Good signing by the Devils. He's not going to replace much of what Parise's production was, at all, but he could be a pleasant surprise and the Devils seem to have good luck with these types of guys. Look at Sykora; he came in on a PTO, earned a contract, and had a great year after not being in the League for a year or two. Bernier had to sign an AHL contract until earning a contract with the Devils late last season but played a big part on that fourth line which was very good for them upon the line being tried together especially in the playoffs (the Scuderi hit aside).

In case he doesn't do much or doesn't even make the team, they got him on a two-way, which was pretty likely for any team that signed him anyway so at worst he makes Albany better if he can't make an impact in New Jersey.
