You know there's a problem when that happens. Seriously, the guy is awful. Sure, you could shelter him and just play him on the PP with limited even strength minutes, but he really doesn't offer anything besides his shot. His creativity isn't good at all, his passing isn't anything spectacular, he doesn't use his size, and his defense isn't atrocious.

I give it three weeks before Flyers fans hate him, in New Jersey, it got to the point where this thread was made: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1086477. That was only a month and like 9 days since the Devils acquired him.

Some of the highlights from that thread:

"Just move Foster to Championship Plaza and put the dopey bronze statue on the ice, it would give us better defense."
"Dowd's running a camp looking for Foster's replacement. (with pictures of kids playing hockey)."
This means Homer gave him a 2 year contract at 1.5 million.
