Wow those are great. Never seen them before
Anyone remember this?
and then he got pounded by peluso
There are many reason why I hate Sbisa, that's one, the other one was his cheesy moustache, he should be playing with the Leafs
Mark Stuart 2.0? (Or is it 3.0?)
Seriously now, I'll wait to see him play, and how many games he gets in, before judging him.
Does any other team make as many bad waiver wire pickups? Brett MacLean and Ben Maxwell were merely portents of the doom to come.
We have just cause to get worked up.
Ho-Sang would be a lot better option that Bourque.
Man Peluso could chuck em , not much else but boy he could sure fight .
Ho-sang has bigger issues.
I'll stand by my position. After year 3 in the NCAA you are basically sending one of your top defenseman prospects to UFA status if they don't sign and their agent is well aware of this. IMO discussions will be around role and usage with performance bonuses to match to get him under contract. Samberg will never see the AHL unless he is a total bust.
It's like free day in Winnipeg, Chevy knows that old BBQ is junk, but he just can not help himself.
I believe the term is rag-tag.
They are still 1 year away from being able to go to UFA status and even then the drafting team retains substantial advantages. You are describing year 3 as though it was already year 4.
Of course he will get performance bonuses. And he will get top dollar ELC as well. I don't for 1 minute believe the Jets, or any other team promises an NHL job to an unproven player signing his first contract. I don't believe they negotiate role and usage when they haven't even made the team yet. Samberg may or may not ever see the AHL, but it won't be written into his contract and it won't be any unwritten promise either.
Ok , that's funny . It always amazing to me some of the stuff people put out and even more amazing stuff people actually take .
How many teams make good ones? Players go on waivers for a reason.
Exactly. Which is why the best course of action typically is not make a waiver wire pickup at all.
Isn't that why you are supposed to have depth in the AHL? Sure, right now it seems like a parade to the IR list. But I don't think injury replacement can explain all of Chevy's pickups over the years.
Your optimism is commendable but this looks like a bottom 5-7 team, to me.
OK, but that still doesn't get much of a chance at Lafreniere or Byfield.
BTW, we currently sit in the 11th draft lottery spot.
Thankfully we’ve been getting worse as the year goes on
The Laf/Byfield comment was mostly tongue in cheek, but I definitely do see it as a realistic scenario.
We do have a real shot at a good pick this year though.
A good pick, yes. And as long as there is a lottery, we have a chance at Laf and Byfield, but it is pretty slim. A couple of the teams currently behind us will pass us. But a couple that are currently ahead will probably finish below us.
In the same number of games, Oilers have a 7 point lead on us. We might not be able to make up 7 pts. Think about that for a while. Or maybe it would be better to not think about that.
Niku is still rehabbing, Stanley is hurt. Beaulieu is on IR. That's 3 options one month in, not available. Dahlstrom was an acquisition that cost nothing. Sbisa at least keeps the depth at 8 NHL defensemen, and the Jets have to really be mulling what to do with Heinola.
I look at it this way, if it doesn't work out you have acquired an asset, Sbisa could get you a 3rd or 4th rd pick at the deadline, with some steady play.
I'm glad our management and scouting department are always working to find players to fill the roster, instead of sitting idle.
Because he’s too good for the AHL and wants to play in the NHL?
