    Guy who passed through waivers for a potential bottom 6 C just entering his pro career. Sounds about Begeright.

    Nothing deal, although Olofsson has played some in the NHL. How did he do for the Wild last year?

    Another weird move by the king of Bargain bin moves. The team needs some NHL defensive help not another borderline guy that is being sent to the AHL.

    bergevin is ****ing in love with the 2013 somehow, he's trying to make his own Meta and see if you can win a cup with a roster fill with the same draft, ****ing idiot.

    Never been high on Bitten personally, I see him as a dime a dozen diminutive small/fast bottom 6er. I don't mind the trade at all, but I haven't followed Olofsson since his draft year.

    When healthy he can skate and defend pretty well. He's about as sturdy a balsa wood and is on his umpteenth shoulder injury at this point.

    He was considered to be at about the same level as Mike Reilly last year, if that helps. Less fun to watch, though.

    Happy with this as a Wild fan, originally thought Olofsson had potential but took some big steps back the past two years. Even when healthy, I thought he made some really poor decisions that showed he was not NHL quality. Still has time to turn it around but he wasn't going to get that chance with the Wild, Seeler jumped him out of nowhere on the depth chart and plays a much better game.

    I've always like Ollofsson and think he can play in the NHL. But for better or worse, he's not what BB wants from his third pair.

    Olofsson got buried, similar to Mike Reilly.

    Both have bottom-6 potential.

    I don't understand this deal. Why didn't Montreal just claim him?

    I don't think Bitten will bring offense in the NHL. I'm not even sure he will make it.
