2 million is not cheap for a 13th forward
And if not, he can go play in Providence and it won't really hurt anything. I do hope he bounces back though, he could be a good player for us.
Its 1 mil per year, though, so pretty cheap
ah was going off Dreger's initial tweet that had it at 2 mil aav
Yeah I saw that at first, too. So I think 1 mil. for the guy and what he could do for us is reasonable, and its no harm if he plays at the Dunk
yeah 1 mil for him is totally fine, I actually dig it now
nevermind.. already addressed by someone
I just don't get this signing. This guy dosen't bring any offense, isn't physical or fast, why are we bringing him in ahead of our talented kids in Providence.
I don’t think they want to have a legitimate prospect getting splinters in their ass. I think that would be the motivation behind this move. Why waste Cehlariks or Blidhs time as a 13 FW when they could continue to play regularly down in providence
I’m with you on this. Puzzling.
not on board with this one - he's an expensive depth guy. handing out $1M contracts like oprah.
I’m sure they’d like the financial implications involved with being a 13th forward
Boston’s turned Carolinas obscure bottom 6 players into serviceable dependable guys before.
"I think my biggest asset as a player is my skating," said Nordstrom. "I know the Bruins want to play fast, so that is, obviously, something I can help with. Then, just on special teams, the last couple years, I played a lot of PK, so that's, obviously, something that I wanted to bring to the table, as well. I don't want to limit myself to just be a special-teams guy, so hopefully I can take my game to the next level here with the Bruins."
Getting to Know: Joakim Nordstrom
No, neither one is obvious. We'll see if you bring either thing to the table
Maybe by the end of his contract I’ll stop calling him Joakim Noah
he did play 82 games last year so that positive
For some reason I am getting Kemppainen vibes from this. A guy who is physically present on the roster but you can watch a game and not actually know if he was playing or not or what he actually does shift in and shift out.
Hope Im wrong about him, willing to give him a shot atleast...nothing wrong with depth who can PK.
This one I don't understand. Adds nothing for no reason.
After some thinking, I'm ' ok ' with this deal. I think he gives the team a bit of what they lost with Schaller ( 1.9 for two years with Vancouver ) on the ice and at a reduced cost on the balance sheet.
I hope one of the kids is hungry and talented enough to beat him out of roster spot, but if not, Nordstrom is there to do his role - preferably that's as the team's 13th forward but he is a legit NHL player.
Don’t think I ever saw Kemppainen do this:
Get his ass beat? Lol
Looks like he graduated top of the class at the Jimmy Hayes school of fighting -- hold on for dear life while the other guy throws punches.
Taylor Chorney was a veteran fighter. I give Nordstrom props for just dropping the gloves with him.
hmm fair point..we never saw Kemppainen lose a fight in his entire storied NHL career...and that's why he is....AND STILLL THE REIGNING, UNDISPUTED, UNDEFEATED HEAVYWEIGHT NHL CHAMPION OF THE WORLD.....JOOOOOOOOOOONAS KempPAINen!!!
