The 6th Sens:
For all the Skelleftea hockey fans out there, my heart goes out to you because Bobby Butler, "who has scored wherever he’s been", is not coming to an arena near you. Well, that is unless you're a Swedish hockey fan who lives in Newark.
Just confirmed that #Marlborough's Bobby Butler has agreed to 1-year, 2-way deal with Devils. Will sign it later today or tomorrow.

Assuming this rumour is true, it reminds me of a quote from Butler's agent, Neil Sheehy. "You have to look at teams that are looking for extra forwards and where he fits. The team has to have a vision. We might believe the team has the right fit, but the team might not have the vision."(Using computer to look at New Jersey's roster on Capgeek)Hmmm... Does Jersey have a need for forwards? Check. Where does Butler fit in? He's cheap and he plays forward. With an owner in Jeff Vanderbeek who is reportedly still $20 million short on his rep...

- For those of you who have followed me on twitter and my articles here throughout the summer, you'll know that I really like Butler and think...
Reports have Uncle Lou and the New Jersey Devils and Bobby Butler have agreed on a one year deal.
Reports are it is a two-way deal still pending confirmation.
Interesting move, perhaps another diamond in the rough such as Ryan Carter and Steve Bernier. The two-way gives much less risk and tells me Uncle Lou is not done adding pieces... perhaps Petr Sykora.
Butler, which Todd...
With much of the offseason’s attention naturally being devoted to Ottawa’s reputable prospects, established stars and the new faces that have come into the fold, it’s easy to forget about some of the less-heralded players, like Zack Smith, who are expected to fill out the team’s bottom six.
2011/12 was quite the Jekyll and Hyde season for Smith and maybe it was to be expected...
It's been quite the offseason for Erik Karlsson. Between winning the Norris Trophy, inking a new seven-year, $45.5 million contract and getting married, everything has been coming up aces for the Senators' defenceman. With such an impressive string of good fortune, I suppose it was only a matter of time before Karlsson took the next step in his development and maturation...
