Corey, Ryan, you're both next!

EDIT: Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
5 years, $4 mil per across the board for Fowler and Ducks.

Woot. :handclap:

DuckshaveaRPG 09-15-2012 04:35 PM

Nice

c4rcy 09-15-2012 04:36 PM

Yay.

DuckJet 09-15-2012 04:37 PM

You guys are too fast.
Perfect length and price for Fowler. I was worried he'd ask for 4.5 and up

JabbaJabba 09-15-2012 04:43 PM

That's a fine price for him. Hopefully Perry and Getzlaf are next. Please Perry, stay please please please... Please. STAY!

DuckJet 09-15-2012 04:45 PM

I knew drafting him today was a good idea.

Fighter 09-15-2012 04:59 PM

:vhappy:

That could end up being one of the better contracts in the NHL, when Fowler really hits his stride.

DuckJet 09-15-2012 05:31 PM

Like Getzlaf and perry

If it hadn't been for the lockout, I'm absolutely certain we would have had to go over 5. Cam was looking primed for a breakout.

This pleases me

Is that avatar Duck drinking for lockout? Ducks performance? heart sadness? or just for fun?

Fowler signing:


Vinegar Strokes 09-15-2012 06:10 PM

Wonderful news! 6 more years of Cam at a great price.

Right. This signing only happens at this point, and at this price, because of the lockout. People will make comparisons to Carlson's contract, but there are factors to consider: First, Carlson is 22, and was a 2008 pick. He has two years of development on Fowler. Second, Carlson's contract begins this season. Fowler still has one more year on his ELC, which also means he had one more year to increase his value.

Subban falls into the same category that Carlson does. He's an older prospect, further along in his development, who is leaving his ELC years.

Gibson Les Palms 09-15-2012 06:44 PM

Wow! I'm really happy with this deal. Always nice to lock up young, offensively gifted dmen. Cam is such an important piece.

DarthYenik 09-15-2012 06:53 PM

Great news. Cam has a bright future, and I'm glad to see him stay for a few more years.

:laugh: You could thank Fowler and his agent instead, if that feels better.

Haha. It actually crossed my mind as I was typing GJ Murray.

2faded 09-15-2012 07:15 PM

I want to watch some hockey now! :(

Paul4587 09-15-2012 07:18 PM

Awesome deal, Fowler is probably worth close to that already. Defensemen with his kind of upside that have shown so much potential at 20 are very rare. I wish we could have gotten Getz and Perry signed too.

I popped in Game 1 of the Ottawa-Anaheim series a few hours ago. I'm up to Game 4.

A mixture of boredom from the lockout and for fun. :laugh:

Sojourn 09-15-2012 07:44 PM

I assumed DVM was driving you to drink.
