I like it at the price. This can only help. If we keep him in a suitable role he can help our pp. Additionally, if we find we don't need him after Markov returns we can ship him at the deadline for a draft pick or maybe another player.
Congratulations Gainey for being able to sign MAB when all the other teams in the NHL were trying to get this guy.
Good luck in Montral Bergeron, you gonna need that a lot.
He is a HAB now and I am going to cheer for him.
750K is an excellent number. He's very similar to Weber in terms of what he brings. If he sucks, we can compare him and Weber (and Carle, maybe) head to head and let the least-awful NHL defenceman win.
But right now, I can't complain. This costs no assets, and gives us a legit NHL veteran, even if it is one no one else would sign. And to whoever said he wouldn't play for 800,000....
Not only did our PP just improve with Cammy, Spacek, and Bergeron's Shot, but also with Mara's aswell. Bergeron also is known for his play making.
For 750k, and who we've recently lost to injury, I wouldn't say our D got worse at all, if anything we've improved the team overall. Hes not as terrible on D as everyone seems to be over-exaggerating about.
