It’s been a slow month for the Ottawa Senators, and an exciting one for the AHL’s Binghamton Senators. Tony will have more on what has happened the last 24 hours with the affiliate in New York. However, a bit of interesting news coming out of the hockey world today. Former Anaheim Ducks, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs, and most importantly Ottawa Senators goaltender Martin Gerber has been signed to a one-year deal by the Deadmonton Oilers.
Click “Continue Reading” to find out what Martin Gerber has been up to lately.
Basically, this means the Oil have no trust in that kid named Jeff Deslauriers and Nik Khabibulin may need more time in jail than in the Oilers’ net. But what’s the difference, right? Khabby should be able to start giving E-Town a “solid” pairing of Khabibulin-Gerber. Both Stanley Cup Champions, yet incompetent son of a bitches.
We’re all too aware of what Gerber accomplished in the Nation’s Capital. Either than the miracle start of his in the 07-08 season, and his great 08 playoff performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins (in a sweep, ironically), Swiss Cheese never lived up to his $3.7 million salary given by John Muckler. After Bryan Murray finally gave Gerbs the clipboard late two seasons ago, the Buds picked him up and well, he did shit there as well.
He’s had his moments. 37-win season in 05-06 with Carolina, and who can forget that shutout of Team Canada in the 2006 Winter Olympics. I know Canadian fans will never forget that, and not for the right reasons. So by this, I say good luck to Martin in Oil Town. Hope you win some games there, and don’t be afraid of Taylor Hall there. He can’t do anything to you, well, unless he has photos of Kevin Lowe. Which I bet he does.
