    Cool. I came in ready to make fun of the puff piece about him but he won me over. He had a good camp and earned it. I like his style.

    Anyone know why he's listed as waivers exempt? He played out a 3 year ELC and has 4 AHL seasons under his belt.

    Guess that's why Freddie Tiffels is gone (at least in part).

    At worst should be a good AHL scorer.

    Bigger body RH shot and is insurance for any injuries to RW's.

    I don't see a connection, Penguins are still at 45 contracts, and Haggerty was already in WBS, I think Tiffels had enough of the ECHL and didn't see a future even in the AHL, so he preferred to return to Germany.

    If I remember correctly he really hated bouncing between Wheeling and WBS. As you said probably saw more of that as we have a pretty good AHL roster.

    Particularly when he was one of the first cuts.

    That said, I agree with Giskard, I don't see why there should be a relationship between Haggerty's contract and Tiffels' leaving when we had 45 contracts, even if all the journos reckon it was Tiffels leaving that opened the door.

    Good grief you are obsessed.

    I like this! Felt like he scored in every other game in the beginning of last season in WBS.

    I was a little surprised he didn't get a NHL-contract after last season, but they probably wanted a few contract openings for camp invitees. But since no one turned out to be the new Bellerive/Miletic and Tiffels gone this signing is a no-brainer.

    He cleared waivers. Not that there was much of a concern that he would be claimed.
