5 worst signings during the off-season:
1. Mark Streit, NYI
I’ve been highly critical of this move from the get-go. Streit doesn’t fit at all on the island, and the Isles overpaid for him. Streit will wish he was still in Montreal before the season even starts.
2. Todd Bertuzzi, CGY
I don’t see this signing panning out for either side. The Flames fans are already against him from his days in Vancouver. I doubt he’ll be able to survive under Mike Keenan. He should’ve been one of the players going overseas…
3. Jose Theodore, WSH
A panic move by the Caps once Huet rejected their offers, Theodore is on the downside of his career and will be making much more money than he’s worth. He may be able to hold the fort in DC for a year, but he won’t last long after that.
4. Jeff Finger, TOR
This is by far the worst money move of the summer. A 4-year, $14 million deal!?!? What was Cliff Fletcher thinking!? He gave the fans the finger (pun). Finger may be a solid 5th or 6th d-man, but he’ll never live up to the $3.5 million salary.
5. Mike Commodore, CLB
Another move that I hate! Commodore will be making MORE than Finger. Commodore is vastly overrated, and the Jackets vastly overpaid the red-head. That’s all he’s really known for… his hair. But Columbus won’t see that side of him, as it only comes out deep into the playoffs…
