I think this means Zubrus is gone and Clarkson takes his spot.

Lou did say a series of moves would come fast and furious.

Trade is next I truly believe

Hmmm. Yeah, I'll leave it at hmmm.

It's better than Cam but now you have the chance of two of these guys playing at once, which means it's gonna be 20 a night out of lines 1 and 2.

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.

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.

He's also not on a 35+ which is good.

I think it's more to give Kovy guys he likes, like Moose and Boulton.

They're probably just making sure that he doesn't score a hatty on them this year.
eager is a ****ing disgrace to hockey. in the third of a season he was with atlanta he cost them at least 4 games.

boulton can actually play 10 minutes a game unlike most enforcers, and is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the league.

Eric Boulton confirms it is a two-year, one-way contract. He was at Rock today for physical before deal became official.

I pictured you stroking your chin and squinting your eyes as you ponder the signing.

Also, he made $650k last year. I'd imagine he's somewhere around there.

Ben Eager shouldn't get a dollar after *that game*.

So, why didn't we sign Rupp to center up goonarama? Or Zenon?
