The Thrashers sign Trio in hopes of toughening up

The Thrashers went out an signed a pair of decent players and one who has been plauged with injuries for several years now. The Thrashers signed free-agent forwards Eric Boulton, Ramzi Abid and Scott Barney on Monday.

Boulton, who was a buffalo sabre, had only five goals but 511 penalty minutes during the 2000-04 season.

Abid had 13 goals and 10 assists in 49 NHL games with Phoenix and Pittsburgh (who he ended the season with).

A back injury kept Barney out for three seasons. He returned to play five games with Los Angeles during the 2002-03 and had five goals and six assists for the Kings the following season, the last before the lockout. I am not quite sure why they made this pickup he hasnt played for several years now

    Abid had a pretty good season with the Pens in Wilkes-Barre(55pts. in 78gp) but I’ve yet to see him really perform in NHL. When he played in PGH he went out with an injury soon after he arrived….he was supposed to be something special but I guess we’ll see.

    Toughening up by signing Ramzi Abid???!!!

    While he may be the 19th highjacker, he is definitely not a “tough guy”.

    Praise Allah!
