Brad Staubitz signed to a 2 year deal

http://ducks.ocregister.com/2012/07/...r-deal/111878/

Our new enforcer. Capgeek reports 2 years 0.6375 M.


IMO, decent middleweight.

Meh, ok signing as a 13th forward. He's a huge downgrade from Parros as far as hockey skills go but he should do a better job of actually standing up for teammates.

Yeah my thoughts are pretty much this. Worse player, equivalent fighter (despite only being size of a middle), better "enforcer."

Hes the only player in Habs history to be in a fight without actually having had any ice time. Think its when Ryan Malone went after Emelin and Staubitz got into it from the bench with Malone. The guy definitely will rush to help teammates and will just toss them. Liked him, good luck Brad, I think Duck fans will like him.

And yet at the same time BGL is willing to take League minimum, AND play whatever minutes management needs from him...just to get back into the League. We need someone willing and able to knock the loving **** out of whomever we need the living **** knocked out of. Staubitz is NOT that guy.

Solid signing.We needed a cheap enforcer,who has no problem sitting in the box for half the season.Should also be a good team guy.

Hope people give him a fair chance.Parros was liked for his personality and commuinty work,but on the ice he was replaceable.

George Laraque these days is suffering from the exact same problem as George Parros, which is that he doesn't get knock the living anything out of anyone. The number of non-staged fights (the ones that actually mean something) he's been in is just ridiculously low. Other players, even when they have just run a guy, don't line up with that type of player. They have no reason to, so they don't. If he still knocks them down, they have not only just run a guy, but end up with a huge powerplay (or at least with even strength, if the running had been called). That's the opposite of a deterrent, it's an invitation to run guys and then rake in the reward. With Staubitz, there's at least a decent chance that a guy from the other team will think about going. In today's game and leauge, he's way less useless than BGL. I agree that there's something wrong with some of that, but it's just the way it is.

I like this signing because the ducks needed someone who was physical that didn't mind seeing a lot of pressbox like Parros did.

The fan base has become softer than the team, went from winning a cup with Parros May and Thornton to wanting the middleweight enforcer scratched half the season

In today's NHL enforcers don't play every game unless you can play hockey. We just have to get use to it.

Team toughness is the key...

Would love to have Thornton back. He's a useful player. May was a decent player at his time, as well. Carrying a heavyweight enforcer, however, through the lineup that doesn't get to fight anything but a dumb staged event is kind of the opposite of being a tough team. It's just a dead weight these days. If we can get a useful tough player on the team, I don't hear anyone arguing against that. Just having a heavyweight enforcer doesn't make a team any less soft.

You're right. Staubitz is OK as a Parros replacement, but who replaces May and Thornton? Cogs? Please.

We need someone who lays the body. We also could use a Marchant, 4th line guy who can kill penalties.

Also a Kunitz for the upper lines. Moderately skilled, hits, does the dirty work.

Yeah, I'm sure Staubitz has played 200+ games over the last 4 years because of his sniping skills... He may not be an enforcer that you like, but he's defenitely an enforcer. If Burke made this signing you would have no complaints.

Staubitz is a middleweight enforcer, don't be silly. There aren't any players out there who are good players AND heavyweights who are available.

It doesn't matter what you want or what the fans want, it matters what the coach wants. Which is three functional lines and a 4th line that can be trusted for more than 3-5 minutes per game. Parros can't play 10 minutes per game, he's worse than the players on most teams' 4th lines and it's a fire drill when other teams get their higher lines out against him.

The team needs tough 4th liners who can actually play hockey. Not too many around, and even fewer available, and fewer yet interested in a 4th line salary at OC cost of living. That's reality.

We have enforcer and in team toughness we have to get better and in first day of free agency there was improvement... and there is still time to the beginning of the season (when ever that might be).

All teams have middleweights so why would Staubitz even be scratched unless you think he can handle a heavyweight

We have some other more important issues with this team to worry about than the level of our enforcer. If Staubitz is fail and it looks like there is need for a HW...then you get some bigger HW during the season.

Plus I'd really like to see a list with all the teams in NHL with true heavy weights in their lineup and about how many games they play during the season.

Christ man, I love your love of tough hockey, but are you for real 90% of the time?

Move on. Give it up.

Even IF enforcers were still needed on teams, Parros would have been a terrible choice. Beleskey did a better job of sticking up for teammates than he did the past season or two.

Ya Parros was not an enforcer, he was a fighter. Big difference.

What heavyweights? The Pacific pretty much doesn't have any, Westgarth stays in the press box. And if there's no heavyweight dressed, these days the other team typically doesn't dress one either. I don't have enough of an opinion on Staubitz to comment intelligently on him, but Parros wasn't good enough to stay on the ice as a player and wasn't mean enough to deter anyone. I imagine that Allen and Souray are meant to provide deterrence, they hope DSP will go back to hitting, and Beleskey is the best returning player at actually sticking up for the team. Could be better, could be worse. There are still plenty of 4th line scrubs out there they can sign.
