I liked Bryce, solid ahler- but he was never going to be anything more than an 8th or 9th defenseman on our depth chart.

woah, what a monster. no way this guy is playing in the NHL. Let the Hartford staff get him up to speed on the system and work on his skating. If they were able to improve on Orr, they'll be able to do something with this guy. Teach him to crash the net and screen the goalie. Nothing moves the Blob!

What a waste....goons are a dime a dozen ....can't we just sign one...Where's Dylan Flatt?

He is very poised with the puck and got a overall serviceable skill level. His big thing though is his poise.

He could very well have been a 6th D in the NHL in this point if it weren't for injury's. He have also showed some nerves every time he have gotten a shot in the NHL.

I like Lampman, but am not sad to see him go. He got limited upside.

Nice to get Fritz. I think he is more of a backup for Lessard then Orr. Allot of HFD guys can handle themselfs, but its very nice to have goon on the ice just in case things gets out of hand. HFD always seems to be the punishing team when I watch, much of it thanks of the muscle they always got.

I mean, in the NHL there is a win-loose ratio in icing a goon, you loose some in skill and pts but gain protection. In the AHL all that really matters is developing, what you loose in a bit of skill in the end don't hurt you at all.

This guy is quite possibly the worst player I've ever seen in a professional game. The way he skates, he makes Colton Orr look like Yvan Cournoyer.

He almost seems out of proportion against the guys he's fighting. Like two action figures that aren't on the same scale.

Having said that, I don't have a problem with the move.

Lampman is a call-up kind of guy and at 25 was going slide further down the depth chart as our prospects become ready and able. I always liked Lampman but he never quite developed as I had hoped and that injury he had the year he made the team out of camp kind of ended any chances of him making it here.

Fritz is pretty terrible as I've seen the guy "play" countless times but he's always entertaining to watch and he'll fight often.

That's funny, LOL.

Is Colton really that bad a skater? In those 15 straight games he played during our end of season run, he looked like he was at least keeping up witht the play. Heck he was even making some good plays. I think his skating has improved from when we got him.

I'll bet Shoeny and his staff of task masters will get this guy skating better.

You're assuming the Bolts were willing to give up a draft pick.

Orr never played in Hartford, he was/is a Renney reclamation project. This guy will probably never see the NHL--except on Center Ice.

agreed. Baranka takes his spot now as the call up guy. Sauer is the up and comer this season. Sanguinetti next year, so Baranka definitely has to push hard to beat out those two on the depth chart and not earn, but grab a roster spot in a blinding submission hold or he'll never make in the bigs (with us).

They have the same staff so I'm sure they can get this goon skating better. And from what I've been reading, I'd totally agree that he is not going to see NHL ice. I was just commenting that our staff can get him skating better. One funny thing to note though is that in the AHL, Fritz's best season was 6-5-11 in 69 games two seasons ago. Orr's best season was 1-6-7 in 61 games back in 2004-2005. He out scored Orr 6x! well maybe not that funny. At the very least, let's hope Schoey ups his value.

Good move.

Lampman has no chance at cracking the Rangers line up and with him being 24, it was a good heart move by sather to give Lampman a chance at cracking another team.

Also opens up the door for Sather to deal Orr or Hollwood if anything comes up or if one of them gets injured.

Another good move by Sather. He's really impressed me the past few seasons. This is the man I thought we were getting when he signed with us.

Barank's real issue is health. Every time he strings together some games and really starts moving forward he gets hurt. Then his momentumn is off and it takes him a while to get into a groove again. That's what has really hurt him the last two seasons. This is a big season for him IMO.

Agree. Renney believes that Orr can become a Brashear type. Orr really needs to work on his skating. Send him to whoever fixed Jason Ward.

This move is solely to protect our assets in Hartford. It would be nice to call him up for games against NJ just to kick Janssen's you know what.

I was never impressed with Lampman over the past few seasons(career AHLer, Liffiton is the next in line) so i'm glad we got anything in return for him. Sure he's just a goon but he'll bring some more veteran leadership to the team (yeah yeah, only 26, but that's a lot more experience at the AHL level then most of our players down there going into their first, 2nd, or 3rd pro seasons).


Very minor trade. So does this mean Lessard is gone? Or are we keeping 3 big time goons (Purinton in there as well).
