In Response to Re: Jeremy Reich!!!
Reich is a PBruins signing which was needed. For those who don't like this type of player and think they are gone the way of the dodo bird , your opinion was taken into consideration where it was thrown out with the garbage. Check the UFA signings where you'll see that NHL GM's think this type of player is still needed during the regular season. If you are squeamish with this type of activity during a game go to the souvenir stand to buy a pink hat or grab a drink with an umbrella in it.

Yes, let's look at those UFAs.
Boogaard, NYR: 57 games, 6:09 TOI, 0 goals, 4 assists (Minnesota: 13th in conference)
Shelley, PHI: 57 games, 7:06 TOI, 2g, 7a (Rangers: 9th in the East)
Konopka, NYI: 74 games, 8:08 TOI 2g, 3a (TB: 12th in the East)
Ivanans, CGY: 61 games, 0 goals, 0 assists, (LA: 6th in the West)
Looks like of the 30 NHL teams, four signed goons.
Meanwhile, the other 26 teams didn't sign McGrattan, Koci, Boulton, or Barch.
I don't think that's a ringing endorsement for goon hockey.
