Hate this. He's a useless player. He doesn't score. He doesn't cycle. He doesn't fight well.

All he does is get beat up repeatedly and take ice time from other players.

And 2 years? Sigh.

TB payed two 4th round picks for him, so they're going to get the mileage at least.

Yeah, don't get this at all. He's willing to fight, he just blows at it.

Not a fan of this signing, but for now I'll be a good little sheep and side with SFY

Has anyone noticed that he was missing while injured? I haven't. I don't see what he adds to the team.

It depends on what SFY does after this. If BJ isn't the default fighter next season, then I can see it being okay, but his big contribution right now is fighting, and he completely sucks the energy out of the Lightning when he does that.

I could live with this one as long as he gets around 1 M per year. Solid 4th liner. Not great but much better than slow Hall.

He does bring good energy and is a good 4th liner. He just happens to be a ****** fighter.

Yeah, if he doesn't have to fight, he's fine. He's a good penalty killer and good 4th liner. Just please keep the gloves on.

Eh. Money is ok. Crombeen is an effective 4th liner but he's expected to play tough guy on a soft team. If Coop pushes for a legit fighter/tough guy next season than this is a food move.

He's not bad as a 4th liner and serves on the PK. Rather have him blocking shots than Palat/Panik/Killorn.

Have to agree that if he doesn't fight, he's not too bad as a fourth liner but surprised nonetheless.

Well this one was firmly in my not expected basket. At first I didnt get it at all, but it can kinda make sense. We are a young team, and BJ might be a really good leader for the locker room (I really dont know). I mean hes a good penalty killer, decent 4th liner, and for the price, really not too bad of a guy too have around. I just worry if this means weve given up on Labrie after his latest injury. I thought the kid would effectively take Crombeen's place in the roster next year.

I do think Crombeen is better than Labrie. Labrie has his good moments, but too often he looks like he doesn't belong in the NHL.

Not a big fan of this move, because I don't know of anything BJC does well. Everything is decent: decent fighter, not great; decent skater, not great; decent puck-handler, not great.

1.15m for a 4th liner is a bit steep IMO. However, maybe Crombeen will improve in the near future since he knows he'll be here another 2 years.

Best explanation I can think of is that Cooper likes having Angelidises and Neilsons and Labries as role players in his big family atmosphere, and Crombeen and Thompson are just NHL-level versions of what those guys brought to the AHL table.

Anyway, the money and term aren't really devastating, and like others said, he's a useful defensive forward when he isn't getting beat up.

I think he adds to the energy of the team when he's not doing what he was brought in to do: fight.

He really does sap it out of the Lightning when he fights. Nothing ever happens. When it does, he's usually on the receiving end.

But all in all, he's a good energy guy who hustles and does what is asked for him. It seems like he is redundant with Thompson and Pyatt and all the Cuse players coming up soon, but I guess that's for SFY to decide.

This is silly. The guy plays a ****** role. He get stuck fighting heavyweights because no lightweights will fight him, and he gets knocked around because of it. He does it, doesn't complain, and gives you everything each and every shift. Worth it, good extension, good PK guy.

This. He was going to get re-signed. The money's a good price and he's not a terrible player. I don't mind this.

For those who are in favor of the Crunch kids, there's no need to worry. Just like with Adam Hall, another 4th line vet, when the time comes he could be challenged and have his spot taken.
