Deacent pick-up for NJ.
Played for Hynes before ?
Dang...the Pens NHL line-up is too deep for Dea right now, but when injuries come (and the Pens will have injuries) Dea would have been a decent call up. Oh well...such is life.
Could be a decent pickup for the Devils. He's got the talent to play at the NHL level, but I don't see him ever lighting it up. He's more in line with the Scott Wilson, Tom Kuhnhackl, Josh Archibald types we have produced out of the farm lately. Would have gotten a handful of games as an injury callup and not looked out of place, but wasn't in the long term plans for the Pens.
I got to be honest I thought he be a nice pick up for the devils and I'm not sure if he played for Hynes before but good for Devils I guess.
He’s been with the Baby Pens for four years now and never cemented a position with the big club. Was probably best for him to move on and try other opportunities.
He has some skill, but is the kind of guy that looks pretty, but doesn’t get a whole lot done.
I don’t like the pick up. Reminds me too much of the D.E.A.
I need to follow hockey more, this offseason there are so many names I’ve never heard before
I agree ... he's good organizational depth, but not earth moving for either organization.
hes a solid player, nj will be happy
Shero has a habit of taking guys like this - Noesen, Gibbons, Mueller - and turning them into decent NHL players.
I'm not exactly sure where he fits on the depth chart. Is he an upgrade over Boyle, Coleman, Noesen, or Quenneville?
At this point JR should be able to dump any bad contracts on waivers for Shero to claim.
I don't really know anything about him.
The most disappointing part of this is that Dea is the most plug-and-playable RHS center in the organization. Well, was...
Just rounding out the forward group, not sure Dea will displace anybody immediately other than Kevin Rooney who might have been in line to the 13/14th forward. Devils had an oddly low number of one way contracts, so I figured we might be in the market for somebody especially after guys like Joey Anderson and Nick Lappin were sent to the AHL.
If I had to guess on the roster (once they return from Europe and don't get the benefit of the expanded roster):
Seems like a depth player more than anything else. Wishing him all the best with the Devils.
Confirmed he's a NARC!
For those interested, this cost New Jersey $41,250, paid to Pittsburgh and not counted against the cap.
It's okay jori your flyers never picked him up
He's a fringe player. The kinda guy that fans will see for a few games and think they've found something then by the end of the year they realize he's a guy that will always be a 4A kind of guy.
He most likely is taking Staffords roster spot and I am ok with that.
Pretty meh player. Could do worse as a 13th/14th forward though.
Probably not someone you want to see on your NHL roster regularly. I wish him the best and would love for him to prove me wrong!
would prefer to let one of the kids get a shot
