    He was decent last year but showed up ridiculously out of shape this year. Doesn't seem like the type of person Bob would want.

    Well, the last guy we tried this with turned out pretty good in the end. Maybe being cut by Tampa will give him a kick in the ass he needs

    Maybe as a project.... idk better than bieska and sustr i assume

    Think there is some potential... he is kinda similar to josh manson style if i remember right ... obviously not as good.

    I expected the Ducks to go after this guy to be honest. Kind of reminds me of Depres in the limited viewings ive had. I liked what I saw, young, big and mean and can do a little bit of everything on the ice, an ideal 5th-6th D. Still very young for a Dman at 24. This is all assuming he's in shape and committed, which I would hope is the case at this point of his career.

    Does this mean Pettersson to San Diego or will he go there? On paper this looks like a good gamble.

    Well, Dotchin shoots right, so I'd think he'd be replacing Schenn or Sustr.

    Dotchin is on waivers. If he was a UFA signing for the NHL roster he wouldn't have to go on waivers, so I believe this is a depth signing and a project for San Diego.

    I'm thinking Dotchin is an upgrade on Sustr, and waiving/demoting the latter would create at least a small amount of cap space that could be needed to help squeeze Ritchie in.

    Or maybe they just decide to keep Dotchin in SD until we inevitably run into more injuries.

    It’s a one way contract. They probably just need him to get less fat, before he joins the big club.

    Could be, but the Ducks have Sustr, Schenn, and Holzer (injured) as third pairing right handed d-men on one way deals. Who knows what Murray is thinking.

    Don't hate it. He was very serviceable when in shape.

    Cap Friendly shows this as an $800,000 one way contract. With both Schenn and Sustr signed for the right side I have to wonder why they have signed another right handed defensemen. This gives them three, and this doesn't count Wellinski. How many third pair right handed defensemen do we need? I understand the need for depth given what appears to be the inevitable injuries. But is this just Bob not being able to resist a bargain?

    I don't know if this is what people had in mind when they said we needed more size on the blueline...

    So it seems he was paid 615 last year. He was cut for being out of shape and the Ducks are going to pay him 800 this year?

    Seems odd even for Barstool.

    That's under the assumption that Anaheim was the only team in the league interested in signing him

    Does he have cute chipmunk cheeks like Ritchie? Are we trying to replace Ritchie in every way?

    It's a gamble with the aim of having long term payoff more than an immediate payoff imo - keep in mind he's still a RFA after this season while the likes of Schenn/Sustr will be gone.

    If he gets himself into shape you have a guy who showed some really solid potential in his first year (IIRC he was Hedman's D partner for a while) before running into conditioning issues, and if this is a wake up call to him you have a guy who may be a 2nd pairing guy with a bit of luck. If it doesn't work out? Well it hasn't really cost anything to try.

    I much prefer this type of gamble to BM's usual gamble of hoping a 1st rounder 5 years past his draft suddenly turns into an NHL player given Dotchin has at least shown some decent level of play in the last season or so in the NHL.

    I like it. You always want your waiver claims to have upside, and this one does if he gets his head on straight
