Sammy was a good acquisition at the time. It certainly seems that two years and $2m/per would have made better sense. Or even 1yr.
There was no adjustment phase, as he's been a wing before obviously and therefore knows the systems.
A right-handed shot we needed for the power play point.
Swede background with Canadian light edge.
He's actually done well this year. I used to worry every time he got the puck, but now he is much more composed and makes pretty good passes and pretty good decisions. Certainly has more patience with the puck than Tafar for example.
He is a versatile depth signing. He can play third line grinder, be plugged into the second or even first-line in a pinch, and be plugged into fourth line minutes.
It wasn't a bad acquisition, it was just the contract itself that was poor.
