Found August 09, 2012 on 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. — Dan Cagen (@DanCagen) August 9, 2012 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...

Travis Yost: Bobby Butler Signs With the New Jersey Devils

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- According to reports from Danny Picard at Comcast SportsNet, it looks like former Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Butler has found a new team to skate with next season. Picard suggests that the deal Butler signed with New Jersey is a two-way contract, which makes Lou Lamoriello's most-recent dice-roll far less risky. Butler's...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils Sign Bobby Butler to One-Year, Two-Way Deal

Yesterday afternoon the New Jersey Devils dipped into the unrestricted free agent market and signed one of the better UFA's, at least in terms of potential, remaining in forward Bobby Butler. Here are my thoughts on the signing. - 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...

Zack (Smith) Attack Went Off Track

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...

Roger Mussa: Butler the new New Jersey Devil

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...

A Thought On Comps

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...
