Great. the Soundtigers can use a veteran to help lead all the kiddies down there. I hope like hell he never sees the NHL ice though.

Great if it's a depth/ AHL signing.
I hope we are done with the retreads

Just in case Cespedes opts out of his contr......OOOPS...wrong one.

Just in case Strome doesn't sign.

Seriously, it's fine. They need to fill out an AHL roster too.

Bridgeport could definitely use him.

EDIT: Wow. I know his game isn't all about stats, but his stats everywhere but his senior year at BC are awful.

If we're bringing anyone else in it should be Versteeg. Gionta is awful.

Yea, jump to conclusions based on a firggin' PTO. A lot of teams are bringing in PTOs simply to fill holes at camp with players over at the World Cup. Chicago has 12 PTOs. OH NO! The Kings have BizNasty and Devin Setoguchi. Not to mention we need to fill Bridgeport with veterans.

Or, let this fill the ridiculous preconceived narrative that permeates everywhere that everything this team does is a joke.

Edit: Changed Olympics to World Cup

PTOs are like free lottery tickets. This is nothing to get worked up about. It is likely he won't make it a month on try out so, don't quit sleeping...

They need NHL vets to fit the roster requirement. Gionta's best case scenario is catching on Bport's 3rd line

He's just here to fill out the roster. I believe you need a certain number of NHL vets for the spit squad games. I'd put the odds of him making the roster at slim to none. I hope I'm right.

Seriously, what is it with these midget forwards and this team? Aucoin got a legit shot to play to start, Coma Chef (wow did he suck) got 1st line duty for 10+ games, and now Gionta. Of course Capuano will give him every chance in hell to play so he can sit the kids. Watch as Gionta gets primo ice time in the preseason as Barzal sits on his ass and then is sent back to Seattle. 'We didn't feel he was ready' during his 10 minutes of ice time the entire preseason.

I hope you're right too. If Gionta being around costs us a chance to get a real look at any of the kids, I'm going to be pissed. He should be a roster filler and camp body, anything more and it'll be another head scratching roster decision from this ****ing coaching staff.

Aucoin got a shot because we had absolutely zero depth going into the season. That was also when we claimed Finley, Strait, and Hickey.

I did forget about the NHL veteran rule in preseason.

Makes sense now.

At best, he's a top six guy in Bridgeport.
