At least I'll get to find out what happened to Ceci...it's amazing how he started in the league and where he's at now...I guess I probably misread his hockey sense early on...

I don’t think that’s an awful signing. Some of the comments comparing him to JJ? Jesus, that’s insane.

He was effectively the Leafs' version of JJ.

He's not good and I can't really fathom why we would go out and sign him given we just bought out his left-handed counterpart, but at least we're only on the hook for a year I guess?

Just seems wasteful.

I don't know why GMJR even bothers lavishing praise on Ruhwedel and Riikola every offseason.

I reserve judgement until seeing him play whenever the Pens play next.

If I was Riikola, I would have asked for my outright release to go home or get traded.

If the writing is on the wall that the Pens don't think he's better than Cici or JJ, I'd just want to move on.

$6 million would get you a decent 3rd line center. Heck, $6 million would get you a decent 3rd line.

Man, some of you are going overboard on a 1-year, $1.25m serviceable defenseman. If he plays in the top 4, then I’ll worry. But he’s perfectly fine for a 4-5 role on this club.

I'd be fine with the signing if we had a 3rd line.

Wait, I'm not, actually. I'm tired of the GM signing dmen that, at best, don't suck as bad as everyone thought they would.

TVR at 800k or whatever he signed for would have been better

They needed a penalty killer back there. He has a bad rap now because of making a crap ton of money and not being any good.

On the 3rd pair at 1.5x the league minimum? Hard to complain.

Riikola and Beetle back to the fourth pairing for the third consecutive year. So **** weird.

No idea why they keep signing here when the team does anything possible not to play them... And why they keep re-signing them if they aren't going to play them... Very strange.
