Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced Tuesday the signing of forward Mathieu Darche to a one-year contract (2010-11). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed
How can financial argeement be not disclosed in the salary cap era ?
One-way @ $550,000 is not that bad. At that price, I'm sure management still won't have an issue sending him to Hamilton if other players become more valuable. If he stays up, he's a serviceable 4th liner/13th forward.
I'm happy with that signing. He's alright on the 4th line, you know he's gonna give his 100% every night.
Don't forget he had 10 points in 30 games this year. Not bad for a grinder.
He's absolutely awful. He keeps forgetting he is what he is: a grinder. I just cringe every single time I see him cross the blueline, and then, take the complicated, low-percentage option instead of just keep pushing and "dump-and-chase"'ing. He's a liability in the defensive end of the ice. I hope to god they don't intend to give him an NHL spot. One more season of Darche and Pyatt being used as journeymen top-sixers, and we might not even watch hockey next spring.
