He's supposed to be one of the most intimidating players in the NHL according to a survey of players. Even still that annual price is ****. Now I miss Shelley.

Seems like a panic move. And that money I'm really hoping isn't true.

Boogie man may be the best fighter in the league, but he's just not strong enough in other areas.


Should have just kept Orr if they were planning on this. Shelley was the best of the bunch however... Shame he's gone.

Two things. Carcillo is pooping himself right now. Watch what happens when either Hank or Gabby get run at.
Don't forget that Gaborik and Boogey played together for a few years. I'm sure he gave Glenn a big thumbs up.

I don't know, he is one of the better fighters in the league. But I wonder if he can bring the same energy as Shelly did.

If he finds a sucker to take Brashears contract it is only a 200 g difference this season

Absolutely...

Other fighters fear this guy.


The problem is that he just doesn't bring enough on the ice. He's an absolute monster out there in other areas, just not a good enough pure hockey player.

4 years? Wow.

Not really down with that today.

Boogieman gets more than our 1st line C?

FASCINATING

I dont think any enforcer, let alone one who hasn't scored a goal since '06 should get 4 years.

I dont like the money or the term, but due to the overpayment that Shelly got from the Flyers, we needed to pay more, free market. Boo is younger I believe, at 28 (Could be wrong) and is a menace on ice...we'll have to see how this pans out

Correct... He may even be the best fighter in the league. But I don't see the energy coming from him like it came from Shelley. And I doubt he's as good a lockerroom guy as Shelley was.

Pure, fighting yes. And if he can get in position, he can make some absolute monster hits. He also is fine with intimidating the other team.

He just can't play the game well enough... Don't mind the term, just mind the amount

I guess it's not that bad if you consider we got Biron for a steal. Every bit of savings helps when Sather ****s up.

UN ****ing REAL!

This seems like it will come back to haunt Sather. I certainly hope I am wrong.

If you're going to pay a guy to be tough, pay the toughest guy. Gotta figure we're getting rid of Voros, who got a million bucks a year to get ragdolled on a nightly basis. Isn't it worth the extra 650k to have a guy who can actually win?

I don't like the money... but since Brashear is still under contract, I would like to have Boogaard do NOTHING but beat the **** out of Brashear for the entirety of training camp.

If this happens, the singing is a success.

I dont know how any rangers fan can defend this deal. The term AND the money are horrible for somebody who is quite frankly, a bad hockey player. He can fight and literally do nothing else.
