Me too.  He was the best one on that line.

 

Yeah? Just wait until he gets 3yrs/7.5m.

If we can ship Little Gio off to Siberia and dump his contract then I would be fine with that deal for Carter.

 

I just do not want Gio on this team, period.

There has to be a trade coming. Has to be.

 

You'd think so.  Just too many forwards right now.

Clemmensen said he was talking to both Brian & Stephen Gionta during free agent process. Tried to convince Brian to come back to NJ.

Lou used him to negotiate. He failed (thak heavens) and so he'll be taking Kinkaid's position in Albany this season.

In the same boat as you.  2 years of seeing him fail on the PK over and over again.

I don't hate him as a person. I hate watching him play. He was great for us in 2012 and I appreciate it but there is no reason that we should still be on a honeymoon with this guy. He stinks now.

Eh, to me Lou signs the CBGB guys because they are there. 4th liners who can play like 4th liners and get paid like 4th liners and Lou doesn't have to worry about getting new ones. Look at it this way, not too long ago we Signed Krys Barch to a two year deal. Signing Gionta, Bernier, and Carter is way more fun than that.

All this hate for gionta yet bernier was 100 times worse than him this year without a doubt. Bernier produced absolutely zilch last year. I loath that signing

Not really. Gio is clearly the worst of the cbgb line. Bernier didn't produce, but he want the drag that Gio was/is on his linemates. For $600k that signing is acceptable.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how positive are you that the Devils will still sign Brian gionta? And if so, would you consider Lou either a) an idiot or b) a moron?

You bring so much knowledge to the boards, I'm eager for a response.

Well, you ain't too bright for writing this after Gionta already signed with the Sabres. How's that for a response.

There's no point in signing him just to trade him. Looks like he's here for the next 2 years.

I'm pretty sure Bernier is, statistically (including advanced), the worst member of the 4th line.  He was abysmal.

 

That being said, I wouldn't have a problem with Gionta if he were used strictly as a 4th line forward.  No PK minutes, no PP minutes (God forbid), no bumping him up on the 3rd line.

 

Problem is PDB has a hardon for him and consistently uses him in situations that are above his paygrade.
