    So then worry about the RFAs instead of Krug.

    Why would this matter? It's JJ's money and if he wants to spend it on a one-way contract that's his business.

    Offer sheets are part of the game. If more teams didn't think they were a weasel move, the league would be better off.

    I don't LIKE the idea of holding onto him. I hated that signing and was the constant basher of it from day one. But the word is out...he stinks! The Bruins will have to pay dearly to get someone to eat him, and clearly they don't feel the sense of urgency to do so or, as you note, they'd have paid up to do it with some of these teams that have space.

    End of the day I see him back here, sitting in the press box and/or playing in the A and collecting his check. They don't owe him NHL games and Cassidy has shown he'll sit him when he wants. So we're left to hope Sweeney feels urgency to add talent and thus free up his money, but if I was GM who just went as far as one team can without winning, not sure I'd feel all that much urgency.

    Sweeney should offer a deal for Slavin, saving him some dough, just to be a nice guy of course.

    Would Frederic be enough to get a team to take Backes? Marleau cost a 1st right? So have to imagine Frederic isn't enough...do we Sweeney giving up even more than that to move Backes?

    Beating a dead horse here but I don't see it. I'd love it, but I don't see it.

    No cap hit if it's in Providence.

    But like you, I don't imagine it's why they signed him.

    Providence has been awful for too long turn us into Hershey ASAP.

    We also suck at drafting from the CHL stick to NCAA and Europe where those kids won’t see Rhode Island for 4 years after they’re called by Donny.

    Give me a few more Gaunces.

    All a two-way contract means is different salary in AHL then NHL.

    Has no effect on cap, (waivers or anything else at all) unless AAV is over $1.075 Million
