Like, there’s no winger on the Bruins roster who’s likely worse than the ghost of Brian Gionta, right? He’s not actually upgrading anyone?

Maybe it's just for the taxi squad in case they have an injury. Better to have a guy and not need him then be caught flatfooted.

He's probably as good or better than Kuraly and Schaller.

sure make fun of the gionta signing now but when the bruins perfect their de-aging machine in time for the playoffs and put together a line of the 10 year younger versions of jarome iginla, rick nash, and brian gionta who will be laughing then

I dunno what the point of adding Gionta is but it's a pretty low risk move, and Bjork is out, so whatever.

For some reason Calgary signed Cody Goloubef to a 2 way, he was already playing for Stockton

He deliberately rejected two two-way deals earlier this year from Colorado and another unknown team to be eligible for the Olympics.

What are the bruins main roster weaknesses? Lack of scoring depth? Seems like these moves are incrementally positive on that front, but they don’t really make the Bs any scarier in my mind...

Well now they have Rick Nash so Gionta can replace him.

I'm still preeeeetty loving mad about that one. It's cool the nhl just allows duck dicks to blindside cross check people resulting in on ice injury and there are literal zero repercussions.

Like, even a bone stock 2 min crosschecking penalty would have been something
