He could be a potential replacement for players like Leopold, Sekera, and/ Or Gragnani. He is having an unbelievable year for Oceanic in the QMJHL. He set a record I believe.

For Gragani only, I'd say.

He really is the definition of a 3rd pairing, powerplay specialist, offensive defenseman. I don't see him ever being a top-4 minute eater.

Unless he plays 9 games in the NHL this year (which he won't), his contract doesn't count towards the 50 limit for this year. (it will next year).

Good to see this done, he was a no brainer for an ELC. We'll see how he does in the AHL next year.

Scotty Bowman would turn him into a center like he did with Housley.

He's been playing very well. You never know what he can become.

take qmjhl numbers with a grain of salt.

dude named thomas beauregard scored 71 goals in 06 and his highest level of hockey is the ahl where he played in 10 total games.

Agreed with the notion of staying away from numbers only. But for every Beauregard there's a Huberdeau, Kulikov, Vorachek, Perron, Giroux, Vlasic, Patrice Bergeron and Corey Crawford, etc. (Crosby and Fleury omitted)

Excited about JGL. Good news. I can see him up with us in as little as two years.

CapGeek has the contract details here.
Performance bonuses (games played) aren't included yet, but they won't matter when the bonus cushion exists again.
His real cap hit will be $635,000 after his contact slides ([$615,000 - $90,000 + $665,000 + $715,000]/3 = $635,000).

We're going to have five defensemen on ELC's next season and five RFA's (assuming Gragnani plays enough games, which is looking likely).
There's also Finley, who is on his second contract.
Six regulars on the big club will still be under contract too.
17 is way too many, so we'll likely lose a couple.

Not tendering Persson takes care of one, but that would mean that two would still be in the press box or in the ECHL if everyone was healthy and they didn't carry any veterans, so they still need to jettison a couple more.
Looks like we may finally have to trade away a player that we've developed whose value isn't at its lowest point (that's usually when we trade them).
