Toronto signs Alex Berry

http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/team/app/?...ticleid=414529

Quote:
The 6-3, 215-pound forward appeared in 37 games with the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Minutemen this season, registering 11 goals and 19 assists for 30 points with 83 penalty minutes and a team-high plus 10 rating.
This is definitely Brian Burke's m.o.: sign a multitude of college guys and hope a couple pan out well enough to make the team in the next few years.


BTW, should we keep having posts for these, or should we have an all-encompassing thread for junior/college/European signings?

He was a 5th rounder for the Leafs in '05. Anybody know if he brings a good hitting game?

He's a tough kid in the corners.

He's the typical Brian Burke fourth liner.

good point, perhaps a no-name (to most posters) has signing a contract isn't threadworthy...You'll still be able to find it on the teampages.

A lot of guys going to AHL,ECHL now as well..lots of movement now that the juniors and college seasons are finishing

wouldnt the leafs still have rights to him, making him NOT a free agent signing? Still, sounds like a good guy to have in the system.

No one called it a free agent signing...

Hopefully Berry can bring a good physical presence to the lower lines for the Leafs in the coming years.

As for the tread issue, maybe have one thread for each team, with the newest signing being updated into the title?

I don't think it matters, its not like there's a lot going on in the trade forum anyways.

That would be a logical move. Thing is, too many posters believe every b-c grade prospect signed by their team is the next derby winning longshot and the mods have to break it to them gently by clumping them in with guys like Berry.
