2014 UFA Signing Thread


Recommended Posts

Yeah I'm not going to read an article from someone else when I'm asking you a simple question. Okay points aren't everything, but they're something. Be that as it may, if points aren't worth anything to you, what exactly did bernier do that was beneficial to the team? Did he get in important fights to spark the team? Did he lay the lumber in a big spot to get the team going? Did he always created havoc in front of the net that led to goals? Did he cause turnovers that lead to goals? Did he get in on the forecheck every shift to create a lot of possession time? Or maybe backcheck hard every play to help out the d? Any of these things that you want from a forth liner? Because I watched every game just like everyone else on this thread and I didn't see any of that. Bernier was the biggest waste of space on this team and you've come up with zero valid points to argue that.

Didn't really have the time to fully respond myself while at work, plus it's difficult posting from a phone.

You're also putting words in my mouth. I never said Bernier was good or great, just better than Gionta, who, imo, is the worst forward on the team. Less bad doesn't necessarily mean good.

The Rangers got worse today. That's a major plus.

Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice  ·  17m For those asking about Mike Cammalleri and No. 13. Lamoriello said. "We don't have a 13."

At no point in the response did I say that you said bernier was good. I asked you for the 3,498th time what bernier did that was beneficial to the team.

I'm going to develop a blood clot in my brain from this conversation so I'm going to stop now. Good talk.

They both suck and both shouldn't be here. The honeymoon should have ended after the 2012 playoffs

 

I tend to agree with this. CBGB had a nice run, but its time for it to die. I'd rather have Carter than Bernier or Gionta though.

I'll be pissed if Carter goes to the Rangers, he was the best part of CBGB and we ended up with the other 2?  :doh1:  I'd can't imagine Bernier will be playing in the NHL with all these forwards we have.  You can count on one of Brunner or Ryder to be gone, but it depends on who you'd rather take a risk on.  Speedy Gonzales(Ryder) or "Can't even finish on his homework" Brunner. 

Overall happy with the moves made so far.  I'll miss Fayne, but I'll get over it, I'm a Devils fan :devil:  and I can't even get my day started until we've lost a quality player to free agency.  Havlat could catch fire playing with Elias if he can stay healthy.  Hopefully Carter doesn't sign with the Rags and we can pick up this Sekac character on an entry deal.  As of today, we have a lot of forwards and even if we only drop one of them during the offseason, we'll be looking at a pretty deep forward group.

Sekac is gone. He signed with the Habs.

I don't think the Rags will sign Carter. Just a gut feeling. Then again, I thought Lou was signing Brian Gionta so there goes my part-time job as psychic reader.

#RedWings have re-signed D Kyle Quincey for two years at $4.25M average. This after rejections from Niskanen, Boyle, Robidas,

 

Haha. No one wants to go to Detwat anymore.

I'm gonna tell my rags fan buddy to get a carter jersey tomorrow because your gut feelings have been waaay off over the past 48 hours.

Maybe Iginla?

 

Looks like I nailed that one. Tampa needed another top 4 defenseman. Stralman was the perfect fit. Once they cleared space, it was pretty obvious. Tampa has guys who can score. They needed to upgrade their back end. They added a quality top 4 for market value. Callahan apparently was a factor in bringing him and Boyle there.

They're not signing him. Moore re-signed for 2 years, $3 million. It's not even a need. They wasted $1.45 million on Tanner Glass. A mystifying move when afterwards Boyle took a discount to go to Tampa. Besides, they need to save for Brassard, Kreider, Zuccarello and J. Moore.

 

Kinda surprised Fayne wound up in Edmonton. But they needed D. Five years for Pouliot. Gee wiz.

Truth. But I don't feel too bad when no one else in the division improved. I like what the Jackets did picking up Hartnell.

yep, Carter should of stayed and bid farewell to Bernier & Gionta... You've gotta scratch your head and  say, "there we go again, another Lou misfit move"

Contracts aside, you genuinely don't believe the Devils improved with the addition of Cammy (and 20 games of Havlat)? Even more importantly, with the likely subtraction of Brodeuer?

Lamoriello pretty much gives his feeling about Gio's performance & role vs. Bernier:

 

"Stephen Gionta plays any role. He's like that sixth player on a basketball team. So it was a no-brainer to bring him back," the GM said. "Steve Bernier certainly did not have a good year.  We brought him back in an entry-level situation to resurrect his career and see how it goes."

Gionta is a cockroach we will never be rid of.   I mean, they really don't pay him anything, so it's not the end of the world, but you know they're gonna use him.  He's essentially the team mascot.   Who takes critical shifts late in the 3rd period.

 

Think they did okay setting up their roster.   Dunno if Cammalleri gets through his deal without getting bought out, but we'll see.   At least the kid defensemen will be able to play.
