Interesting signing..... Gifted offensively; but he does not have the best "locker room" reputation....
Why has he been on two ECHL teams already this season?
Who on third line goes?
No one. He fills in for Auger and Firman goes back to being 10th forward. Last weekend the Komets used seven D.
What's the difference between claiming a player off waivers and signing them as a free agent?
Claiming them off waivers you accept their contract. Signing as a free agent you negotiate a new contract.
How long has he been here? ..he's already in a komet uniform in the picture...
He was at practice yesterday.
First, I'd like to congratulate the Komets for trying to obtain more scoring. If he's anything like his brother we will find him going to the net often. He has ECHL experience ( but I can't help wondering if a lockout added ECHL should be compared to a non-lockout ECHL). His first year was the best, numbers delined each year after, but still owns significant totals. Not sure about his lockerroom reputation as others have noted. There is some reason why he has traveled so much in his career.
I always thought that his brother, David, and Colin Chaulk got along well. Hopefully he gets comfortable here and blends in with the team under Chaulk's watchful eye. He was under consideration earlier in the off season, and passed by. I've heard the reasons but I'm not sure I swallow all of that.
We'll see. It would be a big help if he could get off to a strong start.
By the way, if I were on the same line with Brandon Marino and he had the puck, I would make a mad dash for the net. One way or another, Marino is going to get the puck there by shooting, or passing.
One more thing. Beauregard's plus/minus numbers have been just even at best. He was a+17 in 2007-2008. That was his best during his stay in the ECHL. Like his brother under Puhalski, Sims will be watching his defense as well.
I was onboard with Alan until I read a reference to defesnse while discussing DAB. Lol... That guy might have played less defensively than Jim Duhart.
