Clarkson is infinitely better than these guys offensively, so I don't understand why he gets lumped in with them. He could concieveably score 20 goals. Boulton would take 5-6 years to score 20 and Cam would probably take 25 years.
This is a signing I like. People were clamoring for a tough guy who can also play. This guy can also play. He's a solid 4th liner and a really tough SOB.
Yup, I like this one. Boulton is a capable 4th liner. He averaged almost 9 minutes a game last year. He also outscored all our 4th liners except Clarkson, although 3 of those goals came in one game.

I just hope we didn't give Boulton a stupid contract the way we did Leblond (THREE years?!) or Peters, who we had to buy out.
Heard it's 2 years 1 way. This makes sense though. Lou obviously wants some toughness and protection but Janssen has an injury history, it's doubtful they both make the opening night roster time, but a boy can dream. We have some some younger inexperienced assets that can use some protecting.
