lol well looks like if he is not claimed (which I do not think he will be) he will more than likely sent to Hartford. He put up really good numbers in the AHL in his career and should give Hartford some veteran leadership for their playoff run.
Yeah, Krog is and has always been a true career AHL'er. He's just not NHL material.
I am absolutely praying to the almighty powers Jason Krog is sent down to Hartford.
That's another body down there though, which is not a problem right now, but as the Junior/College season starts to wind down, there could be a log-jam of forwards on the team for the end of the season/playoffs in Pyatt, Russell, Dupont, Olver, Hillier, Roche, Ryan and Hunter (I don't think all of these guys will get ATO's or contracts but probably 3 or 4 will)
1. Salary - Berard's contract is only $2.5 mill...which means we'll owe him less than $1 mill for rest of this season.
2. History - Berard started his career with the New York Islanders. I think that would give him some extra motivation for when we play the Islanders 4 more times this season.
3. Berard's play - Sure, he is not great on defense. Yet, if used properly, he can help us. We can use him as a powerplay specialist who will play mostly the powerplay...while maybe playing 5-10 minutes 5 on 5 on our 3rd D pairing.
I would take a chance on him. We can get him off waivers without giving up anyone, which is nice. If he ends up playing like Ozolinsh, then we simply sit him.
anyone else a little nervous by the lack of moves so far. I have a strange feeling that either nothing will happen, or Lundqvist will go to some random team. Obviously a exaguration but i'm a little weary(sp)
