anyone who thinks Asham plays when he wants to is clearly not paying attention.
Asham>>>>>>>>>>>>Shelley. by a mile. at least.

I don't care about fighting. I care about people playing the game, and I refuse to believe Shelley can do it better. The 70s ended a while ago.

That be the case, I understand it even less.

if im not mistaken, it all went something like this:

Homer: i'm gunna sine shellee.

Flyers Fans:

NYR Fans: hahaha, the Flyers need a goalie, and they wasted cap space on shelley. hahahaha.

Sather: whoa, what happened to Shelley? i guess i better try to squeeze boogard into my money hat. i think i have enough dollar-things to do that.

NYR Fans:

Okay, since I'm out of Bourbon and not playing any computer games, I have looked up the details... Both the Rags and Flyers signed their goons on the very first day of the signing period. When the Flyers signed their boy Shelley, the Rags went and signed Boogaard -- for more money and double the years, BTW... $6.5M/4yrs.

... I also found out that Shelley scored a go ahead goal in for the Rags against the Flyers in the next to the last game of the season when the Rangers beat the Flyers to tie them for the last PO berth... And then he scored the opening goal early in the next game that was the 'play-in game' that the Flyers won in OT by shocking Lundqvist. My guess is the Flyers wanted to eliminate him for six games a year against their hated rivals from up north by snatching him from under them.

Yeah, that was pretty bizarre. Asham is the perfect example of a guy who wouldn't be in the league if he didn't play every shift. He's like the anti-Kovalev.

And Asham won't play at all. Asham is a better player than Shelley, but Shelley is a better fighter, Powe is a better all around player for his PK work and speed, and Carcillo is just better.

On top of all that, we've got Nodl, Kalinski, Maroon, Laliberte, Legein and now Testwuide, Holmstrom, Harper (anyone else) who can play RW in a call up roll if needed.

Therefore the roster is full and Asham will have to play somewhere else this year.

Carcillo and Asham are very similar with no glaring differences, where Asham would be making less. Asham had more points and less penalty minutes (I expect Carcillo's to do gown next year regardless), despite both of them doing the exact same role. Just pointing this out so everyone's going in the same direction.

yep. the guy played well here. Why Holmgren signed Shelley who is a fraction of the player Asham is is beyond me.
oh wait a minute. nevermind.

Could be, it's not every season you get the opportunity to play alongside guys like Jody Shelley and Matt Walker.

Well, not many players can say they were traded for one of the top two-way players in the NHL. Walker and a throw in pick for Simone Gagne... Matt has to be great... doesn't he?

People in the thread think the Pens signed Kovy. Asham brings nothing to the table other than about 20 points

And a team first, stand up for your teammates, do whatever the team asks you to do player that can pop in a few goals here and there, and protects his linemates.

For $700K, what the **** else can you ask?

Jody ****ing Shelley makes more and brings less to the table.

It's ridiculous.
