J.O.B. & His Sick Flow Re-Sign In Ottawa
Good news for Ottawa barbershops today, as Jim O'brien and his sick flow will be staying in the city for 2 more years after the restricted free agent forward signed a 2 year extension. The deal is a 2 year, 1 way deal that will pay him $637,500 per season, which is a solid deal for the Sens in my opinion.
Though he only played 28 games last season, putting up 6 points, the 2007 1st round pick finally broke through and showed some of the potential many thought he had. His physical play and compete level made him a regular down the stretch and in the playoffs. Let's hope he can continue his development and fulfill the great things once predicted for him. With this signing it always certainly closes the door on any hope of Winchester's return to the club.
