About Those Signings Yesterday

from Stan Fischler of The Fischerl Report,

* `Paul (The Overrated) Stastny to the Blues looks a lot better than it will be for St.Louis. This is a case of style -- or media hype -- over substance.

* Good, Stastny is; but not nearly exceptional as the deal he's got would indicate.

* The Babbling Brooks Orpik to the Capitals move has inspired a lot of anti-Orpik hostility among the We Hate Brooks camp. But that only means that he'll be an asset in Washington.

* I don't figure that Not-So-Joltin' Jarome Iginla will mean much to the Avalanche except to prove that Colorado landed a former marquee player with the accent on FORMER.

* Then again, you can say that same thing about Neither Is He So Rapid Ryan Miller's move to Vancouver. We all know that Miller's game has slowly deteriorated ever since he gave up that cheapy to Sidney Crosby in the Olympics of long, long ago.
