Exactly , you get 1 out of every 10 player that pans out into anything useful , just like college free agentsI find it funny how certain Habs fans on twitter are going absolutely nuts that MB lost out again on a UFA.
We're talking about a 26 yr old 5'11 dman that has spent his pro career in Europe.
These guys end up in the AHL or back in Europe sooner than later.
I remember Oliwer Kaski being last years "best euro dman" after he was named the Finnish league MVP and signing with Detroit only to be traded to the Canes later that year.
he really is no different than alot of Euro pros out there with upside...he’s just really hyped up because he had a very good year last year and social media made this guy bigger than he is.It's still a free lotto ticket with upside. Rather have one than not.
Yeah...he decided to go elsewhere. Not much Bergy can do. If I were him, I'd rather play with the Leafs as well.he really is no different than alot of Euro pros out there with upside...he’s just really hyped up because he had a very good year last year and social media made this guy bigger than he is.
this guy could turn into a very good NHLer, who knows, but to bash an organization like alot of Habs fans are for failing to get him signed is laughable
