Cramarossa has been on an AHL deal and playing for the WB-Scranton Penguins the past 2 seasons. Having recently traded 2 centres for 1 (and a half, I suppose, in Bjugstad) in return this just provides emergency depth up the middle. It’s only for the duration of this season so nothing lost really, and in the AHL he’s likely not making much more than he was on his AHL-only deal (tho we can never know for sure as those deals aren’t made public usually). ??♀️
If anything, I think this deal is about the WB-Scranton team who are in a tight playoff race in the Atlantic Division at the moment. This basically prevents other organizations from poaching him and adding them to their team for the AHL stretch run.
