Foster may be a pylon, but a lot of that has to do with his terrible luck getting that injury.

He sure had a different career if he could've stayed healthy.

i can't imagine foster doing that well on bigger ice if he had trouble keeping up with everyone with the flyers in a smaller rink


guess tim brent couldn't find a one-way contract, which is a bummer, i liked him.

True, although I don't think he would have been a 15 year regular or anything. I don't think it changed too much. He is kind of one dimensional.

I don't know. He put up 10 goals in 58 games as a rookie. Not bad. I think he could've been a solid #4 D.

I am surprised Tim Brent couldn't land a spot with a NHL team. He could have been a good replacement for Armstrong in Montreal.

I remember that one shift against the Bruins, where he blocked Chara's shot.

His team, Medvescak, plays on an NHL rink, so he'll play at least half of all games on smaller surface.

Surprised about Brent. He was fantastic as as Leaf and from what I understand, was pretty good as a Cane as well. Absolutely beast PK player.

There are non-conforming rink sizes in the KHL?

Didn't know that.

medvescak are really going to be allowed to play on an NHL surface while everyone else plays with a different rink size???

Two players whose biggest weakness is skating, kinda odd that they'd move to big ice.

I absolutely loved Tim Brent as a Leaf though, hopefully he finds his way over there.

In OHL, Belleville plays on the Euro ice. In SM-Liiga, teams are allowed to choose from 3 options. Not uncommon at all. Admiral Vladivostok will play on the NHL-sized rink as well. Could be a sign more teams move to the smaller rinks soon.

I liked Foster in both his stints with the Wild, but the second stint was more nostalgia than anything he accomplished on the ice.

Best of luck to him in the KHL.

Brent's problem is he doesn't give you enough offense to play on a third line, but he's a little too finesse to play on a traditional fourth line.

Still I'm a little surprised he didn't sign somewhere like Phoenix where his defensive/faceoff abilities are more in line with the style of play.

Surprised Brent wasn't able to find work elsewhere, good bottom 6 player to have.

Another former Oiler goes to the KHL.
Our supporting players in the past few years have been so bad.

He was surprisingly solid during his stint in Finland. I actually thought he would've been good 3rd pairing D in the NHL after the lockout ended but i guess not.

How the hell could Tim Brent not find a job?

He's an awesome 4th liner, loved him on the Leafs.

Because he wasn't an awesome 4th liner for the Canes? And now he's a 30-year old that's competing for a position with AHLers that are likely younger/cheaper than he is.

It's really no surprise. These kind of players are the ones that were most hurt by the last lockout.

I'd have taken Tim Brent for around 1 mill to centre the Habs 4th line...couldn't believe the Leafs let him go when they did...that PK a couple years ago where he got the standing ovation from the Air Canada Centre after blocking like 4 or 5 shots in a row and then clearing the puck outta the zone was epic; gave me goosebumps...
