I like it. Not too much to spend on him, now he just needs to keep up the play from last year.

seafoam 06-28-2012 01:09 PM

Good deal! :handclap:

CapnCornelius 06-28-2012 01:09 PM

Finally, a reasonable contract that doesn't overpay based on "potential."

:handclap:

cslebn 06-28-2012 01:15 PM

Excellent signing :handclap:

Hooks 06-28-2012 01:15 PM

MOD please merge with other duplicate thread.

thanks

candyman82 06-28-2012 01:17 PM

That's about what I thought arbitration would do. I like it

Its a good contract for Nik, maybe not overpayment, but I think its generous for a guy with 1 solid season under his belt. I'm happy, I was waiting for this piece to fall in place as I'm sure we all were.

blahblah 06-28-2012 01:20 PM

No issues at all with this deal. Term and money seem about right to me.

ClevelandJacketFan 06-28-2012 01:20 PM

Sweet!

Two years of affordable, young, solid top 4 defender is a huge plus.

Mayor Bee 06-28-2012 01:22 PM

The way the market for defensemen has gone in the last 5 years, this is an outstanding deal.

1857 Howitzer 06-28-2012 01:22 PM

Great deal.

GoJackets1 06-28-2012 01:22 PM

Great deal.

But Methot makes 3 mil? :shakehead:

Socks 06-28-2012 01:24 PM

Nice! Great to have NikNik officially back in the fold.

bizzz* 06-28-2012 01:26 PM

Great signing.
Now going to the main boards to find out how much the Jackets overpaid.

Viqsi 06-28-2012 01:30 PM

Hallellfreakingluyah! I was actually expecting a copy of the Marc Methot contract. This one is absolutely freaking awesome and I love it love it LOVE IT.

So far the folks on the mains have been universal in their praise of the deal.

Aweomse signing for you guys! :handclap:

(I'm secretly cheering for you guys to get good again. The big brother always wants to beat up on his little brother, but supports him otherwise. That's kinda how I feel about the BJs. Don't tell the Preds fans though, they'll hate me forever)

Sore Loser 06-28-2012 02:07 PM

Good dollars for both sides. Hopefully his solid play keeps up.

CBJWennberg41 06-28-2012 02:08 PM

Me like.

CBJSprague24 06-28-2012 02:13 PM

We'll take it! Good deal.

FANonymous 06-28-2012 02:16 PM

Fantastic. Lets hope Nikki6 continues to play at a high level. Hell with any luck he just might progress too.

RDriesenUD 06-28-2012 02:40 PM

Good deal. I am happy about it.

IBleedUnionBlue 06-28-2012 02:43 PM

Good news! I am hoping that he can continue to play like he did for the CBJ in 2011-12.
