I honestly don't know jack about MacArthur. Based solely on his stats to $$$ ratio I'll say probably not. Although Clarke may be a better value than any free agent available this season. So I'm going to pull a Mitt Romney and answer that with a "definite maybe"

On an unrelated note Dustin Brown has the most pathetic playoff beard.

*-*- forgot about the +. How about a gift certificate to The Hotbox Cafe?

Doc send me home saying that im at 100% and better than before my concussion, he predict my best season haha really exciting.
Kinda leaning towards the tender the Tender strategy now, if that tweet is backed up by some medical scientist person. As some Wild fans in another thread mention he is still a source of offense on the ice. Brings a physicality aspect. Likes being a part of the Wild organization. And not least at all, potentially him wing partnered with the Finnish Baby Jesus created a puddle of drool I'm still mopping up.

A hungry player with a lot to prove on a one year deal sounds like a good formula for productivity.

Let the kids battle it out with the overpaid vets for the 3rd line (Frattin, Colborne, Carter, Kadri vs. Connolly, Bozak, Lombardi, Armstrong, etc...).
MLSE has the $ to bury the vets in the minors if they lose that battle.


And if he does end up spending time on the IR, that actually opens up another spot for a youngster.
Based on what body of work?

He has done nothing in his NHL career to suggest he can fit on the 2nd line of a winning hockey team.

If the guy could stay healthy and put up 55 points in a season I could see your point.. but that hasn't happened.

And stop thinking that Burke can/will just bury anyone and everyone in the minors.. he won't do it. He's stated before that he doesn't feel it sends the right message to free agents that if they under perform they'll be riding the bus with the Marlies.

To date, the only significant contract he put in the minors was Jeff Finger.. and that was because the Leafs had 6-7 players with one-way contracts that out played Finger in training camp.

Additionally, what message does Burke send to his employers if he were to bury guys like Armstrong or Connolly (two of Burke's FA signings) to the minors?

The real world has repercussions. Just because MLSE has a big wallet doesn't mean it likes to use it to cover up mistakes. People with this mindset remind me of 17 year olds who took their rich parent's Escalade out for a joyride without permission, wrapped it around a pole and then look up at their father after he picks them up from the police station and says; " I don't see what the big deal is... let's just buy a new SUV."

This would be equally valid for MacArthur.

So scoring 25 goals in 55 games isn't good enough to play on a 2nd line?
