Completely forgot about him. Surprised he hasn't signed with a team. Good pickup if he sticks.

GREAT pickup. Surprised he wasn't signed earlier for them.

With Byfuglien, Bogosian, Enstrom, White and a wildcard like Trouba, the Jets D is looking solid. Not to mention their good forward additions in Frolik, Setoguchi and the continued development of Kane, Wheeler, Little, etc.

SoupNazi 09-10-2013 05:53 PM

I was waiting for him to sign.

do0glas 09-10-2013 06:31 PM

Hope he makes it, he can be a good second pairing guy with the right partner.

Face Of Bear 09-10-2013 06:32 PM

I remember when people said he was the best player in the Phaneuf trade *cough* I mean, the Ian White trade

PhiladelphiaKessel 09-10-2013 06:32 PM

Loved this guy in Toronto. Is he still a capable top 4 d? Or more of a bottom pairing guy at this point?

He's a good #5.

What if he grows back his stache? Does it make him a #4 then? :D

I am trying to figure out who loves ex-Leafs more, Canes or the Jets?

White's hometown probably has something to do with it. I don't think the depth allows for White to sign with the Jets but it gets him in an NHL camp and he gets on-ice exposure.

Do Make Say Think 09-10-2013 07:08 PM

There has to be something up with this guy

I really liked him even when he was on the Leafs

He isn't THAT bad is he?

An underrated point...even if a player attends a camp, he's still a UFA and sign with anyone. Sopel signed with Toronto while at Detroit's camp IIRC.

So if a player comes in and has a good camp, it might lead to other oppertinities.

I just know that there are at least 29 teams White would sign with...

Ronaldo 09-10-2013 07:14 PM

Great, great pickup

Same thing happened with Andreas Lilja a few years ago. He went to Sharks camp on a PTO and signed with Anaheim after he was released IIRC. White could very well earn a contract through camp, just not in Winnipeg.

To me, White's still a pretty good bottom pairing defenseman capable of playing on both special teams situations. It's just Winnipeg's already got so many NHL-caliber defensemen. I just don't know if he makes it for that reason. I think he'll be on someone's roster come opening night though.

meh... post Lidstrom he was just.. well, meh. Was a healthy scratch pretty much all the way down the stretch (behind Kronwall, Ericsson, Quincey, Smith, Kindl, Dekeyser, Lashoff, and Coliacovo.. so #9) and no one was interested in him at the deadline, and apparently now as a UFA. I don't think his value is much of anything. And we badly needed right handed players on our blue line, by the way.

Zirakzigil 09-10-2013 07:54 PM

Thought he would have gotten a contract and not a PTO.

allan5oh 09-10-2013 08:13 PM

Kinda weird given our rhd depth:

Byfuglien
Bogosian
Trouba
Redmond
Postma

Top two are top four, trouba will be top four probably this year, and postma and Redmond are both ahl all stars with top four potential.

But these are best case scenarios. Without a doubt Buff & Bogo are 1-2. While I'm as big a Trouba fan as there is and IMO he is a virtual lock to be a top pairing guy one day, he is still a 19 year old raw rookie on the 1st year of his ELC. Redmond is on a 2-way and missed most of last season with a potentially career ending injury, and Postma has yet to prove he is more then a 6-7 guy. A guy like White might be a nice 1-2 year bottom pairing transition guy if he comes cheap.

uncleben85 09-10-2013 11:08 PM

Now idea how he lasted this long.
Really hope he signs on somewhere.

Canes/TOML trade-offs are nothing new. You hired our damn coach once upon a time ago, not to mention lifted Francis and Wesley back in '03 and '04.

He signed with Chicago while with Detroit.

Sorry, I've never liked Sopel much and it bugged me to think he was with Toronto ;). Needed to correct that.

Ian "Norris" White ;)

mstad101 09-10-2013 11:55 PM

Wanted this guy in Vancouver's camp. He can easily be a good option for a #6 role. And it adds to the right side depth for the Canucks.
Jets are starting to look more like a playoff threat. Cut down on the quality chances and I think you see Pavs put up solid #1 stats.
