Tim Stapleton Signed (2 year deal)

Quote:
Two-way deal this season, $525,000 over $105,000. NHL deal next season worth $525,000.

Stapleton's Career Statistics:

Joined the team in Colorado in case Burmi wasn't ready to go, will probably be a healthy scratch tonight since Burmi says he's ready according to Ramsay.

I like the signing, very small guy but could certainly be a scoring line replacement if needed for a couple of months. As for him being on the team next year... I'll believe that when I see it, but having competition for Pettersson is always a good thing.

Next seasons deal is apparently one-way. To be honest I don't see him making the team full time next season.

It's odd. I guess it forces them to waive him or trade him if he doesn't make the team next year. Either way every other team will know he's still around. Maybe just a tactic to not end up without an NHL/AHL job.

He has no shot at making the team full time as of now.

It's a way to guarantee he gets paid $550,000 regardless of what happens to him. First time any team has ever given him that.

It's Atlanta's way of saying 'We really like you and will make sure you're well-paid regardless of how much time you spend in the bigs.'
