Stars sign LW Blake Comeau for 3 yrs at $2.4 million each

Postby Troy McClure » Sun Jul 01, 2018 11:11 am

Here's your Roussel replacement. 32 years old. Three seasons at $2.4 million each.

Pretty safe to say this means two things:
1) Not getting Tavares
2) Nill thinks the big pile of young forwards he has aren't all that good.

He's a ok bottom-six depth guy. Probably paid too much, but wouldn't read more into it than that.

I mean, I guess I’d rather give Comeau a spot than Elie or Ritchie or whoever, but I’m not terribly impressed.

Too many years for a player like Comeau.

Comeau instantly becomes the best #14 in franchise history.

Comeau basically slots in to Roussel's spot on Faksa's line... physical, fast, PKer, scores more than you'd expect. But three years? Not sure about that.

If he's basically Roussel, why didn't we just resign Roussel?

Also, I thought Dickinson or whoever was supposed to slot I to Roussels role. This is another point in favor of their shitty drafting.

He's a million bucks cheaper, but it doesn't look like the cap room is going to be put to use.

This is a good signing, just as Pitlick was. It helps the PK, depth scoring, and the man hits at a greater rate than Roussel which will meet Monty’s quotient. Still need a 2c though. Spezza should go play overseas.

The real question is, what number will Jamie Benn switch to?

More statistic fun.

However, this chart is incomplete because there's no bar for Good In The Room or Grit/60.

That’s a move you see from someone who has no confidence.

No confidence against the Jets in a 0-5 game? No wonder he was on Nill's short list.
