TB sign G Sebastien Caron for remainder of season (one-way, $525k)

confirmed by EE:

He'll have to pass through waivers, but since he can only play with TB, he won't be claimed (also why Turco wasn't claimed when the timing was perfect with Garon's injury)

Well, he posted good stats in the DEL (0.932 SV%, 2.57 GAA). But it's... the DEL. His W/L ratio is a little odd to say the least (25-23).

For you history buffs, he was the Penguins goalie on Nov. 8, 2003, in Tampa Bay’s 9-0 victory at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and allowed eight goals on 37 shots in 49 minutes. (...)

The fallout from the move will be Dustin Tokarski going back to AHL Norfolk when Caron joins the team.

I want to see Caron play with the mask he wore for the Roosters.

Random fact: Caron played with Jassen Cullimore, Jeff Cowan, and Mike York in Iserlohn.

Iserlohn isn't a powerhouse. They got swept in their play-in best of 3 series against DEG (who have JS Aubin), which made Caron available.

They finished 10th out of 14 for that last wild card spot. Being 2nd or whatever in goalie stats on a team like that is impressive, but Vokoun logic.

Looking at who was available in the DEL (i.e., eliminated)
Tyler Weiman
Jochen Reimer
FORMER SOLAR BEAR SCOTT LANGKOW
Patrick Ehelechner (rights owned by PIT)
FORMER SOLAR BEAR TYLER MOSS
Dimitri Patzold

3:25 - sounds like the crowd's singing "Caron, wir wollen dich tanzen sehen!" = "Caron, we want to see you dance!".

I should probably watch more German hockey.
