Yep. I'm not even a big Sjo fan, but for what he brought (speed, hustle, PK ability, can fill in on the 3rd line) if we had resigned him for 750 K per year I would have been really happy. Instead we get Brashear for almost double that per year? That is pretty disappointing to me.

I hear ya, but I don't think Sjo was gonna drop the gloves to protect Gaborik.

Hard worker, good penalty killer, and he's actually pretty good in shootouts.

Heard all he wanted was 850 in NY but Sather wouldnt give it to him. Sutter offered 750K to calgary and he jumped at it. Im suprised if he was so well loved that Sather wouldnt spend the extra 100K

I've liked Sjostrom ever since he came to the Rangers but I feel that he would have been redundant this year. With Higgins in the fold, his PK spot is covered. He has hands of stone which is why he can't play any higher than the 3rd line. He has no spot on the 4th line with the makeup now. And I'm not sure he would have a spot on the 3rd line and wouldn't score enough to get those minutes.

We will miss you Freddie. We enjoyed having you here.

Freddie was great, and that Montoya trade was worth it. Good luck Freddie.


The only thing now is that we need players to step up their penalty killing now that freddie and betts are gone....

Then spend the mill on Orr. Get both Sjo and Orr for 1.75 mill a year, rather than Brashear at 1.4 mill. And, don't give me the garbage about Brashear can actually play. He had what, 5 points last year?

Good luck freddie! You'll be missed but I think it's best we both go our seperate ways. Enjoy him Calgary, he's a very solid player as long as you temper your expectations.

How the hell did we drop Shoe and sign Asshear for 1.3 million? I'm clueless.

Sjöström was valuable, Brashear is not.

Good luck Shoe - Hope Higgins steps it up. Brashear at 1.4m is a joke - I would have taken Ian Laperriere instead.

I liked Freddy, shame we didn't want to bring him back especially since he's basically making nothing. Good luck Sjo!
