A cheaper depth signing, a good faceoff guy to replace Mitchell's contributions for only $700,000 a year.

He might have been signed to take Anisimov's spot at center---as we now have Richards,Stepan,Boyle,Halpern up the middle.

Or perhaps Anisimov moves up to take Stepan's spot, and Step is part of a deal???

This signing def gets u thinking

I am hoping Boyle moves to wing rather then moving up to 3rd line center. I wouldnt mind seeing Rupp traded now that we have Asham.

Kreider Step Cally
Dubi AA Pyatt
Boyle Halp Ash

4th line gets better and Halpern is great at faceoffs.

Love the signing. Vet leader with the best faceoff percentage on our team. Def should help on the Pk with Faceoffs, and maybe in a second PP guy for the draw in the zone.

Good signing for us. Halpern is a very good face off man and can put the puck in the net too. An upgrade, albeit older, from Mitchell.

So far,

Prust for Ashom = downgrade; saved $1.5mm cap space
Mitchell for Halpern = upgrade; saved $400k cap space
Pyatt for Fedetenko = upgrade; saved $200k cap space

Net/net = marginally better players, overall, on ice with added $2.1mm cap space. Decent work by Sather. The extra $2.1mm can be used to further improve the club.

Agree Redfish. I just hate asham but prust is not worth as much as he got.

Asham's a huuuge downgrade. Prust could actually play hocky and fill a role. Asham probably isn't an every night player. I'm not sure if Halpern's an upgrade. He'll win some face-offs but after that he's no more useful than Mitchell. Pyatt and Fedotenko's probably close. I'm not crazy about what we've done. We've added a bunch of ****** players so I'll wait to see what he does after this.

Prust's play was vastly overrated. 2 years ago he was very good. Last year, he was not impressive.
