    One year, $750K per the NY Post, so he qualifies for the burying cap rule ($900K, give it take).

    his contract is a complete waste of paper and toner and nothing else.

    He’ll probably get claimed by the Islanders at some point this season.

    Agreed. Why even bother with this guy? He's useless.

    I don't know. Either Gorton actually thinks he's a good player/presence who is worth having in the lineup, which is scary from a talent evaluation perspective, or perhaps he had no other options. Much as I wanted Hartnell or Winnik, they may not have wanted New York given where they are in their careers. It's hard to say. Regardless, I don't understand this. Not with Beleskey under contract. He can actually play hockey.

    Maybe Hartnell follows? Is there some kind of Nashville connection?

    I mean why? There's definitely better available. It's not a cost thing. I hope he doesn't make the team and is taken behind the shed to be put down. I really disliked what I saw from him last year. Even his fighting ability was bad.

    I'd argue the sole use for this signing is the "Who's protecting these kids?" argument. The Leafs carried Matt Martin for that; the Jets had Thorburn, the Predators carried McLeod for a few years for this sort of thing. You'd prefer the Alex Killorns, Antoine Roussells, etc of the world, but hey.

    Not really something you think about in today's NHL, I guess, but still pretty standard practice.

    B-b-b-but he can't even fight anymore
    I'd rather any one of the remaining guys. Fuck I'd rather that piece of shit Rinaldo.

    Why not Mashinter, Stewart, Winnik, anyone?

    Martin was huge deterrent especially from the press box. McLeod isn't going to deter shit, are we back in the late 70's? Nobody is afraid of this guy.

    That's not entirely true, though. It's financially irrelevant, but he's horrific in all three zones at, you know, playing hockey. If he ends up playing a good portion of games and ends up running shotgun to someone like Andersson, that's going to negatively impact Andersson's growth.

    And you're probably fighting more often against guys trying to make a name off yours.

    Hockey is for everyone, even if you have pink skin.

    This. McLeod is bad at hockey. An odd 5 minute stint in the penalty box does nothing for this team. Any night he gets a sweater means a kid is not playing.

    OK, I think I'm done. It's just mind boggling.
