"The Winnipeg Jets today announced they have agreed to terms with defenceman Julien Brouillette on a one-year, two way contract worth $600,000."

Sorry if I did this in the wrong form/layout and-or I overstepped my boundaries, I just saw this pop up.

Love this, he is exactly what the Jets need. McDavid

Looks to be an undersized older LH career AHL D-man.

Which leads me to the question... Why?

I think my jokes about Chevy having "Day Off" right on the top of his business card finally got to him.

But yeah, he's a journeyman AHL player who cracked the bigs for the first time in his career last year for a monumental 1G - 1A in 10 games. Eh, why not, nothing wrong with cheap gambles. May even be for the minor league team's benefit alone.

So where exactly does this guy slot in on the depth chart? I'm assuming below Ellerby/Pardy, right? So.... is this guy ahead of a callup? If he is, why is that? If he isn't, why do we have him on a two-way? Doesn't make sense. It's not gonna matter one way or another, but I just don't want another Redmond because of guys like this. That's what I'm worried about.

Initial reaction is that this is AHL depth and nothing more.

I guess Chevy doesn't want us saying he isn't doing anything... Sheesh.

I'm a Caps fan as well and don't even know about this dude.

In terms of depth chart, I can't see how this guy even gets a sniff over others...

Looks like the Ice Caps will have the talent to make another long Calder Cup run! Way to go Chevy!

Any chance they could re-locate to Winnipeg? Would be nice to see some live playoff hockey sometime in the next 3 years...

Hey your on to something, if the Cap's do move out of St. Johns they may need a temporary home until the new barn in Thunder Bay is built maybe some of us just aren't giving Chevy enough credit there could be pro playoff hockey here after-all just not by the Jets!

Chevy's 5 + 3 year plan B AHL edition

Sounds like he'll earn another contract extension then!

Yup, the self-proclaimed smartest GM in the whole darn world may just be in for another fat extended contract, really don't know what Ol'Chips is waiting for!

Oh my god there's been an AHL signing, fire Chevy for not signing one of the non existent AAA free agents in August.

Don't worry, he's looking at Triple-A level signings next. Gotta stock up that Ontario Reign!

(I realize that's not what you meant in terms of AAA free agents... )

The responses to this signing are funny, but really he's likely nothing more than than a 9-10-11 defence men meant to play for the IC.

Nothing exciting but whatever.

What's wrong with signing a player with some NHL experience for the farm team? They want to ice a competitive team down there too. Odd reaction... he must be thrilled with the Jets fan base so far...

People are just frustrated at the slow progress, this will happen missing the playoffs three years straight and a good chance at four years straight. Add this to the fact that WPG/Jets/Chevy are starting to be openly mocked by bloggers, sports writers, other fans, sports analysts.......Jets fans are starting to question their own teams management. To be expected
