Seriously, he's having a great season for the Albany Devils.
A Long Islander to boot! Would love it.

There is only one move to be made right now and that is to put a claim in for Yannik Weber. He's not that great but this D corp needs a body.

Labarbera is a decent NHL back-up. The only question I would have is would Wang/Snow be willing to add his 1 million dollar salary to the books.

From what I have seen of Weber he has a pretty good NHL slap shot from the point (we could use that on the PP because A-mac shot is avg at best and Visnosky still being injured). My concern would be Weber defensive game which is very so so I believe.

Might be worth a shot due to low salary $650,000 and young age 25.

Boston Globe is speculating that the Predators or us could be landing spots for Jonas Hiller

Nashville has been the hot name for Hiller for 2 weeks. They're waiting to see how long Rinne is going to be out. They haven't been able to get an accurate assessment.

Somone on the main board called Weber a poor man's MAB which is just about the worst you could call a hockey player. Snow won't claim him but I wonder if he might think LaBarbera to be worth a shot? I know he's not any good but might be a better back up option than Nilsson and would add a little NHL experience to the goalie position

And that's all it is, is speculation. There is no rumor out there, the guy is speculating because Nabby got hurt, nothing else.

Poor man's MAB? Yeesh that is harsh. Usually you say poor man's when talking about a good player. Like Franz Nielsen is a poor man's Datysuk.

But for MAB? Ouch. I feel like a couple more layers and you are at me. Like, I'm the poor man's poor man's poor man's poor man's MAB.

I see alot of hate for LaBarbera, but I'd love to snag him.

I think he can be a better goalie than the numbers he had with the Oilers. They are just a really bad team. I think he could improve here.

No stay far away from that. He is brutal, makes Nabby look like a vezina goalie. I would be more comfortable with Nilsson/Poulin than LaBarbera.

very true.

didn't see much "speculation" about Vanek to the NYI.

I think we'll know when we know.
Not a twitter-second sooner.

Yuck. I saw him play for LA. I'd rather roll the dice with Nilsson because the guy gives up lame goals far too often.

LaBarbera has been terrible for a long time. I'd rather have Nabby with a Ricky-style bionic lower half than LaBarbera, and Nabby sucks now.

I don't think I saw this mentioned. But with Nilsson up, it is inevitable that we are going to have Nielsen, Nelson, Nilsson in one game. I'm going to have that Butchisms cued up.

When that happens, it will inevitably end up with them all having the name Nelson. And hilarity will ensue.
