Horrible deal. Why's the point of signing him when we have Connauton?

Kmode 01-13-2013 12:22 PM

See ya later Keith Ballard?

Barker is essentially the exact same player, but about 4 mill cheaper.

Barker will give fans fits every night.

Not good enough to be an everday player but how many times do you get to slot a stalwart into the #8-9 hole...

Dado 01-13-2013 12:22 PM

Never liked him much. But he's cheap enough to bury, so low risk, and worth taking a shot.

Barney Gumble 01-13-2013 12:23 PM

Bad move - I wouldn't have given him even a PTO contract. Hope I'm proven wrong.

I thought you can't shove guys in the minors to remove the cap hit anymore?

Crows* 01-13-2013 12:23 PM

Do not understand this signing...

Because Connauton isn't very good. Besides, if Connauton outplays Barker you just send Barker down to the AHL. The Wolves defense isn't that strong from what I've seen, and it'll be losing it's #1 in Tanev.

I don't understand whats running through MG's head sometimes.

shortshorts 01-13-2013 12:25 PM

Likelyhood we see him is very low. He's where Sulzer was in the line-up last year.

Unless AV has some weird obsession to fill with Rome gone.

Tiranis 01-13-2013 12:25 PM

Perplexing decision. Don't understand this one bit.

VeteranNetPresence 01-13-2013 12:26 PM

if this guy comes anywhere close to the top 6 barring any injuries i will facedesk

thefeebster 01-13-2013 12:26 PM

I know its a petty signing, but i was just yelling "OMG NO F&*^ NO, WHAT THE F ARE YOU DOING?"

I simply do not understand.

I liked Sulzer. :( Still can't believe we traded him for MAG. Great asset management MG. :shakehead

Didn't Barker get cut from an AHL team this season? Did he show some glimpse of something that caught MG's eye? i've barely seen him play, but pretty much EVERYONE seems to be against him.

Canucker 01-13-2013 12:26 PM

Who cares? He's depth, he'll be in Chicago unless he impresses...just a pet project.

GJB 01-13-2013 12:26 PM

Would much rather have an Aaron Rome type d-man than Barker....

Mcnofool6110 01-13-2013 12:26 PM

Here's where you ask yourself: As a team in the Northwest Division that saw Cam Barker play for the Oilers last season, how on this green earth does Vancouver pick him up?!

Ballard at his worst is still alot better then Cam Barker

I honestly dont understand how Barker keeps getting work in NHL at this point

I'd think Corrado is ahead of Connauton right now; I'd I really wonder if Barker is better than Corrado even at this early point in this career.

No, I don't even want him near Chicago. I don't want him near the Canucks.

Tad McMikowsky 01-13-2013 12:28 PM

I'm sorry guys. Nobody deserves to have this garbage player on their team.

Drop the Sopel 01-13-2013 12:28 PM

The downside is his face looks quite Amish

Maybe we want better odds at a #1 pick overall.
