You've seen three fight videos and you're prepared to say he's worse than Desbiens when you've seen him maybe 6, 7 times?

For all we know Desbiens does have a contract lined up, or hell, maybe he's looking at offers when he sees the glut of young forwards we have in our lineup currently. We don't exactly have much space for an aspiring forward who wants to play in the NHL next year or two.

Desbiens is good yes, but I can't understand why you're all *****ing and moaning.

"Why did we sign him?"
"Oh my god, we got the cup.."

Etc, etc.

You can't sign 48 Gaboriks and Cammalleri's to your team to play on the farm and the NHL team, you need DEPTH! Look at the players that were healthied for the last three Stanley Cup teams come their winning game...theres some great depth there.
