I'm going to be upset if he gets a contract, especially given how cheap a guy like Ponikarovsky signed for.
I'm with you on re-signing Ponikarovsky. We definitely should have.

Inviting Darche to a tryout is an absolute no risk move. If he earns a contract, that means he outplayed the other guys in camp. Given how well he played in a third line role in 10-11, it's a shot worth taking.

Dean McAmmond was offered a tryout in 09-10 and that turned out to be a very good move. I believe Manny Malhotra was offered a tryout with the Sharks in 09-10 too, which was a great a move. Sometimes guys slip through the cracks in the offseason.
