sens have signed Bobby Butler
« on: March 28, 2010, 08:03:57 PM »
Ottawa Senators closing in on Bobby Butler, who led NCAA with 27 goals. Think they will beat out NJ, VAN and PIT for him.  This was copy and pasted from CBCs Elliot friedman via twitter.   seemed interesting seeing as we need to start rebuilding our forwards with alfie not getting any younger.

CONFIRMED.

Former Marlboro High hockey star Bobby Butler has agreed to a contract with the Ottawa Senators. The University of New Hampshire forward and Hobby Baker finalist will join his new team on Tuesday when Ottawa plays in Washington.

The Senators, who are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, have six regular-season games left.

Butler, a senior forward and tri-captain at UNH, was not drafted by an NHL team, so he was free to negotiate a contract with any franchise. He is expected to join his new teammates tomorrow.

Butler was named the Hockey East Player of the Year and recipient of the Walter Brown Award, presented to the best American-born college hockey player in New England.

Butler, who had 50 points during the regular season, helped UNH reach the East Regional final where the Wildcats were defeated by RIT on Saturday. Butler scored twice in UNH's win over Cornell in the semifinals.

Good signing.  Wadda ya figure, he would have been a 2nd rounder this year if was in the draft.  :icon_hiding2:

Glad to see he is on a 2 way deal to.  Winchester would have benefited from some playing time in the AHL, and from what I have been reading it would take a one way deal to sign Roman Wick.

Depending on how training camp goes next season, Butler would either play for the Senators or their AHL affiliate...

Nice when you can pick up these guys, pretty much a free draft pick.  Guess we'll have a look at him but I won't expect much.  He probably starts the season in in the AHL next year.

I don't see him playing tomorrow. A few days of practice and play against the Canes rather than the league's powerhouse. As for who's spot he takes, I hate to see it since he's been quite good the last 3 or 4 games, but I think Winchester sits a game or two. Unless there's a nagging injury or two we don't know about.

Shannon had a run-in with Clouston, literally, today at practice.  Apparently knocked the coach flat on his a$$!   :fear:  Shannon said he couldn't stop in time.  Hmmmmmm............................

Methinks Shannon might take a seat!




(Although Clouston was laughing about it at the media scrum afterwards! :nod:)

I would hope a coach would be able to laugh about that stuff.  If he got all serious and benched him because of it, he shouldn't be a coach. :)

Also, do you think locker room pranks should be limited to players only? :)

An accidental collision is one thing but it depends on who the coach is if you're going to pull a prank on him.  Most it's probably wise not to.

This prank you were talking about. Did it involve slipping a number of pills and/or powders into Coach Clouston's coffee?
