TSN reported today that Richard Park has signed a one way 2 year deal with the Islanders worth apporximately 500,000 each season but does anybody care? I personally really liked Park, as the Wild, but as a Canuck he did pretty much nothing. Can't recall a single game where I felt like he had any impact. I still wish him luck with the Isies.
For a guy who was billed as a defensive forward...
He sure was god-damned clueless when it came to defense. He was frequently out of position and was rubbed off the puck to a degree that made him ineffective. He is a player who IMO was made by the Lemaire system.
Last year he was what, the 7th choice for forward on our PK?
Doesn't sound like much of a defensive forward to me.
Good luck to him on the Island. Nothing against the guy, but he can be neatly filed away in the 'failed experiment' folder in Nonis' drawer.
