Miettinen ended the year strong..

And it could be argued that Wellwood was a castoff even if he wasn't a waiver claim.

But yeah, for as much as I was happy with the UFA signing's, these last few moves have been puzzling at the very least.

i don't mind pelusa is he's a younger version of thorbs and were getting rid of the nose, but i don't really like a grit/fighter over any of our other players.

The Jets have realized this season is going to be a war of attrition.

Wasn't referring to fisticuffs. I meant that this season is going to come down to which team can win with the guys they have in their line up (in whatever condition they're in) on any given night.

The injuries are going to pile up for every team. No team is going to have the beautifully filled out line chart that fans have spent the extended off season fantasizing over.

Some nights are going to come down to the scrubs we found to fill in for the millionaires in the press box being better or worse than the scrubs the other team found.

Too bad for us, but the Devils needed to do that in a big way.

Agreed. I'm however glad we won't be paying that, too much cash and too long of a term for what is effectively a second line center.

I figured they would resign Zajac. That team was going downhill very fast otherwise.

They needed Zajac in a huge way. Not the least bit surprised to see it. Apparently, a full NTC is a part of the contract, too.

Getzlaf's power grows as he loses his hair. Bank on it.

Might as well throw Perry in there too. They really may be a package deal.

Kane - Getz - Perry
Ladd - Olli - Wheeler
Burmi - Scheifele - Little

Ladd and Getzlaf were teammates and linemates in their WHL days with the Calgary Hitmen. I fully expect our Captain to do his due diligence.

I always think he's ancient because of his baldness.

The Bombers should acquire Chris Getzlaf.

Just sayin', it can't hurt.
