As has been said, Mitchell was used alot by Torts in the playoffs, he had alot of trust in him, I really like this signing. And 1.1M is probably 2M less then McClements gonna get for similar players IMO.
I really like this deal, but I REALLY Hate the Carkner deal, makes no sense.
No problem with this--it's a 4th line center, they're a dime a dozen, and it's not like this guy is Jeff Shantz. And hell, even if he is, I'm sure there's someone in Lake Erie who can take his place, or we can just put Olver there. Not a big deal either way, though I hope he can do some PK duty. Sounds like he's good on faceoffs, which is a huge plus.
having size, puck possession ability and some offensive skill is very nice to have on the 4th line. could give us good energy on that line and combine that with kobasew's underrated wrister, hey we might even get some offensive from that line. our PK is gonna take a hit though since Mitchell is not a PK guy and I would have liked a PK guy.
