2 years 1.2m aav
And here we go.gif
I thought it was 3 years. I don't know. Does management think we absolutely need this guy 2 years down the road?
Boro is smart. Knows he sucks so just signed ASAP.
Fair contract. [MOD ; You can't do that]
....what the hell is management doing
1.2 Mil to be a glorified mascot. Boro living the good life
locking up a 6th/7th dman for little money who provides something no other D man does
Paging Hale the Villain.
Better or worse than the Burrows trade?
Oddly enough, I think Boro is tradeable because of the number of hits he puts up.
Some Western Conference GM will be impressed.
LOL this should be popular.
I like it. He's an absolute warrior and is better than a lot of people give him credit for. He knows his role and in Guy's system he's been a good fit.
...and people wonder why so many Sens fans are pessimistic.
The problem is he isn't played as a 7th. Unless he starts getting regular scratches in favour of better players, we are just throwing an anchor on the 3rd pair.
no, it just shows how little Sens fans know about the sport.
It probably is "fair" but don't we have upper echelon depth in defence? We don't need to sign 7-8 d men to multi year 1mil+ contracts.
I said 6th as well, which is what he plays.
No other D man can hit people?
Another one of those extensions where you wonder... but why did we rush to sign him so early?
Well at least the contract is manageable. I don't understand the need to do this now though. Why not wait until the end of the season?
there is nobody on the roster right now who is as physical or plays with a hard edge like he does.
I'm happy for him, but lol wut.
If you think Boro is a legit #6.....
He does, poorly. Everyone on these boards loses their minds at the Sens taking 'safe' players in the 1st round. This is the exact same thing. Playing a 'safe' plug because he tries hard instead of a good player who might make a mistake. That isn't even a good excuse either because Boro messes up too. I don't think hes the worst player in the world or anything, but if you want to be a good team - aim for higher standards. Boro was ranked last in the NHL in offensive contribution from the D. I know that isn't what he is here for, but come on, it wouldn't hurt to be able to play outside of our own zone once in a while when the 3rd pair is out
It's more like 1.2 mill for a 10th/11th dman.
