Smart signing.  I hope Havlat gets healthy and turns it around.  The skill is still there in bursts.

Boyle wasn't that good in SJ last year after suffering his concussion.  He's probably got another two years in him, especially if he's protected as a PP specialist.  Given the minimal size/term of the contract, this will probably be a fine signing for the Rangers especially cause their PP has been a struggle.


That Bolland deal is the first really bad contract.  I've yet to see a deal that really shocked me though (other than Erhoff in the opposite direction).

Good for Fayne. He was a nobody 4 years ago. The Devils sucked and he got a chance to play and now he's got a multiyear multimillion dollar deal.

 

Agreed.  I was a huge Fayne fan.  He's proven he's belongs in the NHL and now has a chance to prove he's a top 4 dman on an up and coming team.  I hope he continues to excel.  I wanted him in SJ but think this is a better spot for him.

At the very least, the Bolland contract will be a gigantic win for the advanced stats community. Every GM and owner should be asking themselves "what happened?" when he is fvcking awful right away.

 

It was funny listening to Simmons and Dellow going at it on the radio today. If no one heard about it, they should search for it on twitter. As dumb as Simmons is, when you think about the buzz Bolland is creating and how little Gabrovski was getting last off-season, well more GMs are agreeing with Simmons and missing the point completely.

 

You can hear it here:

 

Real heated argument starts at 7:10 (about 3/4 of the way through) about Grabovski

If I'm Fayne, Edmonton is exactly the place I'd want to be (given the team on the ice, not so sure about the organizational incompetence).  He deserves a solid top 4 opportunity, and he'd be the best dman on their roster.
