    I get the Wagner contact. Not really sure I understand this one. Sure I guess a 13th forward, but seems like you could have given Fitzy that role.

    I'd prefer Fitzgerald plays over sits as a 13th forward.

    Nordstrom is a high end fashion store. Hopefully this dude can bring something, anything!

    Maybe he is Cehlarik’s replacement in Providence and will be injury replacement if required

    Is 1 million the new "off the cap" number for demoted players?

    I hope so.

    Can’t say I like this signing. Loved Halak and Wagner. This, not so much. Cehalarik or even Anton Blidh should have had a crack at that spot.

    It makes me nervous that they’re considering promoting Kuraly to 3c because this gives them 4 full time, one-way contracts for 4th liners. (Kuraly, Wagner, Acciari and Joakim)

    Once upon a time was seen as a good defensive (if not physical) F, with some puck handling skills. Kind of a C version of PJ Axellsson. But his skating isn't great and he had a horrible year for CAR. One of those guys that you watch and say "What exactly does this guy do well enough to be in the NHL". That said, he won't hurt you a ton either. Just a "blah" guy. But 13th F who can playb C and do it cheaply? It's not horrible.

    Agree.

    Halak and Wagner make us better, but not better over the top.
    These other signings have me shaking my head.

    If Krug is being moved I'm going to freak!

    Dislike. I was on board with Halak and Wagner, I'm undecided on the Moore signing at the moment. But this one is useless. Hopefully he's off to Providence and not taking icetimefrom some potential youngsters getting a crack.

    Ya, like most, I don't get this one at all. Not overly concerned though, it's not my money and it can buried in Prov so no biggy.

    I'm going to assume a Riley replacement, cheap and a former Cane. Could easily be the 13th forward so you don't have to put a prospect there. Hopefully he does alright for us.

    If Nordstrom can bounce to the season he had in 15/16, it's a good signing for you guys. Hard working winger who can kill penalties well and has good speed on the forecheck. I think he'll fit the Bruins system well.
