Can we trade for him? I’ll drive to Boston or Bumphuck Canada to pick his ass up and drive him here free of charge!

He'd fit right in with our annoying, ass-kicking team. Except he may have too much talent for our bunch....

Maybe there's something in the rules that two guys as irritating as him and Clutter can't be on the same team?

Pretty sure he put up decent points in juniors, and I remember him being injured even before training camp or maybe his draft year. The shoulder's been an issue since I can remember.

He did put up decent points in Jrs. But that doesn’t translate to the NHL typically.
Banged up his shoulder in Jrs and then in the AHL BST had another season ending shoulder injury. Once a bad wing always a bad wing unfortunately.

Hey now. It’s not so easy to suck so bad with so much talent. Show some (frank)ing respect for the accomplishment.

No doubt. I would have liked a short term deal, but the term and annual hit was a bit high that Carolina paid imho.

To me de Haan was not worth what Garth up to move up and draft him. I thought de Haan would be a 40-45 point dman with his passing and skating skill. I saw de Haan's first game as an 18 year old and was blow away with how well he passed and skated. de Haan really looked like a Niedermayer type.

I would have paid him looking at our rear guard but that’s water under the bridge now. Sure hope Trotz has these guys playing a defense first game or this season could be ugly.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was getting at with the Scott Neidermeyer comp. Good skating, puck mover that got points on the pp. We turn the page, and maybe they pick up a piece or let the young ones battle it out. I hate to lose a year of Barzy;s greatness, but maybe it's best we lose and get a shot at hughes? Or maybe the stars align and somehow this mish mash of players gets us a lottery pick. As someone pointed out, you never know #nyslottery

Edit: lottery playoff spot. Damn beers.

de Haan simply did not live up to the hype. He was not drafted as a Rich Pilon type who had no puck skills at all. Isles traded up possible could have stayed put to draft de Haan. Getting Hughes would be worth having a lousy season, but the odds are not good the Isles would get him. Still think Barry and his coaching skill will get the Isles enough point to miss out.
