Happy Bobby Bonilla Day everyone.  Today, just for waking up, Bobby Bo received 1.19 million dollars from the Mets, a team he hasn't play for in over 15 years, and will continue to do so until 2035!

Yeah but they also have Mattias Ohlund's dead contract on their cap so they actually have more like $6M.  I wonder if we could trade for that, at least.  

 

Ohlund, Carle (15% retained salary), something good of theirs for Ruutu (who they would then buy out if they had any arbitration cases - if not NJ will pick up 50% of his salary).  Let's do it Shero.

No no no no no no no for Carle. He's useless.

Lots of talk about who is not going to be back, makes for an (hopefully) interesting free agency period starting tomorrow.

I read somewhere that Shero said we would be pretty inactive, mostly targeting Group 6 guys :(  *sigh*

I was looking at the available free agents, and I was kind of unimpressed with the list, unfortunately. 

Me too, it seems like such a dry/weak year.  I mean, we're getting all excited over guys like Frolik and Belesky.  Nothing against them, but they're not exactly coveted forwards by most standards.

Havlat, Ryder, and Sal are all UFA aren't they? This is to give guys like Josefson, Matteau, Boucher, etc playing time. Let's see what they have.

I thought Havlat was UFA cuz we only signed him to a 1yr deal if I remember, but I thought the others weren't.  I could be wrong, and if that's the case, then it's not as bad I suppose.

 

I am all for giving those guys more playing time, but in the case of Josefson he was pretty much a regular for most of last season anyway, so I still think we would be thin.
