Wonder when we will see a Chaisson signing 

I thought we may have seen it yesterday. He might be trying for more than minimum. I'd be fine with 1 x 1 mil. Any more and we can look elsewhere, and really can't afford it anyway.

I was kinda not so pumped on him lol but if he just stands in front of the net on the PP it’s worth it. Something we’ve been lacking for years

yup we have. I like him on PP2 for that. With him and Pods going hard to the net it should generate a lot of fun times. Maybe we can see Smith flopping like a salmon again.

I've been seeing that every time I've watched that gutless diver play over his disgrace of a career.  I'd rather see one of our guys give him a real injury so the rest of his teammates  see what happens to cowards with zero respect for the game.

I think everyone forgets how bad he is defensively.  A huge liability, even if he scores 15 goals a year.

I don't think there's anything wrong with a powerplay specialist, since having someone chip in an extra goal vs. not having it could mean the difference between 0, 1 and 2 points on any given night.  Of course it's great to have all round contributors but I'd take Neal on a hot streak over some other two-way winger who's nothing more than a crasher and banger but on whose stick the play comes to die more often than not (or at least dress him as 13th man).

don't worry, Granny Smith will blow a groin sooner than later. EDM has to overplay him or go with their 4 million dollar AHL'r.
