Jets re-sign Paul Postma (1 year, $550k)
 
As per Scott Brown twitter.

MODs please add link I'm on a iPad and struggling :help:

Not surprising that he resigned but always good to lock up a prospect.

1 year/ 550,000

Lynk 07-13-2012 05:20 PM

Phew, I thought I wasn't going to be able to Postma puns anymore.

Crazed Fan 07-13-2012 05:21 PM

Great news!!
I hope he can make the Jets this year.

Hawker14 07-13-2012 05:23 PM

One way ?

Rheged 07-13-2012 05:23 PM

One year one way, should be playing with the Jets this year. :)

Good
I can still Postma my puns here

Gump Hasek 07-13-2012 05:51 PM

I think this one way signing has further implications that we may be missing. :)

They aren't promoting a prospect to simply sit in the press box akin to Flood last season.

*hint hint*

More moves to follow...

"He has a really heavy and hard shot (which) at the AHL-level is legendary." #NHLJets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff on Paul Postma

Easy there Kevin.

Legendary AHLer, a perfect fit for the True North Jets perhaps? :sarcasm:

Duir 07-13-2012 06:13 PM

Interesting that is a one way....wonder moves are next :pickle:

Paul Postma is waiver eligible this season and there really was no way he would make it through. No real point in putting in a two-way contract when the only way the Jets will be able to benefit from his contract is in the NHL.

Duir 07-13-2012 06:21 PM

Agreed. I figured that. I just wanted a reason to post a dancing pickle.

So many Enstrom conspiracy theories!
How about something as simple a the Jets paying a paltry half mill to ensure that a solid prospect with great offensive potential doesn't disappear from their organization in the next year?

Kinda makes sense as chevy has said he wants us to be bigger/harder to play against

There have been a lot of Enstrom trade rumors is all. Where there is smoke there is usually fire

I don't think Postma playing on the blue line is going to make this team harder to play against. His defensive play was absolutely rancid at times last season in St. John's. Postma really cannot under any stretch of the imagination be considered a replacement for Enstrom.

WJG 07-13-2012 07:00 PM

The good thing is that it's a one-way contract.

The bad thing is that it reminded me that Aaron Gagnon also has a one-way contract :(

Guerzy 07-13-2012 07:10 PM

Nice, it will be fun to see what Postma can do at the NHL level. Excited to see what Huddy can do with him.

I'm not saying postma would replace enstrom. He adds depth though so someone else could be moved up, maybe bogo?

buff-bogo
hainsey-stuart
postma-flood/clitsome

PaulSedin 07-13-2012 07:16 PM

i was really hopping to see him in S.T. Johns next year :(

anyways great signing Postma will turn out to be a great D man some day

TroubaFan1 07-13-2012 07:17 PM

Smart move Chevy!

Hansen Brother 07-13-2012 07:17 PM

Fantastic, our team is really lacking in offensive defensemen.

Sarcasm.

Nothing against Postma, he's good at what he does, but I would rather have Kulda on the team. A defenseman who is good in his own end, what a concept. I very much doubt we will be improving out 25th worst goals against with Postma as the #6.

Try perhaps to not think in such linear lines.

Even if Enstrom is traded the Jets would not by any means expect Postma to act as his replacement. If Enstrom was traded it wouldn't even necessarily mean they'd even go with the similar makeup on D. They could theoretically trade Enstrom for a forward or two or some prospects and drop an FA vet into the D (like a Hannan-type) just to solidify the mix for a year. If Enstrom is traded the goal would very likely be to make the composition of the team intentionally different, not similar.

Gump Hasek 07-13-2012 07:48 PM

Probably didn't word that last post correctly but I am admittedly balls-deep into the first weekend beers. What I was trying to say was that, Enstrom, though a very talented d-man, he also plays a specific style that may or may not mesh with what the Jets coaching staff are trying to create. Being more difficult to play against can also include the icing of personnel that fit more accurately into a specific system the coaches wish to employ.

Or maybe they might not want to pay what it will cost to re-sign him, thinking they can get better value by assigning the cost savings elsewhere. In theory they may also want to make room for Redmond at some point this season. The D group play across the board needs to improve regardless - with or without Enstrom, and the team needs to also play better team defense. The replacing of Enstrom with what are perceived to be lesser players doesn't necessarily mean the group as a whole will be worse though, it might simply prove to be different.

That said, maybe they won't trade him and will re-sign him instead.
