Michal Handzus signed? (denied, signs with Sharks)

I can go for Zeus coming back...perfect temp stop-gap measure while we assess Shenn and Couturier...


Quote:
As a result, even if the cap space is there to compete to sign Laich (it will be if Leino elects not re-sign with the club), they may still be better served to bring in a cheaper stop-gap such as former Flyers center Michal Handzus. Zeus will have to take a paycut wherever he goes and is likely to be on the market beyond the first day or two of the UFA period. He was never fast -- and is now one of the slowest skaters in the league -- but he is still strong on faceoffs and solid defensively with underrated hands.

Now that is not fair...

I think people are underrating Zeus' capabilities despite him not being fleet of foot...

Zues was slow LAST time he was here. No thanks.

Whos faster, Zues or Arnott? I'd rather go for the latter.

Seravalli said Flyers are possibly interested in Ryder...although he keeps mentioning Stamkos as the target and a 7 out of 10 chance Flyers get him...

As far as Zeus..well you don't need skating speed to take faceoffs. Maybe he can take the faceoff and change on the fly....as long as he can get off the ice in less than a minute

Didn't they try to trade calder back for zeus even though he was out the rest of the year with the knee injury. A guy on one leg is worth more than you, it's time to hang it up.

Zeus is considerably slower even compared to when he first signed with the Kings. He is now fourth line or nothing in the opinion of most Kings fans. He is still money on special teams though, when it comes to the penalty kill, there are few players you'd rather have out there than Zeus, and he still was our second center for our second powerplay unit at times because of his presence in front of the net, but he is now borderline outmatched in 5 on 5 play on the third line. It may work out as he and Simmonds have considerable chemistry and made up one of the best shutdown lines we've had over the past several season.

Unless Schenn completely falls on his face, Homer already said he is looking forward to having Schenn in the lineup next year. Highly doubt they go out and get a 3rd line center.

Handzus would be fantastic on the fourth, if he was willing to accept less than a million.

Schenn is on the roster...otherwise they need to sign another center.

Not interested in Zues. Sorry to say it. Winning faceoffs is cool, but he needs to be able to skate. Even on fourth line. There are plenty of others that I'd be interested in to fill that role.

Adam Hall

Zenon Konopka

Bobby Clarke is not really busy. Maybe we should ask him if he can still kill penalties and play 4th line.
