    I thought LA might go after him when Buffalo said they weren't able to sign him.

    Nice add.

    His numbers are amazing . Is it true he's a blue chip goalie prospect ? Some people keep mentioning him as a blue chip prospect.

    I didn't think much of it at first, I just thought he was a prospect that Buffalo let go. But a fairly highly regarded college goalie that chose to go free agent instead of signing with Buffalo? That seems like a nice addition.

    I might stop short of labeling him (or any goalie) as a blue chipper. Notre Dame plays a very defensive system. Petersen's predecessor was Steve Summerhays who put up .923 in his senior year but has been in the ECHL since.

    Petersen is certainly worth a contract, but it's probably a better mindset to let him surprise you rather than get your hopes too high before he faces a single shot in the AHL (ie, Ottawa and Matt O'Connor).

    This should be done with every prospect, outside of a very select few.

    So from what I'm reading, he's only saying that he will sign on July 1st, meaning he isn't signed or anything yet. So why get excited? What if he decides not to sign with us. I don't think that will happen, but you just never know.

    That thread on the Sabres board could be used to melt the 25 feet of ****ing snow they'll get this winter.

    Watched him play a few times over the years since NBCSN shows a bunch of Notre Dame hockey games (possibly due to their agreement with the football team). As much as I'd like to pretend like I could give a scouting report, it's tough for me to pick up too many differences between goalies (and heck, NHL teams only have sporadic success themselves). I was really high on Sam Brittain a couple years ago and he's been bouncing back between the AHL/ECHL.

    I'm thinking his NCAA playing career helps more than just being a HHoF'er. He's able to relate to them and the same level because he was once a young collegiate athlete aiming to become and NHL player.

    Hope he plays in Ontario this year. He could get a job on Worthington Ford commercials- Go See Cal!

    I know nothing about this guy except what I've read today, but its a good signing.

    Zatkoff will be in Manchester, if not waived entirely.

    Zatkoff will be in Ontario, with Petersen. Campbell will be in the NHL.

    I'd call the Sabres a lottery team, but they couldn't even do that right.

    Folks, I got an entire lot of ***** cows down here and the state of California won't let me sell them new! These ***** cows have only been ridden a few times, and as far as I'm concerned I'd ride them, and Lord knows you'd agree with me if you saw my old ***** cow back at home, but law says they can't be sold as new. Come on down and get yourself a good deal on some ***** cows! And for the little ones we have ***** calves in the showroom!

    Aren't you glad you finally admitted it? Now you know that pretty much every kid in SoCal thought and sang the same thing. Hell, I was like 15 when I finally figured out that it wasn't ***** cow.
