What are NHL fans saying about the Boston Bruins signing Trent Frederic

This will be a sign and trade. It is a waste of a $2.3 million cap hit.

I expect Trent Frederic to do more this season with that contract. Fair number but he is just an ok player.

Happy he is back with the Bruins. Frederic will need to produce more to get more on his next contract.
