Pontus Aberg is a terrific name.

His nickname is "Pilot."

Bruins have signed Brian Gionta for the rest of the season.

I was going to joke about how dumb this is... but he did score 35 points last season for the Sabres. That's not awful. Could still be a decent 12/13th forward I guess.

It sounded like Chris Kelly might be signing with the Ducks, now that one is dumb.

Apparently Ray Ferraro was going on about how bad Gionta looked at the Olympics. Might have been on OverDrive

That'd be surprising because he was defending him on twitter.

Maybe it was someone else. I recall the comment was about how slow he looked out there after someone made a comment that the Bruins might sign him. The effect of they must not be watching the same games...either way it wasn't a glowing report for him.
