Posted this in the waiver thread also. Thank god D'Agostini is gone. He sucked so bad. The only time we heard his name was when he missed the net by 25 feet. His only point was when he just touched a puck off the faceoff and Dupuis ripped one. He looked awful.
For the contract he signed I was sure he would have brought a little offense and helped our 3rd line. He didn't help the 3rd line at all and against Boston he played on Crosby's wing all game never even noticed him once. Good riddance
When he was with the blues there was maybe a year or a year and a half where he was a decent option to step onto a scoring line if you needed him to or a checking line but not good enough at either to stay there full time. Then he started to slip a bit and he was riding the press box, looks like he kept going backwards after he left us. To Buffalo, his main and only assets are good speed and a hard shot, absolutely nothing else.
He's on a league minimum contract, so it's not surprising that multiple teams put in claims...but I certainly won't complain. He was brutal.
I think we all (Pens fans) had low expectations this season, but he still shat all over those. All the frustration of Tyler Kennedy, with none of the occasional payoff.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
