Either that, or he's going to miss 25 games from his annual injury, come back, be mediocre for the remaining part of the season, and then hit the golf course.

I'm at a telescope pulling an all-nighter (think about it), but the weather is awful tonight, so we're just hanging out hoping the clouds go away.

Clouds in Aus? Hmm. Oh yeah, springtime there. You should move your scope to Alice Springs.

No worries, I hold the record for all nighters at McG Arci school. 45 I believe. But we had girls with us. Hope you do. Stay awake DA. We need to find that habitable planet, soon.

Hong Kong signs off.

Not what I called a one year wonder like DD.
he played terrible his last year here: injured, soft, floater, and acting like a little *****. woohoo for him, he's good on a basement team. it was time to move him and he was then as he is now a bad fit worth 7,000,000. and magically, it's his contract year again. ta daaaaa

like i said: not impressed.

What does that have to do with anything? We are talking about him right now. This is an out of town thread in case you didn't know. Some people needs to stop living in the past. I'm not suggesting to bringing him back or anything. No matter what yous said, he's a pure goal scorer and will be useful for any contender team that needs more scoring in the playoffs.

Cammalleri has been scoring goals all of his career. It's not like he stopped scoring in purpose. He was injured a lot when he was with us but in his first 2 years with us, he scored a good amount of goals for us in the games he played.

Again, your comparaison with DD is just ridiculous.

What happened to those posters who thought I was nuts for suggesting we sign Tom Gilbert? 7 points in 21 games, highest +/- on his team playing 21:33 and passes the eye-test as well. We could have had a bargain there. 600k less than our rough and tumble pressbox warmer, Murray, too.

The reason Gilbert lasted so long on the market, like Hainsey, is he was expecting a multi year deal at 3-4 mil/year. He had to take a 1 yaer bargain basement deal because most teams were out of cap space.

Plus Murray was signed with the idea of replacing Emelin, unfortunately he got hurt and also missed a big chunk of the season. Gilbert is a completely different style player.

With the current system in place Cammy would be even more hated than he was around the time he was traded. I fear what would happen to Price's stats if Cammy were on the ice when the opposing team has 3-4 minutes in our end.

Gilbert is not the type of defenceman we need. No thanks.

He's a completely different style player in that he's useful.

As for them being waited out, well, yeah. Of course they wanted/expected more. Who doesn't? Gilbert had actually just been bought out. Not sure how much he realistically could have hoped for considering nobody wanted him for free at 4m/year. Every year there are bargains to be had towards the end of the UFA period. Murray was another one who waited quite a while before signing, iirc. That doesn't change the fact that we went out and signed a useless player to fit a false narrative instead of identifying a possible steal of a signing instead.

Yeah, much better to have Murray eating hot dogs than someone effectively playing #2 defenseman minutes and looking good while doing it.

Not at all what we need.

By far. Gilbert would have been a smart signing and would look good on the 3rd pairing.

Jim Benning...could be a nice acquisition for Buffalo. Seeing teams interviewing them, just like Dallas did with Nill is just another proof that assistant GM DO have some kind of merit for their GM work....

Give me a ****ing break. He plays on Florida. Neither he nor the Panthers is any good. Diaz could play as their #2 and the results are the same. He's soft as butter.

If you think he would be a regular on the team, he won't displace coach favourite Cube and Diaz is about the same value to the team.

I've been reading a few posts from Flyer fans on HF lately saying that Couturier's offensive game is improving and he's looking much better.. Maybe it's just me but I still don't see the offensive potential many Flyer fans see in this guy. I even saw a post from a Flyers fan who said he wouldn't even trade Couturier for Shea Weber 1 for 1 at this point. Yeah right..

I just checked his stats and he as 4 assists in 19 games. I expected his numbers to be much higher TBH.

While his stats are pretty unipressive, it's hard to judge a player with limited viewing of him. I mean, a lot of people here thought Eller would be good despite him not getting points. But Couturier plays more than Eller ever did and does not produce, I'll give you that. He also plays for a really bad team where Claude Giroux has only 11 points in 19 games.

It's really hard to judge him.

Buffalo's GM search is aiming at names like Fenton, Botterill, Benning, Treliving...while the Canadiens can only search for guys like Mcguire, Bergevin, Brisebois.

So pathetic.

That's true I guess.. The Flyers haven't been that great lately. Couturier is still very young and may very well reach his offensive potential one day but I just don't see what Flyer fans see regarding his offensive potential right now.

In the end...nobody is as sure a candidate than the other. Bergevin had great credentials within one of the best organization in the league. I am high on Benning as I will always belive that the assistant GM has to be in sync with the GM.....I think Chiarelli is great hence I think Benning can't be bad.....but still we don't know he'll do in charge. Even if I had Benning in my list of candidates even if he surely doesn't speak the language. As of now, the only difference between your guys and the other guys you named is that....they are not bilingual. Unfortunately for the francos, the league is anglo. So most teams will hire their friends, which most likely will come from something they know, most likely not to be a Q product or a bilingual one. So the pool doesn't end up to be the biggest by talent....ends up being the biggest by friendship.

In the end, you can have 10 incredible candidates to choose from, you'll only pick 1 and chances are....you will have to redo-it in 3-5 years anyway.
