Opens a lot of options for the teams. Could be a sign and trade of a physical defenseman, a non cap team wouldn't fuss over a 1.1m cap hit, if that's what it is. It could mean methot Cowen or wier are on the trading block. Personally I'm not too high on boro yet and would have rather seen him prove himself before handing out 3 years.
Not too sure on this signing. Why re-sign him for another three years when he hasn't even played one game on the current deal? Unless the organization is sure his value will skyrocket, in which case this could be a steal of a deal.
Sure hope it doesn't mean the Methot deal is falling apart, though. Would love to see Marc spend a long time here.
Hope it is some kind of 2-way deal that pays him $300k in the AHL. Lining him up to be long-term AHL leader and call-up. But with a contract that makes him waiver proof because of the big AHL $$$$.
Unlikely. If this is a 3 year guaranteed deal to a player that isn't NHL calibre. I just don't want to cheer for this team much. Boro is great. But if he is all the Sens aspire to have on this team, we are never going to compete. Plus it just boggles the mind. Boro has absolutely no leverage now. Why sign him?
Doesn't make any sense at al unless there is a trade imminent...they barely gave the guy a shot...and he wasn't very impressive last year with the big club...I like the character...but he hasn't really earned that contract extension...
