Yep, another bad 4th overall pick. Though at least he's still playing in the NHL. Still poor bang for the buck.

Jerred Smithson has signed a PTO with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL, per Nick Kypreos.

And if being drafted 4th overall means you are destined for a great NHL career, someone should tell Jason Boisignore he got shafted big time.
There's a great article about his development out there somewhere. Really interesting and basically, yes, he did get shafted.

Well, according to Bonsignore he got shafted. According to everyone else, he just didn't care.

I agree mostly with this, and think Boisignore was the maker of his own demise. If he was really that talented and skilled and doing that well, he'd have made it as more than a depth guy in Tampa Bay and had more than 79 games. It's also pretty telling that a team would scratch their second best scorer in the playoffs. Teams don't do that unless you aren't doing well. The year he was the teams second leading scorer was 1996-97, when he had 54 points in 78 games. He then failed to score a single point in seven playoff games. The teams goalie that playoff run even managed to outscore him (albeit in 22 games).

Additionally, Boisignore makes it sound like Sather wanted him to fail and never wanted him in the organization. If that were true he, firstly, wouldn't have drafted Bonsignore. If anyone GM in the league has the authority and balls to override his scouting staff, its Sather. Secondly, he'd have traded him fairly quickly, not sat on him over what Bonsignores own agent called "three or four teams had made some really attractive offers for me at this point with some big name players involved which I was quite honoured to hear and Glen tried to tell me I was lying."

That all said, the Oilers were downright brutal at developing players from the mid-80's until Sather left, and even after that they failed largely to develop very many players until roughly 2006 and onward. They have to have one of the worst, if not the worst, drafting record over about a 20 year span from about 1985 to 2005, and Bonsignore is right in the middle of that. I doubt he benefitted much from any development. Smyth was fortunate in that he was able to jump straight to the NHL and stay there following the lockout. Bonsignore needed additional development and needed someone to coddle to him to a degree (obviously has a fragile ego based on that article) with his work ethic. Edmonton provided neither.

Norfolk needs the help with Holland and Rakell called up to the Ducks. Speculation that the Ducks will eventually sign him to a two-way deal.

Steck plays well for Boudreau. He did last year in his stint with the Ducks.

Pittsburgh has signed Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond to an NHL contract.

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond to a two-year contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

Letourneau-Leblond’s (leh-TOOR-noh leh-BLAWN) contract is a two-way deal that runs through the 2014-15 season and has an average annual value of $550,000 at the NHL level.

Letourneau-Leblond, 28, has spent the first six weeks of the season playing with WBS on an AHL contract, collecting one assist and 42 penalty minutes in 11 games. He appeared in one NHL preseason game with the Penguins during training camp.
Quote:
Originally drafted by New Jersey in the seventh round (216th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft, Letourneau-Leblond skated two seasons of junior hockey with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) between 2003-05.

I'm a bit shocked it's a 2-year deal, to be honest. Pittsburgh must have liked his AHL play.

They did the same with MacIntyre before last season. I think it's just to guarantee that there's one heavyweight in the system at all times.

I still don't like it, mind you, but it has precedence with Shero. I'll be shocked if PL3 plays more games in Pittsburgh under that deal than MacIntyre did (1 game).

I figured that was the case. Though PL3 has proven over the course of his career to be more of a "jump the other team's skill player/rookie and pummel him" guy than heavyweight.

No wonder the WBS fans love him.

Ah, AHL goonery.

It was actually NHL goonery!

Leblond attacks 18-year-old rookie Marcus Johansson!

But, yeah that's why he's beloved in the AHL.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6-2, 190-lb center Chris VandeVelde to a one-year contract and loaned LW Tye McGinn to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. VandeVelde will be available for the Flyers’ game vs. Montreal tonight, wearing #76.

VandeVelde, 26 (3/15/1987), signed an American Hockey League contract with the Phantoms this past summer and has appeared in 23 games for the club this season, recording seven goals and six assists for 13 points.
http://flyers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=695611

I've been expecting this move since September after VandeVelde outplayed a number of Flyer prospects and lasted with the big club until late in training camp. I'm still mystified why the Oilers never re-signed him, honestly.

Large-framed, physical and defensively responsible centers are an organizational strength for them. And at 26 he was way too old for their club
He's a fourth line guy, but it is surprising that Edmonton let him walk.

Why is it surprising we let him walk? He was horrible here. He was in absolutely no way an NHL calibre player. If he's good enough for your 4th line, congrats

@DarrenDreger 47 s
Likely out there: Van places Z.Hamill on unconditional waivers for purposes of terminating contract and Dal places M.Fortunus on waivers.

This means that Fortunus has signed a two-way contract with Dallas (he was playing in Texas under an AHL contract this year).

Hmmm. Is Hamill on his way to Europe?
