I hope Brandon does well for you guys. He's a great guy. 2.5M per for four years is way overpaying though. We would've been ok with about 1.2M for 2 years. Wowzers.

Bullsmith 07-01-2012 02:37 PM

Toronto has shown that throwing big money at 3-4th line free agents isn't a way to win, but even if we're going to lose let's be TOUGHER.

Prust is the guy NYR got for Higgins after robbing us blind. A bit of karmic justice to have him land in MTL. Replacing Darche-Palushaj/Enqvist-Weber/Diaz with Prust-Armstrong-Boullion is at least a step in the right direction. Add Moen and White and we're just one enormous body away from being a decently tough team.

Meanwhile Ottawa's giving away their toughness left and right. Konopka, Carkner and Foligno all gone elsewhere today.

Welcome to Montreal :yo: was hoping he would sign here

LesCanadiensSontLà 07-01-2012 02:37 PM

98,5 fm says 10M for 4 years

ClasslessGuy 07-01-2012 02:38 PM

too much money but ******* it we needed that player

Nidema 07-01-2012 02:38 PM

2.5 is too much. But addresses a definite need.

We'll see over the 4 years.

how old is this guy anyway?

Respeck 07-01-2012 02:38 PM

Overpayment but **** he was needed, very glad we got him!

WeberBombs 07-01-2012 02:38 PM

YES! :handclap:

ChoseLa 07-01-2012 02:39 PM

Prust, Moen, Armonstrong, White in the bottom 6, that's sand paper and nastyness.

Kane One 07-01-2012 02:39 PM

You guys are going to love him.

It might be a drop too much, but damn, you will love the guy.

Emily 07-01-2012 02:39 PM

Like I said before, not a fan of the term at all.

LeHab 07-01-2012 02:39 PM

Thinking he will be a third liner, and not a 4th.

Dharvey33 07-01-2012 02:40 PM

Good sign overpaid by 500k but it's not my bill so i don't really care.

Will make a good 3rd-4th line grinder capable of playing on the pk and bringing 10-13 goals per year.

I bet there a lot of teams that wanted him.

Iwishihadacup 07-01-2012 02:40 PM

3% of the cap... relax guys, we got this

Sonny Lamateena 07-01-2012 02:41 PM

You guys will love him! Perfect bottom 6 player. Never takes a shift off, tough, physical, and very good on the penalty kill. Sad to see him leave the Rangers but wish him success in Montreal.

Habarazzi 07-01-2012 02:41 PM

How is 2.5 mil over payment when guys like D.Wideman get over 5 million? c'mon people .... either you jump into the free agent pool or go home

good signing

BobbyFischer* 07-01-2012 02:41 PM

Holy**** we actually got him.

no way???!!!
