    Good.

    Now go out and sign Jimmy Schuldt to go along with him and I will be ecstatic

    Did Krug lose a year off his contract?

    I find it very hard to believe they move Krug, but with Grizz' emergence, Moore on the team for the foreseeable future, Chara probably coming back for another year (who knows?), and McAvoy probably being ready to take over top PP I think it would be worth it to take a look. Not to mention Vaak/Zboril/Lauzon all LHD and in the system.

    Krug makes us a better team when hes in the lineup, but if we can get a top six forward in a package for him then I'm in.

    On topic - i like the signing. No downside.

    Elite Prospects has a “Rumor” note attached to his page with today’s date saying that the Habs are rumored to be signing him.

    Let’s hope that’s false.

    He went to their camp last summer. They tried hard to sign him then but he decided to return for his senior year

    I've got just a couple of minor negatives.

    No need to go into detail. Nothing that really concerns me as maturity and good coaching will work it all out.

    Gotcha.

    Maybe that’s why it’s “rumored” he will sign with them?

    Mark Divver tweeted the other day that the B’s were supposedly interested in UMass Lowell LHD Mattias Goransson (just turned 24 last week) if he decides to turn pro. Don’t know anything about him, except for the stats and that he has some size (6’3”, 205).

    Schuldt also shoots left and is 6’1”, 205. I can’t imagine Boston would sign both, but who knows?

    From the “I had no idea” category...I didn’t realize that former Laffs 1st round pick (25th 2011) Stuart Percy was acquired by the B’s ten days ago in exchange for Austen Fyten. Percy will be paired with Cooper Zech in his pro debut tonight.

    I may be off but I believe that was a Kaberle pick the leafs used to get Stuart Percy? God bless Toronto

    Good that Zech can pair w a veteran in his first game

    I suspect Percy won't have a long if any NHL career but I will say this: if there is a partner I want working with young players at a lower level Percy is high on my list

    Zech comes as advertised, smooth skating, moves the puck,makes the right play and is tiny,he's been smoked 4 times already in this game,bounces right back up

    Nice to add some talent like this for free, great sign by Sweeney. I am surprised this kid was not drafted or signed sooner. Another guy I would like the B's to sign is Luke Philip the top player in Canadian University hockey this year with the Alberta Golden Bears. Usually Canadian schools don't produce too much NHL talent, as unlike NCAA in Canada these are mostly guys who finished their Junior careers and did not get drafted or signed and decide to go to school to get a degree. There have been a few that have made it though, I remember Mike Ridley from years ago was pretty good.

    IIRC I thought that Wheeler was drafted by another NHL team but waited out the two years and then the B's signed him as a free agent? Going to look it up.

    I believe Percy had a couple of apples last night in the win over Lehigh Valley?

    He did.

    I'm not sure he will make it in the NHL but he will be an excellent AHL'er.

    I saw enough of Percy in junior to know that he's an extremely intelligent player and a student of the game. He has superb leadership qualities. I can see him one day having, not a head coaching career but a defence coach.

    It's really too bad the tools to match his smarts aren't there, at least IMO. But he can teach and I think he will help the youngsters develop and understand the game better.

    I don't like comparisons, but I think for the large part, McAvoy does more better. But I think there is one or two areas that Schuldt has on McAvoy.
