The Ads signed Mike Liambas to a standard player contract Sunday after an impressive 27-game stint last season.

His physical style of play and fighting ability quickly made him a fan favorite after he was loaned to Milwaukee by Orlando on February 4.

Liambas picked up 74 penalty minutes, scored his first AHL goal back on February 17 and added an assist in the Western Conference Quarterfinals against Texas.

In the NHL playoffs, seven former members of the Admirals organization remain in contention for a Stanley Cup: Boston’s Claude Julien and Rich Peverley, Ottawa’s Cory Conacher, Pittsburgh’s Tomas Vokoun and Mark Eaton, Detroit’s Jordin Tootoo and Chicago’s Sheldon Brookbank.

What do you think of the Liambas signing? Nice to see the team keep his presence on the roster, and it’ll be interesting to see what he can do over a full season.

Which former Admiral has the best shot at the Cup? Who are you rooting the hardest for?

  1. The signing of Liambas is good, the first few games of him being here I didn’t like him he seemed goon like and added nothing over the course of the last month and a half he won me over and brought grit and attitude, glad he is back! I’m pulling hard for Ottawa to win the Cup! The West is full of teams I can’t stand, I don’t like pittsburgh and nyr doesn’t do much for me 2nd team would be boston so go Cory n the Sens!!!

  2. I like Liambas’ never quit attitude best. Glad to see they signed him. I don’t really have an NHL team that I am pulling for over any other, but it will be a huge disappointment of a season if the Blackhawks don’t win the cup.
