TSN lists the top 10 FA Bargains

Postby netwolf on Thu Mar 02, 2006 7:07 pm

Surprisingly, there are no Penguins on this list. :P However, ex-Pens Michal Rozsival (8) and Mikael Samuelsson (4) do make the list.

The top bargain? Yannic Perreault who has 49 points in 58 games to go along with winning 62.7% of his draws while making a scant (by NHL standards) $525,000.

I was one of many that suggested he'd be a good addition this summer. Looks like that was pretty accurate. :)

Samuelsson was brutal when he was in Pittsburgh. Now he has won a gold medal and has a decent shot at the cup.

Damn him.

Remember though, the Pens included him in the deal to move up and get Fleury.

I'll take Fleury.

I wonder how much of his turnaround has to do with the rules. It makes me wonder if Morozov could be an effective player, not that I'm campaigning for his return or anything.

omg if anyone mentioned getting Perreault before this season, how quick they were jumped on.... I can remember plenty of people saying no way... and now he has 49 in 58.

Funny how things work out.

Those of you who said he might be a good fit, don't be so fast to pat yourself on your back yet.

1) The big knock on him wasn't that he wouldn't be effective, its that he becomes complacent and that he doesn't show up in big games.

2) How many teams past over him before Nashville gave him the league minimum? Don't get mad at the Penguins because they didn't sign him.

He'll go from being a hero to nothing if he doesn't show up in the playoffs.

I'm already patting myself on the back, so you're too late. :P

1. I wish the Pens were in a position to have to worry about guiys disappearing in big games. If nothing else that would mean they were contending for a playoff spot.

2. I don't care how many other teams passed on him. This club had a gaping hole at center and they still do. I still can't believe they ever though Pirjeta was a viable option to center a scoring line.
