    I wanted Agostino to go down and help Laval...

    With him and Froese gone, next men up are Belzile, Audette and Evans. Yikes.

    Classic AAAA player but still probably an upgrade as some have pointed out to the current Devils bottom 6 depth. Won’t hurt anything to plug him in for depth.

    Stop claiming our tweener forwards goddammit, Laval's already banged up enough. Agostino is not a difference maker by any means but can fill in for a 4th line role.

    Laval is @ Binghamton Friday and Saturday. Devils need to stay on their winning streak to get back into the thick of the AHL playoff race.

    For those interested, this cost New Jersey $26,250, paid to Montreal and not counted against the cap.​

    Hey Devils fans - Agostino was a favourite of mine this year. A lot of Habs fans don't like him but I actually think he was very effective and I can see him sticking in the NHL as a 4th liner. He does a lot of good things - good on the forecheck, decent skating, and has enough skill to lead the AHL in scoring. Sometimes he forgets he's on the 4th line, but I think Agostino will be a bubble NHLer for a while. Hopefully he pans out for you guys. I'm really bummed the Habs lost him for nothing because with three Forwards claimed this season, the Habs forward depth is very weak ATM.

    I thought he was a better player this year than Chaput, Hudon, Peca and DesLauriers. He's a smart player, works hard, with decent skills.

    Suprising hands for a 4th liner.

    Kenny Agostino...2016-2017 Chicago Wolves...65 Games...24 goals...59 assist...83 points...leads the American Hockey league in points...yeah I'm guessing there's a lot of players looking to find that "Offensive Black Hole".

    Shero adding a player who used to be part of the Penguins organization. Color me shocked.

    I still root for him every time his name comes up. I thought for sure he would end up a decent 3rd liner on a team by now.

    It's alright. Works hard. Seems to be a player who's really good in the A, but can't put it together in the NHL.

    Of those player, the habs miss none. Well, unless Agostino goes on a tear.

    He's underrated, good pickup for NJ.

    Really just wasn't even a 4th line NHL'er. Good luck and all but when you think you couldn't have even gotten a 7th rounder for him and had to put him down thinking he might go for free.. later.

    Kind of sucks would have added some scoring in Laval. Still not sure how Weise will be any better but whatever I guess.
