B's Sign Satan
Bruins signed 35-year old Miroslav Satan to a prorated contract of $700K ($350K cap hit). Clearly, this means bench time for Bitz/Ryder/Wheels/Sobotka. According to what KPD has written, Satan & Chara (both Slovaks) are BFFs.
Quick, non-expert analysis: a proven power play scorer, hopefully he will give a little spark to the team. He doesn't seem to get injured a lot, and took getting demoted last year in Pittsburgh pretty well. This isn't the 1999 version of Satan, so I'm not expecting too much. He played for a bit with the Islanders, look for Mike Milbury to have something to say about this.
