Blue Jackets sign Brett Lebda
 
Saw it in their GDT.

Guess they wanted to make it clear they want dibs on the top spot of the lottery.:)

[CBJ] - Blue Jackets sign Brett Lebda
 
http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=612590

Would be top pairing on the Oilers right now:laugh:

Is it a two-way contract? Possibly an AHL signing.

Mathradio 01-19-2012 07:08 PM

No matter how many "More horrible player" threads Lebda was featured in, he couldn't rebound.

Moskau 01-19-2012 07:10 PM

Howson took in a few Sabres games this past week and wanted to be sure they got Yakupov.

Lebda wasn't the horrendous dman that most Wings/Leafs fans will have you believe.



But he wasn't good either.

Sh00terMcGavin 01-19-2012 07:12 PM

LOL yes he was ..

hes terrible ... worst dman i have ever seen

kingsholygrail 01-19-2012 07:14 PM

Oh my. Well, it's a signing. No details on the amount?

EllertoKostitsynGoal 01-19-2012 07:15 PM

If they weren't already terrible I'd say this is the greatest tanking signing since Khabibulin.

:laugh: I remember that game.


Aki Berg was the worst dman I have ever saw. Lumme was pretty terribad as well. I didn't think Lebda was as bad as them, but still not good. He should be like a teams 10th defenceman or something.

LeafsandSharksfan 01-19-2012 07:19 PM

I know you guys think your defence can't get any worse

It will

Hivemind 01-19-2012 07:19 PM

I'm so sorry.

Incognito 01-19-2012 07:20 PM

Howson is basically saying "Fire me, please!"

For Jackets fans' sake, I hope this clown of a GM gets the boot, sooner rather than later.

They really ran out of AHL and ECHL d-men within Columbus' reach.

Sucks that Martinek is out for them, but any other AHL d-man would've been slightly better than Lebda the derpanator.

Lebda has been playing in an AHL only deal with the Jackets' AHL affiliate since November.

Hanta Yo 01-19-2012 07:22 PM

He does a great impersonation of being a forward, every time he's on the ice...

When you thought CBJ couldn't go any lower...

Even if Patrick Roy has been uneven as a GM in the Q so far, I'm sure he could do a better job than Howson. Heck, he could even coach the Blue Jackets as well.

A match made in heaven.

Pi 01-19-2012 07:26 PM

When he signed with the Leafs, I was so happy.. All he did was play like crap though :(.

I'll still remember his goal against the Habs though. :laugh: Gold.

So do you think he deserves this contract? His AHL stats do not look bad.

re5piration 01-19-2012 07:27 PM

The tank has now been made official, well done BJs.

More specifically, a great impression of being Scott Gomez. Good at skating the puck through the neutral zone, then doing absolutely nothing with it. Useless in both the offensive and defensive zones, and very undersized.
