Weber-Josi
Jones-Ekholm
Volchenkov-Ellis

dougie1107 07-07-2014 04:51 PM

Sooo

Josi - Weber
Ekholm - Ellis
Volchenkov - Jones

Or reverse Eks and Volchenkov?

AtlantaWhaler 07-07-2014 04:52 PM

Good, low risk deal. He's not great, but it could be worse.

pekkaslap 07-07-2014 04:52 PM

Is this guy an upgrade over Bartley?

Hard not to be.

Sounds about right. Ekholm and Ellis looked great together towards the end of the season when we were actually winning games. Have to imagine they'll start together, but anything can happen. I imagine the 2nd and 3rd pairings will get similar ice time until one pulls away from the other.

Roman Yoshi 07-07-2014 04:56 PM

psh called that ****.

Privy 07-07-2014 05:00 PM

Hits and blocks shots... Should look good next to Jones.

triggrman 07-07-2014 05:01 PM

Yeah, better than Bartley seems to be the theme here.

Enoch 07-07-2014 05:01 PM

Yeah. This was an obvious fit. Defensive responsible shot blocker that plays the left side.

I think several of us called this possible signing.

He should do well with Ellis or jones IMO.

jwhouk 07-07-2014 05:03 PM

.... Danny Markov?

AtlantaWhaler 07-07-2014 05:12 PM

He'll be used a lot on our 1st PK.

Gnashville 07-07-2014 05:33 PM

Finally someone to translate for Kamenev:sarcasm:

in practice... as a pylon.

Totally unnecessary move... No foot speed. You all hated Hal Gill, and this guy makes him look like Doughty. :)

I Will Son 07-07-2014 05:36 PM

I'd say hes our 7th Dman. I like Ekholm

You like Bartley over Volchenkov?

AtlantaWhaler 07-07-2014 05:37 PM

With this signing, we still have a ton of cap room with only Ellis and Ekhom to re-sign

This was what I was thinking. Bartley is only on the roster because the team has no depth right now.

Roman Yoshi 07-07-2014 05:47 PM

Volchenkov is > Bartley. He is perfect fit to slide alongside Jones or Ellis and is good on the PK.

We'll still have like $12m I think. Use it wisely. And a lot of these deals are 1 year types, Fisher will also probably retire after next season (assuming he gets healthy enough to even see the ice) which opens up more cap space.

Jarnberg 07-07-2014 05:56 PM

Hopefully Ellis and Volchenkov do not get paired together. That line will get eaten up with their terrible skating.

He did OK with Hal Gill.

PredsV82 07-07-2014 06:05 PM

worst case scenario he is the 7th Dman.

will be interesting to see if he can hang in Lavys uptempo system
