Morning Free Association: Bye Bye, Mojo Jojo

News broke on Saturday morning that Bruins trade deadline acquisition and half of the Swedish House Mafia, UFA Marcus Johansson signed with Buffalo. While it’s not surprising that he was signed within the first full week of free agency, what is surprising is that it took nearly five days and that the term and money was reasonable.

Yeah, $4.5 million against the cap. It’s less than what he made last year. It was a totally affordable amount that the Bruins currently couldn’t afford. well, they could afford it if they knew they could shed the David Backes contract before the start of the season and perhaps shave off some more money off the cap. Don Sweeney doesn’t want to do that while he’s negotiating deals with his RFAs McAvoy, Carlo, and Heinen. Donny’s got a degree in Economics from Harvard, so I’m sure he’ll figure it all out.

We’ll miss you on that third line with Charlie, Mojo Jojo.

In other news: On Friday afternoon, word came that Danton Heinen was going to arbitration as he’s eligible and a deal between the two camps was not struck. I would bet that a deal will happen just prior to the meeting with the arbitrator.

Hi folks, happy Monday .

Shame to see Mojo go. Get those RFAs locked up and see who’s left on the market.

Well that’s a good price for a decent depth forward. Made a few mistakes last year I think but if he can iron it out he can be useful

Spent a week & a half in the wastelands, but I am back.

The browser at my desk logged me out, but it at least remembered who I am, as instructed

Do they still… play… hockey… up north?

At least I can take solace in the fact that the Bruins signed Maxime Lagace.

Hey All!
Great weekend up in the hills!! Spent yesterday on the river with Jo. My mom always says “if you’re born in Western Mass, you’ll never get it out of your blood.” Must be true as I’m in heaven up there.
Awww, Mojo. Buffalo is having one of those off seasons where it appears they are building a contender….. they aren’t. Sign who we need to sign. move forward.
Cooler weather….. nice!!!!

Really sad the Bruins don’t have $4.5 million to give Mojo. I liked Mojo.
