Is that you laughing at your own inability to understand that Mancari lights up the AHL and is a great Amerks signing?

If so, I'm laughing as well.

I've always wondered about people's inability to understand that an NHL team has to sign depth players for the farm club. Strange.

Mancari was a top 10 goal scorer in the AHL the past 2 years, he is an AMAZING AHL pick up who is already familliar with and was successful on the team.

This is how they vent their anger at the lack of NHL signings; they make snarky remarks about signing AHL players for the AHL team while there's still NHL talent to be had.

Best moment as a sabre?

I just remember the arena getting jacked cause a guy like him was out there and doing something helpful for the team and no one really expected it ( I believe the sabres were trying to clinch in those few games right?)

Solid signing. Roch needs him, and he can fill in fine in an injury role. I still think there's a 5% chance he could start scoring at the big-league level. Like a super-late blooming Matt Moulson.

Yep...great depth signing. He'll add some nice scoring to rochester. It will be nice to see him playing for rochester again.

Well said! Those types of comments about Mancari are just par for the course for the clueless. As has been said, solid depth AHL signing. Approve.

So what if he gets a call up, here or there, to play on the 4th line?

I can't believe that bothers people so much.

There was actually about a week stint when he played really well with Vanek.

I definitely see this as a decent signing for the AHL. No doubt that Mancari can score. I am just always a little skeptical about clubs re-signing players that didn't pan out in the past. That said, i have not followed him since he left the club, so i am not sure where he is career wise...

He did pan out for the Pirates though. He didn't pan out as an NHLer but there's 0 expectations in that regard with this signing. He may not be the absolute most desirable AHL winger but he's clearly one of the best AHL scorers.

He played really well during the sabres playoff push in 10-11. I remember him and gerbe really stepped up.

Or, sometimes people like to joke around during the slow offseason. Stop taking things so seriously.

Let's snuff out his hopes and dreams. Take away the goal he's been working for years to realize. We'll get a great effort from him in Rochester. I'm sure Mancari realizes as well as anyone that his chances of making the NHL are slim.

Has Mark made any comments about the signing? Is he resigned to the fact that he's just a great AHLer? I'm a bit surprised he would come back here when there must be some teams out there who would give him a legitimate shot at making the NHL.

$550,000 NHL/$250,000 AHL, per CapGeek.

This means that he took a paycut to come back and that he likely won't be called up unless it's an emergency recall.

He was on a 1 way deal last year right?

$250k for an AHLer is top tier money
