If you wish to talk about non-Ranger FA signings, please do it here. Or on the FA/Trade Rumors Board.

This thread is for signings, not predictions, projections or the like.

Thanks.

Good signings by FLA. Both can score goals...though both are kinda old and injury prone.

IGINLA RUMOR-3 YEARS 6-6.5 MIllion...The BAR HAS BEEN SET. HERE WE GO. This is what everyone is waiting for... Suddenly Thornton at 5-5.5 makes a little more sense.

Sure Thorton @ 5-5.5 would make more sense. The problem is that he is not going to agree to that amount. Rest assured that if Iggy gets 6.5/per year, then it will take at least the same amount for Thorton, if not more. If Iggy is setting the bar for top liners at 6.5, then the market will only be similar or more.

well if he's setting the bar wouldn't that also set the mark for guys who go below him? how many guys are worth more than iggy? you could probably count them on one hand. everyone else should sign for less...unless teams get desperate or stupid.

Not too worried about Mess...

not sure who he'd be blocking in the organization as I'm not real high on NYR center prospects, and do not know of others out there that'll likely sign for a year contract.

"Good signings by FLA. Both can score goals...though both are kinda old and injury prone."

"Good solid vets to help with the young guys. Hopefully Sather is taking note."

Yeah. I hope Sather realized those are stupid signings by Florida. What a waste of money. Sorry but old players who can't produce at a high level don't help younger guys. What they do is take up roster spots. Neither Gary Roberts and Joe Nieuwendyk has any ability to make young players better. Much like Rucinsky or Cassels don't.


I think people need to get off the "signing role players will help our kids garbage". It won't. We have a ton of role players in this system and those kids don't really need vets to help them. There game is simple with low expectations. What we need is big talent to help Balej, Jessiman, Dawes and Immonen if he signs, make the team and help them put up points in the NHL. Even with 4 big name, more expensive vets there will be 10-14 spots for kids and no payroll because those guys get paid next to nothing

Just because you don't agree with he signings doesn't make them "stupid". You need to learn this.

Roberts and Niew

While those signings look like two old washed up players, don't forget that Roberts basically made O'Neill a player. O'Neill was decent then he started following Robert's work ethic and professionalism. After Roberts left he was not as good.

Niewendyk is a winner, plain and simple.

That said, I'm still glad they are not Rangers.

Add one forward to the Flyers

Jon Sim signs with the Flyers...OK, it's minor, but that's all I got.

$4.5 million for Foote and $4 million for Aucoin aren't horrible numbers (for the players). Glad to see some teams go out there and begin to set some bars for signing.

Bye Bye LaBarberra

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with unrestricted free agent goaltender Jason LaBarbera, Kings Senior Vice President/General Manager Dave Taylor announced today. Per club policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.

LaBarbera, 25, played in 53 games this past season with the Hartford Wolf Pack, the New York Rangers’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate. With the Wolf Pack, the 6-3, 224-pound native of Prince George, British Columbia, had a 31-16-2 record, six shutouts, a 1.84 goals-against-average (GAA) and a .934 save percentage. LaBarbera’s GAA ranked second amongst all AHL netminders, his save-percentage ranked third, his win total was seventh and his shutouts were tied for eighth best.

“We like Jason’s game quite a bit and look forward to him playing an integral role with the Kings this year,” said Taylor. “Having added another promising goaltender in Mathieu Garon last summer, and watching him play and continue to develop with our AHL club this past season in Manchester, we like the fact that we have a couple of solid, young goaltenders who should continue to grow and prosper with the Kings.”

LaBarbera has also played in five career NHL games, all with the Rangers. During the 2003-04 season he posted a 1-2-0 record and a 4.85 GAA in four games. He also had an assist. In 2000-01, he made his NHL debut and played in one game on October 14, 2000, at Pittsburgh.

Originally selected by the Rangers in the third-round (66th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, LaBarbera in 2003-04 with Hartford played in 59 games had a 34-9-9 record, a 1.59 GAA (second best in the AHL) and a .936 save-percentage (tied for third best). His 34 wins and 13 shutouts led the AHL. In 1997-98 helped the Portland Winterhawks (Western Hockey League) capture the Memorial Cup with an 18-4-0 record and a 3.31 GAA average in 23 contests.
