Re-sign Bitz ?

219 posts in this topic

We already did. He's no longer with the club.

Maybe we could re-sign him?

I think he wants a one way deal while we want him to sign a two way deal. Just my guess. Or maybe just saving cap space for Doan.

meh, I don't think we need a big guy to police, Bieksa and Kassian are more than capable of handling any retaliations, they just need to step up. Bitz' 1 fight was unimpressive, outside his pairing with the twins he was kind of a plug. It's about time our players stopped asking to settle things and just did it without warning.

I wouldn't say that he would stop Marchand, Keith, and Brown from doing that crap but yeah resign Bitz.

like i said i think its re-sign Bitz and add one super thug .

really enjoyed what Matt Carkner did to Boyle as an answer for trying to intimidate Karlsson.

just skated up to him and started swinging, we need that in the lineup.

a 6'5 Rick Rypien.

Bieksa watched Marchand speed bag Sedin, Bieksa shouldn't be our enforcer. Plays too many minutes.

Kassian ? too young for TOPCOP role. maybe in 2-3 years.

but i do agree, its high time this team fought for each other.

Agreed, but re-signing Patti and looks like Weise...don't think there is a spot....although I think Bitz>>Weise>Patti.

<_<; OP agreed, I'd rather have him in the lineup than Raymond (who may have more upside but doesn't make enough of an impact)

Twins - Booth

Burr - Kes - Hansen

Higgins - Lapierre - Kassian

Weise - Manny - Bitz

(the right side could look like that, dependent upon whether an upgrade is obtained in the Top 6 so Hansen could stay on the 3rd, or more optimistically Kassian can step up)

Hopefully a two-way contract with high AHL play.

Weise-Lappiere-Kassian

Definitely resign him, it's not like resigning one of your grinders is a huge risk. We didn't see much of him last year, but when we did he played well. I say give him a shot, next year hopefully he can stay healthy and earn a spot on the 4th line.
