Good for him.

"one cup of coffee, then I'll go..."
Cool that he got his cup of coffee with his hometown team, I wish him well. But I won't be missing him, actually glad that a spot opens up in WBS that he would've taken had he re-signed.

Jesus Vitale 06-15-2013 12:46 PM

Guess he was tired of being an AHL-NHL tweener. He'll probably be at least a full-time starter. Even if it is in Khabarovsk...

Jacob 06-15-2013 12:48 PM

Good for him. It'll be (mildly) interesting to see what veteran d-man they bring in to fill Reese's role.

When he was signed last year, Madden went on about how he was going to be a fixture on the NHL roster. Just awful.

Homeland Security 06-15-2013 12:51 PM

He always seemed like a nice guy when he was with the Isles. Good luck to him!

Further proof Madden doesn't know jack ****. Mr. Spittle Bag finds the most dramatic or controversial thing to say, and says it. The end. If Malkin had not agreed to a deal, he'd be talking about how there's a risk of him leaving for the KHL as he spends the summer in Russia. The guy is a grade-A moron / radio troll. It is amazing to me tht he has a job on Pittsburgh radio. You'd hope there would be enough complaints.... bah, I won't go there.

terex 06-15-2013 01:59 PM

Lowest common yinzer denominator, sir. That's why Madden is successful. It was true in wrestling (I know, I know...) and even moreso now.

Good luck to Reese. Maybe he'll cross paths with Endicott.

The guy wasn't awful. He's certainly not an NHL calibre player on a playoff team, but he was decent enough as an injury callup playing 10 or 12 minutes a night.

terex 06-15-2013 02:08 PM

Didn't say he wasn't a viable emergency call up. But a regular on our roster is a whole other ball of wax.

Harv 06-15-2013 02:45 PM

Don't blame him. Guys in the KHL get paid.

gordie 06-15-2013 03:46 PM

How could this happen? Mark Madden had him as the 5th or 6th best defenseman on the Pens depth chart??:confused:

HuskerTornado 06-15-2013 04:04 PM

Not surprising after watching him in his call up games. Wasn't impressed.

In a way this is a good move for us as it means we have a D spot available on WBS. Isn't Harrington moving up this year? Or is it someone else?

Yes, Harrington is eligible this year. Pouliot and Maatta will be the season after.

eXile59 06-15-2013 06:26 PM

Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

Zen Arcade 06-15-2013 07:52 PM

Meh, he wasn't really anything to write home about in WBS.

He also saw way more powerplay time than I would've liked.

EdwardBlake 06-15-2013 10:11 PM

Anyone have a realistic hypothetical of how WBS defense will look this coming year?

Burgs 06-15-2013 10:42 PM

Signed:
- Samuelsson (3rd year)
- Dumoulin (2nd year)
- McNeill (2nd year)
- Harrington (rookie)
- Ruopp (rookie)
- D'Agostino (rookie)

RFA:
- Grant (would be 5th year)

Quite a bit of talent but not much experience in that mix. Should be a safe bet that Joey Mormina gets re-signed. At age 31 he likely won't find anything better than captaining a competitive AHL team. Add in another veteran or two and WBS will be set. Maybe an old NHL washout like Eaton, but probably a tweener like Reese or maybe they just bring back Merth and/or Wild again.

Honour Over Glory 06-15-2013 10:51 PM

Guys like this come and go, it is nice to see him find a regular job elsewhere and get more money though. Best of luck to him.

Baby Pens aren't going to suffer too much, losing veteran AHL defensemen.

Jacob 06-16-2013 01:26 AM

they need a veteran D and preferably a right-handed one, but:

Dumoulin - Samuelsson
Harrington - XXXX
Mormina - D'Agostino
McNeill, Ruopp

Harrold, Meech, or Gilroy could fill Reese's shoes and then some.

invictus 06-16-2013 01:17 PM

I am excited to read about what Harrington can do!

PensBandwagonerNo272 06-17-2013 07:08 PM

Good for him. I actually really liked his game. Kind of stuck inbetween though i guess

Take the money and run! Good luck Dylan!

Fire Shero* 06-17-2013 09:39 PM

Any idea how much his khl deal is worth or is that not released to the public?
