    Why are talking about Caufield in the Boldy thread?

    If you want to go back to a North Stars comparison for Boldy I'd suggest Tom McCarthy. Same size and skill level, though Boldy is by far a better 2 way player.

    I seem to recall McCarthy being in the top 10 in scoring more than once. If Boldy can match that he'll be quite the find. That Smith, Payne, McCarthy line was lethal.

    My bad. Thought they were out due to the loss in Big East tournament.

    That's exactly what he did. That was absolutely his bread & butter (as someone mentioned) later in his years in the league. Dude was phenomenal at it and got the sh*t beat out of him just parking in front of the net for years. When he retired, Tomas Holmstrom essentially took over the title belt for the league. Caufield is almost nothing like Chickarelli was.

    Guerin does good: duh, it was the obvious decision. Good on him for doing his job

    Guerin does bad: Fire him

    No qualms at all about him starting in Iowa, but if he has Eriksson-Ek-like numbers down there I hope they give him a chance in Minnesota this season (assuming the cap allows it?). Even if he doesn't make an immediate impact he seems like a player that'll develop well once he gets a taste of what the level of competition is. Give him a hurdle and he'll jump it.

    Well, we just lost half a year of Boldy. Guerin's an idiot! :sarcasm:

    I mean... this is kind of a "just do your job" sort of signing, no? I'm not sure how much easier it gets than signing your best prospect to an ELC.

    Sure, but he could’ve been pushing to get him on an ATO and people would’ve flipped out.

    I'll try (and mostly fail) to avoid micro-analyzing what happens between a GM and an agent, but pushing to get him on an ATO for this year does seem like it's overthinking things. Overthink guys like McBain and Warren; sign Boldy, burn the year and make him feel important, because he is.

    And credit to Guerin, that seems to be what he did.

    Because pushing for an ATO from a player like Boldy would be an example of a GM doing his job poorly.

    ATO's aren't very realistic for a prospect of Boldy's stature. You either sign him to an ELC and play him immediately or you don't. Even Hardman got an ELC and reported to Chicago's taxi squad straight away.

    Yeah, I agree, prospects like Boldy and Rossi aren't the guys you try to finesse the system and squeeze out every nickel, dime, loophole, and contract year on. Sign them and play them ASAP.

    This can't be real. All I've heard is there is no chance this happens because Guerin is a terrible GM.
