Holy 1994 Batman!

Anyway, this is exactly the type of signing I did NOT want. He would have been a perfect signing right about now had we not re-upped with either Adams or Dupuis. He could have been insurance in case Vitale wasn't ready for the fourth-line C role. Or maybe third-line insurance for one of the kids if we didn't bring Dupuis back. Since both are back, this wasn't really necessary.

It's bad news for Letestu, though. Park can easily beat him out of a job, imo. Also bad news for Jeffrey and Tangradi from a numbers perspective.

I've always admired Park's game, but I just don't see why he is needed on this team. I also don't see why we're not bringing in people with a scoring pedigree if we're going to take a flyer on somebody. Cory Stillman, J.P. Dumont, Yashin. That type of player.

Anyway, Park can make this team. I have little doubt. His style fits. But again, he's from the redundancy department of redundancy.
