Not exactly the former Blue Jacket I was hoping they'd go for, but he was a good guy in the CBJ locker room. Perhaps that will carry over to the Pens.

I once held out hope for him, but he's not a very useful player unfortunately. I'm not sure what he's supposed to be, but he's not very good at it. He means well. He once scored a bunch of goals on the Isles. But he's been a fourth liner ever since.

More on him later.

I'm not going to lose sleep over a 700k signing, but I cannot see him being any good. Perhaps there is value on having veterans play your fourth line instead of AHL'ers, but what that is I'm unaware.

He cant be any worse than Pyatt on the 4th line. I am fine with this.

I don't think he's as bad as people think he is.

But I don't think he's that good either. He's a 4th liner. They're not supposed to be OMG good. He goes out and does his job every night.

Yeah, as a fourth-liner, he's fine. But I just checked and he doesn't PK, so that lessens his value.

at 700k, he's going to be a fine addition to this roster.

Definitely not smart enough for that.

Rather have Comeau for 1 year at $700 then Vitale at 3 years for $1.1MM....

24 goals in 2010-2011.

Looks to me like he will be Geno's other winger.

Remember that time in the playoffs that he took a stupid roughing penalty, got out of the box, and took a stupid tripping penalty within 10 seconds? Good times.

We could get Tyler Kennedy to play the other side and completely alienate Geno from Penguins and likely the game of hockey itself.

1 year at 700k for a fourth liner. Better than anybody on line 4 last year. I'll take it.

Fine. Ziggy Palffy it is, then.

197 hits in 61 games last year, I'l take that for 4th line for 0.7M per year :)

This is unquestionably an upgrade to the bottom six at the bare minimum cost and term.

Seems like a pretty low-risk / high-reward sorta move. At worst, we've wasted $700k. At best, he finds his stride again and is a valuable member of our club.
