Brett Lebda Signs PTO

I'm late on this but the Binghamton Senators have inked Brett Lebda to a professional tryout (PTO).

When reached for comment, Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said, “Our depth is no longer the envy of the league.”

Kidding aside, I wouldn’t read too much into Lebda’s signing or analyze what it could mean. At this stage of his career, it probably means nothing. He’s a 31-year fringe player who gives the organization another warm body with NHL experience. He split the 2011/12 season between Columbus (30 games) and their AHL affiliate in Springfield.

The fact that there is some familiarity with Paul MacLean from their time together in Detroit, makes for a nice correlation but I don’t want to say the two things are causally related or pretend that it will work to the organization’s benefit moving forward.

He is Brett Lebda after all.

I mean, when the best inherent skill he has is conjuring repressed emotions in Leafs fans, it says something about a player’s utility.
