Battaglia signs two-way, two-years

Maybe he can regain his form and crack the line up, that would be nice to see. We all seem to forget about him, and his once 20 goal-player status.

    This is old news…..He signed this deal and JFJ announced it on Leafs Lunch back when they inked John Pohl to a 2 year 1 way contract…..I do like the fact we will actually get the opportunity to use Bates next season though…

    Are we seriously going to post people articles about 2 way deals?

  3. Farva says:

    This is a good move by JFJ , but couldnt it wait until after you sign someone who will actually have an effect on the lineup?

    Maybe Bates can find his old form under Maurice, but in the meantime I would love to get some progress on this Peca/Carter/Roberts situation.

    Unless the guy is going to be playing with Erik Cole and Rod Brind’Amour again, I can’t see him hitting 20 goals. I remember watching him in Colorado, and he was just not very good. Not one of Lacroix’s better acquisitions. I think he can be a decent checker, but that’s about it. The type of player that the Leafs can throw on the PK now and then.

    Leaf fans rejoyce the senators have lost another key component of there team. Havlat is gone and so are the chances of Ottawa winning a cup anytime soon. so happy!!!

    Sorry, I didn’t know this was already announced. I just wanted to comment on the face that we always seem to forget about him and what he could still possibly offer to the big club.
