Jared Boll Re-signs 2 Yrs 2.1 Mill

All over twitter. Not confirmed from Porty. I guess you can change it to rumor.

NVM Dreger confirmed it.

RT @DarrenDreger RT @aaronward_nhl Source Jared Boll agreed to terms with #CBJ 2yrs @ 2.1million #TSN

Well... thats overpayment. Especially since he got leapfrogged by Dorsett and he has 0 offensive game. Oh well. Not too bad I guess.

Not overpayment, but he doesn't really do much for me. Zero offense, below average fighter...

I see nothing wrong with the deal, but I had hoped they would of replaced him with someone that might win a fight here and there.

Unfortunately it isn't either or; we have 'em both.

4th line: Gilles-Mackenzie-Boll with Russell waiting in the wings.

I would have let him walk, but this doesn't break the bank I guess. What I don't understand is the direction Howson is going. Maybe it will all come into focus tomorrow. Right now, I'm just not seeing the "vision" of how this club will even be competitive next season. Next season is being built on an improved defense, the hope for better goaltending (which with Mason here, I don't see how that is possible), no Nash and an absolute dearth of scoring. Again, the next couple of days could change things, but I'm not seeing much hope.

A million bucks per in a 70 million salary cap league. I don't feel like its overpayment and I'm not a big fan of his game anymore.

I think the point here is isn't there a better 4th line guy out there even at 2 mill or a bit more? Prust? Burish? somebody? anybody?

Maybe Howson is planning on adding such a guy and having Boll/Gilles battle it out for the 12th spot and Russell is in Springfield.

It will be clearer in a week.

Ya, I don't get this signing... lots of 4th liners with fists for less.

I'm OK with this deal. I don't love Boll, but he's fine in his role and the terms are completely palatable.

So congrats on the new deal Boller!

For $1 million we could have had the pride of Washington, PA, George Parros. Better fighter and great community-oriented player.

Now we have extended a player who is not particularly bruising (outside of sropping the gloves) has no offense and isn't exactly a defensive standout for 2 years. Pointless signing.

Hmm yeah... seems like some weird loyalty thing to me. But oh well, it's Howson... I'm okay with it since he didn't sign him for 5 years at 2 million per year

That's way overpayment considering he could be replaced by a player with a 2-way contract with more upside. Boll has had his chance and showed zero offensive potential. There are plenty of AHLers who can be a punching bag. Boll is a waste of a roster spot.

How does one reshape a roster when he keeps resigning the same players?

I don't understand this at all. The really scary thing is that Howson is handling the Nash situation. I hope this all makes better sense soon.

I thought Boll's performance was pretty poor last season.

So, Howson signing him for two years makes perfect sense in the Alice in Wonderland world of GMSH. I mean, it's not like Boll wouldn't have taken a one year deal.

Howson is simply ridiculous.

I don't really know how I feel about this one. Thought perhaps his time had come and gone, but neither dollars or term are terrible. May be his lockeroom presense has some value. Can function as 13th forward/4th liner as required. Russell can log time help out in SPR.

Agree. Howson doesn't want to do anything beyond dipping toes in the FA market, apparently, but he will sign this deal? I like Boll's passion and energy, but is that worth it? Guys that would be better suited to the role on the market and Howson does this..... Its not a backbreaker by any stretch of means, but it is poor roster management, IMO.

Apparently, the "Reshape" is completely contingent about a Nash trade....

Which, ironically, would not be happening if a rebuild/reshape/rewhatever hadn't been announced. Getting rid of Carter for JMFJ and a 1 was smart;from then on, not so much.

Its almost enough to make one wonder exactly what the organization said to Nash after the January 16th ownership meeting when the "reshape" was probably first devised....

Was it initially going to be a full rebuild and was changed to a "reshape" when the Nash asked for a trade?
