I can now sleep at night knowing that Mayer won't be the starter for the Dogs. Best news I've heard in a long time.

Yes, this is great news. If Price or Budaj get injured, he should be the call up this year IMO.

Without question the single most important signing for the Hamilton Bulldogs franchise this season. If he's the #1 goalie ahead of Mayers, Tokarski has more than proven that he should be #1 hands down.

That took long enough. Just glad he's finally signed.

Like I've stated before, I think this kid could very well be our next back-up.

Havn't watched much of him ( I think I remember seeing him at WJC) but his junior/AHL pedigree is quite impressive , I wonder why he was given up
on at such a young age.

He wasn't really given up on, the Bolts did have a lot of depth in nets going forward and I guess he became expandable

Best news Hamilton could get all offseason. Glad to hear they should have solid goaltending and a foundation to build out from. Now much more intrigued by Hamilton, though still expecting if not a rough season a number of rough patches.

Hopefully he has managed to get a nice hefty AHL salary at least. I think he has shown enough that he deserves to be paid well as a strong #3 guy, with a $150k or $200k AHL salary at least. It's good to have a #3 option for injury insurance, as well as to have a strong goalie to make Hamilton more competitive. He couldn't realistically have expected a 1-way deal yet, but he probably could have got better money by going overseas.

I don't see why it would be doubtful. Last year's team was very young with a lot of ELCs. But the Habs seem to have recognized that paying some vets would be a good plan for this year. Heck, Mayer signed 100/125k. As did Blunden and Tarnasky. And St.Pierre is even more. I think after years on the ELC cheap scale, Tokarski has earned a higher AHL salary too. He should get more than Mayer, anyway, so $125k would be the starting point, and I could see paying him as much as St.Pierre.

Great signing it will give the organization better depth at goaltender position in case of an injury to Price or Budaj.

Because our management pulled a derp and put more stock into a goalie who's done less and hasn't done as well as Tokarski, which totally means he's better...

Mayer should be the backup. Actually, Mayer should be starting in Switzerland.

We also have Delmas and Condon and we share Wheeling with Pittsburgh, so I doubt both can go there.

Mayer was easier to sign than Tokarski because he was asking for less.

Very doubfull.

Looking at last year, we were last in AHL, last in GF and 4th last in GA.
Our two best scorers were Dumont and Beaulieu who scored 31 points.

Looking at the same link (best scorers) you will see that Tokarski, despite having much better GAA (2.22 vs 2.93 for Mayer) and SV% (.927 vs .908) ended up with a similar W-L (6-8-0 vs 16-17-3).
Our best scorer (Thomas) had only 35 points which would put him in 8th position in the teams that made the finals.





As I wrote in the Hamilton thread, we should expect a better result (maybe 12th and .500) and making the PO would be great.

We have been at the bottom of the pit for two years.
Last time we had more W than lost was back in 2010-11 when RC was coach and the team saw: Deharnais, Pacioretty, Maxwell, Wyman, Palushaj Enqvist and Sanford.
Dumont would be 7th in scoring in that team.
The next year we kept a few pieces and Jodoin was the coach but we had 34-35-0-2 (.493).
BTW, Enqvist is doing well in KHL.

So prepare the parade if we make the PO.

Mayer got more than Tokarski.

Tokarski got 575,000 while Mayer got 620,000.
