Yeah... Tim Brent has played more than 2 games in the NHL TWICE in his career. 15 games with Ducks ('06/'07), 79 with Toronto last year.

If Tim Brent plays for the Canes the way he did killing penalties against the Canes last year then this is a great signing. If I recall he singhandedly blocked shots in a 5v3 Canes PP and was simply all over the place. Then again, it was a Canes PP :)

I like this signing.

Well, Brent is a very underwhelming signing for 4th line center. Would rather have seen Carter back. Hope he can win faceoffs.

Sounds like Jagr chased the money. He and Lavi should be water and oil in a couple months, should be interesting. Guess Cole won't end up there (still think he'll be back here).

PHX loses Jovanovski, gets Smith from TB. Sad that, will miss seeing him flop around and misplay the puck.

Boomer on XM points out that JR always surprises us with these signings, wondering how the team can make anything of it, and then the player becomes very serviceable.

We'll see. JR has also had a few misses in this regard, for sure.

I like the Brent signing. Young 4th line center who won over 50% of his FO's last year and kills penalties. Not overly expensive either.

27 isn't that young IMO.

Especially for someone who just broke into the league last year.

Aw come on guys, he was 52% in the circle with around 700 faceoffs, and scored 20 points from the fourth line on a mediocre Toronto squad. And we got him for half the price it would have cost to sign Gordon. That's more dollars to sign a top-6 forward.

This is a good value signing IMO.

Total surprise as I hadn't heard his name mentioned at all.

Heard Konopka wants at least $1M/yr!! Priced himself out of our budget!

Still staying with what I heard about Cole! :)

If not Cole....Leino?

Philly can no longer afford Leino...with handing out 3.3M to Jagr. :coollaugh:

I wonder if Paul Holmgren and Ed Snider have gone crazy?

Well this is odd..the Avs just gave up a 1st and a 2nd for Varlamov, even though its widely reported he's going to the KHL. Maybe they changed his mind?

I think Snider wants one more before he goes. Not sure Holmgren would have given up Richards otherwise.

jagr + bryzgalov - richard - carter = bad idea

WOW! I thought the original deal for Jagr was 2 mil for 1 season. I think even that is overpaying.

That was the offer from Shero & the Pens...they couldn't & wouldn't go higher.

Since Jagr is a former Pen I was willing to take the risk @ 2M for 1 year...But I am so much happier they use that money to keep Tyler Kennedy!!!
