    Top 4 potential and a tough kid. The Bruins need this very desperately.

    Great signing. I'm afraid that he will be the one lost to Seattle.

    Love the signing. Sweeney's gonna have to make a deal to get Seattle to take Moore.

    edit: Though this should keep Lauzon as RFA, so he's expansion draft exempt, no?

    Boston's defense was already like 12 -guys deep and then Lauzon stepped in and played great. I have no idea how all it will all shake out but some bodies have to move.

    I'm in the camp that you keep re-sign Krug but that means a beauty like Gryz, Clifton or Lauzon will have to go.

    I wonder who the Bruins will lose to Seattle if they sign Krug. I think Grzelcyk is too valuable to not try to make a deal with Seattle to try to keep him, but there's still Lauzon and Clifton beyond that.

    Not sure they can pay Krug and Gryz regardless. I think one of them is on the outs this offseason, sadly.

    Interesting they re-signed him right now. Wonder if they are looking for some cost certainty over the next couple seasons with the TDL coming up...

    Nice to get the second cheap year if he starts really soaking up some minutes next season.

    Exempt, possibly*. (RULE: (i) One defenseman who is a) under contract in 2017-18 and b) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons.). EDIT: Actually, the only thing I've read about restricted applies to goaltenders, so he may in fact be exempt, especially if he doesn't play the correct amount of games. Rules as of now.

    What it may do, without a specific salary attached to his rights, Seattle may opt to grab a different player from the Bruins should Lauzon be eligible and have an undetermined contract. Not having a contract could also appeal to Seattle on the opposite side of that argument, meaning they can negotiate what the terms of his new deal are.

    That said let's say the Bruins are looking at McAvoy, Carlo, +1 or 2 to protect. That leaves (Krug?), Gryzlek, Zboril, Vaakanainen to protect in that slot.
    If they choose to protect 2 of those defensemen, they are looking at only protecting 4 forwards. With Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak taking up at least 3 of those slots. If they only protect 3 defensemen, they can protect more of their forward core, but will likely lose a good defenseman either way.

    For the "who is that crowd"...

    Bruins 2nd rounder in 2015. Played for Team Canada in WJC. Rugged defensive minded LD who has been play RD for the Bruins for the last half dozen games. Looked good in his small look last year (even had a game where he got 25 minutes), and looks like a very solid D with very reachable 2nd pairing upside in this look, too. Limited by his offensive tools, but has a good and low hard shot and knows that when he gets the puck that's what he wants to do. At worst a bottom pairing guy who can play on PK1 in his prime. And has some nasty to his game.

    Its professional games not NHL games. AHL is professional. Vaakaneinen is exempt because his first year in AHL was at a younger age and it pulls some weird levers. Same as Honka last time around. Lauzon, Zboril, Gryz and Clifton all would have to be protected, with no slots available if Krug is signed.

    Krejci would be a UFA at the time so maybe.

    The rules say Seattle will have the same rules as Vegas, I believe.

    That said, do you remember how RFA's were treated? The only thing I've read is about goalies being RFA's, not forwards/defensemen.

    Yup same as Vegas. It was years since drafted OR professional games (including AHL) OR NHL games. There are some weird asterisks like for Vaakaneinen as a euro playing underage in the AHL who are exempt, but guys like Lauzon or even Frederic are fair game (Studnicka and his draft class or later are exempt).

    edit: Dom did a whole write up about it at some point in the prospects thread, but the net is Vaak, Stud and Beecher are exempt. The older prospects like Lauzon, Zboril or even Frederic are not.

    Pronman does not even know who Lauzon is, probably tells you all you need to know about that twit Pronman.

    Lauzon is a good sized, physical, steady defensive deeman. He has a mean streak and can add some offence, more upside then Carlo in the other teams end.

    Great signing by DS. It is these low profile signings , by GM's that go so far towards wining. Any player you can put in your line up that has more value than what they are signed for is huge in the CAP environment. I can see Lauzon being one of the best bargains in the NHL with in a year

    Nothing to complain about here. Kid looks like a keeper. Bruins and their 2nd rd picks strike again.
