I'm not sure. If you sign a guy now, I suspect it counts. I was talking about this the other day at the game and the rules changed slightly I was told under the new cba, he can play this year and into the playoffs. However, because of the timing and the trade deadline, guys still playing until the frozen four are ineligible to play because that is after the deadline.

Greetings Sens fans! Just saw this thread and read the story of Robinson's signing. You guys will like this kid. I saw Buddy quite a bit at Lake Superior State, so here's the skinny on him (my personal observations).

As has already been noted, he's big...very big. He plays somewhat of a similar style to Kellen Lain, who has already signed with the Canucks - can lay some punishing hits, strong on the forecheck, good offensive upside. But where Robinson is better than Lain IMO is on the defensive side (Lain IMO is a better offensive player). Buddy is very good at supporting his defensemen & goalie, whether it's in blocking shots or moving opposing players off the puck. He saw a lot of time on the Lakers' penalty-killing unit this season and really excelled as a rock solid penalty killer.

Two areas where he has vastly improved over the course of his collegiate career has been his skating and making better use of his towering frame. The size and strength he's added has greatly enhanced his skating, making his strides more powerful and providing better balance on skates. That has, in turn, added to his foot speed. As a stronger player, he is better able to move players off the puck in all areas of the ice and it has really helped improve his overall play along the walls. Robinson also does a great job of using his size to protect puck and is tough to move off of it.

If there's one weakness that Robinson has (that should hopefully continue to improve in the AHL) it's getting rid of pucks a little more quickly. At times this season, he's held on to the puck too long, usually because he was indecisive. When he does move the puck quickly, he's usually been pretty smart and confident about it.

IMO, Robinson will likely be utilized by the Sens as a shutdown, penalty-killing forward. He's not as physical as Lain is, but he also isn't afraid to mix it up either. Robinson has a high compete level and he works his tail off too.

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell. Hope this helps.

Looks like Tim's afraid Buddy will devour his arm.

Awesome - always love your reports! Glad to hear he works his tail off - with his size, assuming his skating continues to improve, perhaps the Sens have a real diamond in the rough...

I'd actually be fine if our guy and he were the same, less choir boys and more nasty, vicious, violent skaters on our team plox. Like this signing so far, hopefully he can actually play.

I was talking more about maximum contracts, but i guess they don't count after a certain date.

Thanks for putting this together for us! Sounds like he'd be a solid guy to add to your bottom 6 if he can put it all together at an NHL level.

Love signings like these, so much you can do with a 6'5, 230lbs powerforward that can skate.

I think so. Seems like it was around the time of our cup final run that Galley parted ways with the Raiders IIRC.

Thx for the confirmation. So Robinson would have been on the team the following season after Galley quit.
