CBJ sign Cody Bass

Broken By Scott Howson (pretty sure he's a credible source)

http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/blog.htm?id=106

Quote:
In the past week, we were able to acquire left wing Ryan Russell from the Montreal Canadiens for Mike Blunden. As I am sure most of you already know, Ryan is the identical twin brother of Kris Russell. We are also pleased to announce that we have agreed to terms with forwards Dane Byers and Cody Bass. All three players give us great organizational depth at forward and will make the competition for a roster spot during Training Camp in September even tougher.
Cody's stats.

Wow. Managed to completely overlook that.

"Aggressive energy forward" per http://forecaster.thehockeynews.com/...layer.cgi?5124 - so, probably a third-liner for Springfield or something.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

#CBJ have agreed to terms with former #Sens F Cody Bass on a one-year, two-way contract. A certain blogger let the signing slip.

Confirmed

Actually, of all the minor leaguers we've signed this off-season, I'd argue he's the most likely to stick. Was once touted as Ottawa's energy guy, but fell out of favor in the last couple of seasons.

If our bottom 6 aren't cutting it defensively, he'll get a decent shot here.

I would have thought that Evil Twin Russell would be more in line for that job (as he's evidently more proven defensively), but, hey, who knows?

He's never going to score much for you. He really doesn't really have any offensive scoring instincts or natural ability around the net.

That being said, he's great defensively as a shutdown guy, a penalty killer and a face-off specialist. You'll never have any issues with his defense. As well, he's not bad as a middleweight fighter, and can hit and grind with the best.

He actually had a spot on Ottawa's forth line a few years back until a few injury issues allowed him to be bypassed on the depth chart. You guys will love him if he makes the team, which probably depends a great deal on how his injury issues go.

He sounds like a good pairing with Pahlsson in the playoffs to shut down the other teams top line in a 7 game series. Now lets just hope we get there

I still can't believe that's actually Cam Neely.

Cody Bass will make some tough decisions for the coaching staff at training camp. If they're looking for character, he should bring it, and may very well be able to crack the lineup as the 12th/13th forward.

Good article on Bass
http://www.pressconnects.com/article...amton-Senators

Quote:
"I just felt it was time for a change," said Bass, 24-year-old native of Owen Sound, Ontario, who was recognized as last season's American Hockey League Man of the Year. "I spoke with (Blue Jackets assistant GM) Chris MacFarland, I liked the opportunity and I'm looking forward to a fresh start."

...


"That is my goal, to play in the NHL, and now my goal is to play with the Columbus Blue Jackets," said Bass, who became a restricted free agent upon completion of the season. "I'll do everything I can over the summer to assure that I go into camp ready. Whether I start in Springfield or in Columbus, it doesn't matter; I'll keep on working hard."

...


Said Tom Mitchell, B-Sens vice president of operations: "He brought a lot of grit and character, and he grew a lot this season. When the going got tough, he was one of the guys who kept on going. Not the greatest goal scorer in the world, but a great faceoff man and a great penalty-killer.
really like what I'm reading.

There is a reason Cody Bass is on a two way contract. He's a defensively responsible fourth liner at best with grit, and not a ton of skill.

Sounds like a strictly depth signing in case of injuries. No way in hell he should get the spot over Mackenzie.

It looks as if the #CBJ new belief is your either a center, defenseman or goalie. Wingers need not apply.

Rick Nash and RJ Umberger are the only wingers you'll ever need.

I like Bass, and I expect him to make the team. He'll boost the PK as well as the bottom six.

Cody Bass is a good influence in the locker room.

These comments are by Cory Cowick who played in Binghamton until the Sens season ended when some guys on 2 ways with the big club came down to Binghamton and displaced some of the regulars on the run to the Calder Cup.

Cowick and others were then black aces:

When the eight guys came down from Ottawa, I kind of saw it coming that there wasn’t going to be room for everybody on the playoff roster,” Cowick said. “It wasn’t about anything you did wrong. It’s just that the team got better.....

“I had no problem with it and (veteran) Cody Bass knew what it felt like. Cody was the biggest advocate of making us feel included. Every day, he would come into the room we were using and make us feel still part of it
.”
