Did he go to arbitration or was this agreed to before arbitration?

No arbitration here. Good deal for a guy who will play for Rochester but can fill in if we get hit by several injuries.

I mean it's fine if it's a 2-way deal and he's AHL depth. Our left wing situation is just overstuffed at the moment, and if anyone has to fill in as depth I'd much rather it be CJ Smith. If anyone wants a fourth line power forward for cheap, I'd try to flip him for a pick. He wants NHL time and he shouldn't get it with us.

Girlish name in the NHL


Remi is a common guy’s name as well as a girls name in the French language. It’s origin is related to “oarsmen”.

Also, attributing feminine qualities to someone in a pejorative way is soooooooo last century. Hurry up and grow up.

It’s just prelim details right now, but I wouldn’t bet on it being 2-way. He was on a 1-way deal at a little over $700k last year so for him to take a cut to his NHL salary makes me think it’s likely still a 1-way deal. Were it 2-ways I think you’d see something like $800k as his NHL salary (and a bit less than half that at the AHL level) to compensate for the lower income he’d get for the time he spends in the AHL. But I could be wrong.

Reports are that it's two-way. I'm surprised too. He did probably get a nice negotiation on his AHL pay like you mentioned.

Looks like you were right! Tho his AHL sal is decent (and he got an extra $100k guaranteed on top of that. Not too shabby for minor league salary. Compared to baseball (and almost every other sport), AHL salaries are decent.

Just so you know, this guy is notorious for inventing insulting names for players, or making comments similar to the one to which you are reacting.

Thx for the heads up. I figured. And while it’s probably best to not feed the troll, I can’t help myself sometimes. 😑

If you want to waste some time, go on his Profile and look at some of his made-up names for players. You'll be appalled.
