hope this is true! loved him during the playoffs and hopefully he can put together a good season.:yo:

Illmatic Stoic 06-27-2011 07:36 PM

Awesome if true! He was amazing for us in the playoffs.

(Be ready to dislike him throughout the season at some points, but when the playoffs start he is golden).

Bobby Lou 06-27-2011 07:37 PM

That's solid value for an established fourth line centre; better then paying a guy like Ryan Johnson $1.2 million or having a total scrub like Bolduc down there at league minimum.

KDizzle 06-27-2011 07:38 PM

Love it. Though I suspect he may become a whipping boy in the reg. season, what he brings in the playoffs is invaluable

EpochLink 06-27-2011 07:38 PM

DELISH! Lappy is back!

Tiranis 06-27-2011 07:38 PM

Awesome. Exceptional player on the 4th line and can hold his own on the 3rd line if needed. Might not be as good in the regular season, but it's worth it for what he brings in the playoffs.

BoHorvatFan 06-27-2011 07:39 PM

It's great value for a guy who played on our third line for 3 rounds. He's amazing insurance, can PK, I'm glad it's a two year deal.

JumpierPegasus 06-27-2011 07:39 PM

Awesome. Playoff stud. Not a great player in the regular season, but is just so clutch.

Hopefully this is true

Just A Bit Outside 06-27-2011 07:40 PM

Great signing if true.

That "$100,000" extra Bieksa got compared to the Hamhuis contract just came off Lappy's contract. I was expecting around $1.1M.

Therefore, net effect of $Nil at the end of the day.

Considering what we've seen in recent years on the 4th line I doubt he'll be a whipping boy.

Really like the size, speed and strength down the middle with Kesler, Malhotra and Lapierre. Solidifies the middle of the ice for the next couple years.

How reliable is this source?

He's an RDS reporter and pretty reliable.

He works for RDS

Awesome Sauce 06-27-2011 07:42 PM

Excellent news! Great value for someone who was so consistent in the playoffs for us.

Works for RDS; so not just some guy.

This is really good news. Assuming our forwards (centres especially) stay relatively healthy next year, our 4th line is going to be a very good one with Lapierre.

I say that because he will have a stretch of games where he doesn't really contribute offensively and in those games may take dumb penalties to perhaps cost us a few games.

He said it himself, he plays on emotion and in the dog days of the regular season, he may get away from what makes him truly effective.

But still love having him on the team, gives us great C depth, so no complaints from me.

Love this deal!

Now confirmed by RDS.

VanEric 06-27-2011 07:47 PM

Good news. Two left handed centres and two right handed centres is a big bonus.

King of Anarchy 06-27-2011 07:47 PM

Fantastic! Bit less than I expected, too.

LAPPY! Awesome deal.. love it.

BobbySmithFan 06-27-2011 07:50 PM

Sedin
Kesler
Manny
Lapierre

If the rink was narrower and there were no need for wingers we'd be a shoe in
