First off, these sarcastic 'bring on the Cup!' posts every time the team makes a minor-league signing are really freaking irritating. Every team makes 5-8 signings like this every summer.

As for the signing itself, yuck. Don't understand it at all. Desbiens regressed horribly in the AHL last season and scored 3 goals in 60 games. And is completely useless at the NHL level because of his lack of skating ability - we've been down this road before.

If he's an Arniel favourite who you want to give an AHL contract to, OK, I guess. But to waste a contract spot on this guy when we've let better AHL depth like Bitz and Duco - who were infinitely better callup options - go, is strange indeed.
