Love this move. At the very least he is a pretty skilled bottom 6 guy that can fill in for injury.

I don't know much about this guy other than he has a cool last name and does the old Phil Bourque move. If his work ethic and speed is as good as everyone says it is, this guy should fit in just right.

If he happens to score a goal for you, don't be shocked to see him barking as he high-5's at the bench.

Here is some clips showing what kind of character Daugavins, aka Dauggy, aka Rooster is.





It's 5 seconds in ^

Excellent locker room clip, wish that it was muted out all over the place. "Rooster" eh? That will go well with the Bruin's locker room T shirt of a Rooster to the player of the game. We've got our playoff hook!

I think they also want to get MacDermid playing time...in Providence. Is he subject to waivers?

So with him in the lineup, Paille can move up to the 3rd line and we can finally sit Pandolfo:

Marchand - Bergeron - Seguin
Lucic - Krejci - Horton
Paille - Peverley - Caron
Daugavins - Campbell - Thornton
Pandolfo

After Iginla (it's happening, dammit)

Marchand - Bergeron - Iginla
Lucic - Krejci - Seguin
Paille - Peverley - Horton
Daugavins - Campbell - Thornton
Pandolfo

Playoffs (pray for Kelly)

Marchand - Bergeron - Iginla
Lucic - Krejci - Seguin
Peverley - Kelly - Horton
Paille - Campbell - Thornton
Daugavins

assuming no more moves other than this waiver pickup and the GUARANTEED Iginla to BOS trade. *positive thoughts*

Definitely a good depth pickup by Chia

Yes, I'm not sure if this franchise will ever recover from not picking up Jussi Jokinen on waivers...

I wasn't impressed by him at all in the games we've played against him. Yeah he tried a cool shootout move, but that move is more novelty than it is skillful, anyone can do that. I don't know. Eh.

You aren't supposed to be impressed by him. Hopefully he takes Panda's place for now. And how awesome would it be if he did the chicken dance in Montreal?

I like him. Have no problem grabbing a player to fill a spot especially after the iggy trade goes down

Bruins will need bottom six player(s)



Can't wait to read Artemis saying that the shootout move was the "bees knees" once he starts playing in Black and Gold....cause he is now on the Bruins .....yawn!
I didn't see Arty complaining about that!

Isn't he on your SIM team?

I said yesterday I would take him to replace Pandolfo on the fourth line. This is the type of the guy the Bruins can actually use, fourth liner who can actually play.

But he did SCORE a sweet goal against Dobby. For that alone he should be in the lineup over Pandawful.

No SOD?

Just thinking about a lineup of something like this has me very excited to see how they do in the playoffs.

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin
Marchand-Bergeron-Iginla
Soderberg-Peverley-Horton
Paille-Kelly-Campbell
Daugavins, Thornton

There's our three scoring lines we need, every line has a big body to create space.

That fourth line looks like it could give some teams in the playoffs some trouble, awesome shut down line too.

Funny but he couldn't beat out Matt Kassian, that's why he was waived.

They weren't exactly competing for the same spot. One's a poor man's Shawn Thornton, the other is a poor man's Dan Paille. Give up the dream of a second, redundant heavyweight already. Who other than the Leafs even dresses two heavyweights on the fourth line regularly?

I was to see this move. I was like WTF is OTT thinking?! ..then I saw the production...Bourque-esque. IMO he looked great against us, esspecially last game. He was buzzing around, Charlie-hustle. And while he couldn't finish, he came off as a step away from getting it done. I think its a nice pick up. If it somehow ends the Clode/Pandalfo love affair, I don't think anyone could complain.

As for the SO move, I don't see anything disrespectful about it. Pull any move . As for the crease invasion, that should simply be a failed chance. The league needs to take care of that...

While I thought the move was interesting, the real cool and goalie mind bending thing to do would be to come down in that and throw a head / shoulder fake and then put the puck in a normal position right before you shoot, forehand or backhand...While Dogman's move is fun, all you have to do is take away the ice - he can't lift it an inch.

When is the last time the Bruins claimed someone off waivers? Wow.

Hey he's gotta be better than Pandolfo!

He won calder cup in Binghampton with a semi-important role. His involvement got him an interview on the NHL team. At the start of the 2011-2012 season he forms a successful line alongside other AHL callups Smith and Condra. So successful that GM Bryan Murray advises the daug that he can look into buying a house in Ottawa.

Past the mid-season point the AHL line fizzles out somewhat. Smith goes back to looking like a third line center and Daugavins begins his long stretch of disappointing play. He's been consistently dead last in +/- racking up a negligible amount of points.

During the 2012-2013 season Daugavins only has his lockeroom popularity, shootout theatrics and Bryan Murray's promise of a long-term job to hold on to. His adequate PK ability being sadly redundant in Ottawa.
