Andrej Sustr and Lightning agree to terms (2 year ELC)

6'8" college UFA d-man could sign in Tampa!!! Great news and will be a bright future with Hedman and Sustr manning the blue line for many years to come!!! Great pick up by Steve Yzerman!

What are the chances he can sign DeKeyser from Western Michigan as well???

This could be a quick rebuild for the Bolts!

TB could have a shot in the draft for Drouin too!!!

Did he sign him or not? You first say that he could sign in Tampa but then say great pickup by Yzerman?

You got me so excited that Yzerman had signed him.

He hasn't signed anywhere yet.

College UFA 6-foot-8 D Andrej Sustr will cull list of 20 to 25 interested NHL teams tomorrow and Friday, likely to sign by weekend.
Personally I don't think we sign him. If we wanted him, we would have signed him this past summer.


I edited the title to make it a little more clear.

I like him, but he seems very risky.

To sign last summer he would have had to leave college, he wasn't ready to. Plus it isn't as if the Lightning camp is the only one he's been to. He went to the Penguins camp as well and the Rangers camp the year before.

If I recall correctly the only way he would of left college before this current season was only if a team promised him an NHL spot.

Congrats guys.

Šustr isn't NHL ready yet, but I expect he'll get a few games anyway. If he can put his game together then he is going to be a great addition.

Hit or miss with him. Hope for the best but with Yzerman's track record with undrafted free agents I am feeling confident on this one.

I can see him playing in our lineup. Does this mean Lee will be traded?

Cool signing Stevie Y, God knows we need all the defensive help we can get.

Wow, nice. If they offered him NHL minutes right away I think they might spend Gudas back down. Gudas doesn't deserve to go down but the Crunch need some players as we keep calling them up.
Lee might be shopped know but I think Brewer would be more on the market now as he can help a contender.

For as sought-after as Sustr has been, he also comes with a pretty high amount of risk as a prospect. Sustr has very alluring size at 6'8" but still has a lot of work to do to become an NHL-caliber skater, and for a player of his size, he's not all that physical. He does, however, have remarkably soft hands for a player of his size, and is an excellent passer.

Only thing that makes him and Gudas close is the language they speak. Gudas is light years ahead of him and more of what we need on the team than Sustr at this point.

Sustr may get some NHL minutes, but he isn't ready. He needs the AHL time apparently. Too bad he won't be developed by Cooper.

Pretty sure Guy gets to pick what players are on his team and if he chooses Lee over Gudas at this point then he deserves to lose his job.

From all i've read on him thats his big knock, no mean streak, he's often described as a 'finesse' dman. So the standard stick waving we are used to.

Where did I say he was going to pick Lee over Gudas? If SY offered Sustr immediate playing time in the NHL someone needs to sit. It's not gonna be the top 4 and Aulie can't get sent down without going through waivers. We can either go 7D with Gudas and Sustr or send Gudas down for another playoff run.
