Pity he's not a faster skater. Even so, I'd still rate him as almost even with Weise skill wise and a much better fighter (Weise must be among the league leaders in getting worked).

Desbiens on 4th along with Doan and Kassian in the top 9 (at the expense of Raymond) would do wonders for our toughness quotient and alleged lack of willingness to drop the mitts and just yap.

How about he just waits until he has something intelligent to say? In which case it could be years before # 10,000.

It is sad that this thread has 5 pages. Slow offseason anyone?

I liked Desbiens before, though he didn't show a whole lot during the season. I hope he does better this time around.

Saw the little bugger here in Cowtown live and remember saying to my friends, were the hell was that in Vancouver?

he is another guy who could have been a legit heavy, instead we give this chump another go at it.

I'm praying Volpatti's right hand wasn't a fluke last year. So many toughguy's available, why Gillis?
RIP RYP

He got worked in their rematch. Volpatti is a good fighter but he is not a heavy who will take on other tough heavy weights. At least desbiens takes on guys like Orr and jackman, but ya I was hoping we could get a legit enforcer as well. It's crazy to think we could of picked up Orr or macintyre at a discount last year.
