    Another one of Stanley's pets gone

    Jamie Tardif signs with the Sabres. I think it's good that he's gone. He's 28, and can score at the AHL level, but likely will never be a regular in the NHL. Make room for the kids to get top 6 minutes.

    Yes - good deal.  Bookboy posted about the glut in Providence right now and the need for playing time for a lot of different guys.  Tardif hardly registers as a prospect any more.

    Good bye and good luck.  Thanks for leaving those top six minutes to someone else.

    Tardiff was never a prospect.  When you sign a five-year AHL veteran to a FA contract, you're not signing him because you intend to develop him and slot him into your top six.  You'd probably have mixed emotions even if that happened because it probably means he's beaten out guys you had bigger investments in who didn't make the most of their talents - and you're probably a lousy team because of it.  Witness PA Parenteau who couldn't get a sniff with Anaheim, Chicago or the Rangers, but broke out because the awful Islanders had no one better - and he's proven to be a pretty decent scorer after 7 years in the AHL.  For every Parenteau, there are 50 Marty St. Pierres or Chris Bourques.

    Tardif was brought in to give the P-Bruins some veteran talent to help get the kids over the hump.  It worked; the P-Bruins had the A's best record and, well, the less said the better about hte playoffs, but they made them.  Now he needs to move on and make room for a real prospect.  End of story.

    Tardif will play with the Sabres and could indeed become another Parenteau....

    PA was 26 when he broke into the NHL I believe. Tardiff is expected to play in the AHL next year, despite the Sabres horrible roster. He's 28. 10 years after he was drafted, he has 2 games in the NHL, 0 points, and a grand total of 9:50 in time on ice with both games combined. He is a minor league hockey player, and will never be anything more. He's averaged .28 goals per game in the AHL, and he's 28. When you're the GM do you plan to pick him up for the first line?

    Sometimes guys just need a legit chance to play.  You never know what will happen.

    All you need to do to win the lottery is buy a ticket.  You can get it 80% right on 95% of these guys 90% of the time.  Margin for error?  Sure.  But it's not huge. 

    I'd also say there's a difference between a guy like Tardif who was drafted but never broke through (with Calgary, no less) and is now bouncing from organization to organization looking for that shot and, say, Cory Conacher who, in his one AHL year, was better than a point/game player.  Tardif's AHL stat line is also telling in a weird way.  Here's his line for his 7 AHL years:

    9-6-15

    17-17-34

    9-9-18

    16-17-33

    27-27-54

    15-15-30

    30-15-45

    Four of seven years, he had exactly the same number of goals and assists.  One additional year, he missed it by a goal.  The other two years are his first AHL year and last year.  Is there any reason to think that 30 goals is anything other than an anomaly?

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    i'm not being smart. you're just wrong. he isn't an NHL quality player. He's proved this. The bruins management is smarter than you, they saw no need to keep him.

    Stanley, you could be right who knows, but the fact is last season the Bruins had lack of depth, not too much like you said and management never viewed him as the solution.

    The year before, they viewed Rolston, Mottau and Zanon as solutions, however.

    Fire the GM!

    Fire all coaches!

    i thought rolston and zanon, for the price they paid, worked out pretty well.

    After winning the Cup, the B's deadline deals were for three bums and they lost in the first round.

    The price wasn't the question.  The overall failure was.

    Meh.  They didn't lose to the Caps because they didn't make better deadline deals.  They lost to the Caps because the core underperformed, Rich Peverley was the leading scorer, and they couldn't break down the Caps' 0-5-1.  And Holtby played well.  He wasn't the second coming of Dryden, but he was solid.

    Besides, they weren't trying to "solve" some huge, burning question.  They were the defending champs.  They had a 102 point season.  They were picking up depth.  It was what it was.  meh.

     Right after pigs and dogs fly. You are not intelligent enough to be the puck collector after warmups. Still funny how bostonfan schooled you. Almost as good as 31 pim's for arguing offsides!
