Is Eric Godard ok??

I am a Pens fan a see that they signed him. What type of player is he? I assume he'll see 4th line duties, but will he bring anything to the table?

He has shown flashes that he can play decent hockey, but for the most part, he'll warm your bench until you need a scrap.

Just hope that he isn't given a regular shift. Last season Keenan played Godard a lot more than he should have, and that resulted in a lot of goals against. He has one duty, fighting. When he isn't fighting he's completely useless. He's a great fighter though, probably one of the best in the league.

Keenan thought he could be an every day player and he is not. He has decent speed and can fight, but if you play him 82 games a year or expect anything else, it's too much. Ideally he plays 20 games a year against tough opponents and fights once or twice in his 4 minutes of ice time. He's a solid guy.

Great ink-job too. I thought he improved his game greatly last year. He might not be an every day player yet, but compared to previous seasons it was a much better Eric Godard this season. His skating was improved beyond belief.

He's one of the best enforcers in the league. Has pretty good speed for a big guy and will be fine playing on the Pens fourth line.

He started believing he was a regular player. That is the kiss of death for this type of player. At first, he was great stepping up and defending the stars but that kind of tailed off in time. If he sticks to his game, he can be great.

Useless... good for 2 minutes a game... doesn't hit... and unless he is fighting Boogard he rarely wins a fight

Rob Kerr would disagree.

he's a good tough guy.....limited minutes because of limited skill.....isn't a liability.

he is good if you need someone to throw punches and to keep other players a lil bit honest around crosby and they such.... but you might as well not even put a stick in his hand.... he was useless to do anything besides fighting........but i guess everyone has their niche
