Completely pointless, stupid contract. What the (frank) is going on?
- Cptmjl

No, it's ok. It's just like our 6th entirely-unnecessary long-term, cheap deal for a below-replacement-level player.

The people who can't look far enough ahead to clear the end of their nose will beat the "but it takes up hardly any cap space" drum and will be the same idiots that get angry when Oliver Wahlstrom can't get a roster spot because talentless fuckbags like Mayfield, Pelech, Komarov, Martin, Clutterbuck, Cizikas, and Ross Johnston all need a spot because they make too much money to bury in the AHL.

What makes you think Lou is just going to throw a guy on waivers after signing him to a 4 year contract? What exactly are we expecting to see from Ross Johnston really for the next four years on a one way contract?
- Cptmjl



Well lets see.... If Nelson is going to be signed as Lou has stated and we just signed Kovar... there will have to be at least 1 maybe 2 players waived to play in bridgeport or we will have one full press box full of players doing nothing for a majority of the season if not the whole season depending on injuries

Players you just mentioned take up around 16 million in total cap space.

So Lou is just going to wave a player he just extended during camp? Why sign him to begin with?

I would love to see Wahlstom up and playing right along side of Barzal....maybe just maybe he needs a year or 2 before coming up..worked for Barzal didn't it..kid seems hungry and has a good head on his shoulders...think Bellows and Ho Sang both deserve a shot..and who is to say that they don't win out a spot in camp..maybe just maybe they send down some of these contracts to bridgeport unless you're really worried they get picked up off waivers

I'm sure Trotz stormed into Lou's office and demanded they sign Ross.

So you actually believe that they're signing players to 4 year contracts with the idea that they may send them down during camp?

Wish i had the answer for you but i don't have the slightest clue the mental thoughts of Lou... but we got players playing in bridgeport making more then 500k that are far worse then Ross.. could be a way to fill the seats ...could use some fans with the team we are fielding so far

So he signs players to 4 year contracts and one way deals to send them to Bridgeport. He sure is sneaky nobody is going to see that one coming.

Trotz
"I dont care we need Johnston make sure it's a one way deal I want to be forced to play him for the next four years."

Then you sign them to a one year deal. Never four. It's a dumb move signing an AHL player to a four year one way contract.

No offense but your theory makes about as much sense as signing Ross Johnston to a four year one way deal.

first off don't insult me like that..i can't stand that guy thats why i came here... i am just not going to jump off a cliff because they signed a guy that can easily be waived or push for a spot and someone else can be waived and it won't hurt either way..so what if he gets waived and someone picks him up...

The thing is then why bother signing him. Makes no sense at all. Whose going to be waived?
