EDIT: per Dreger, $5.5 million AAV

Beauner 03-15-2013 07:27 PM

Good for them. Solid piece of the core going forward.

Joey Moss 03-15-2013 07:27 PM

Nice news for Phoenix. I think he's a top 5 defenseman in the game right now..

EDIT - I'll guess 5.5M per.

McTank 03-15-2013 07:27 PM

Total stud

AfroThunder396 03-15-2013 07:28 PM

Great for Phoenix. OEL is a special kind of talent.

Agreed - wonder if they overpaid though.

timw33 03-15-2013 07:28 PM

Very astute move, great player. Probably in the 5M range?

Kershaw 03-15-2013 07:28 PM

Maloney will have him under 5. Book it.

TheJuxtaposer 03-15-2013 07:29 PM

Perfect. I was worried someone might pull a Shea Weber and offersheet him to something Phoenix can't match.

I Hate Chris Butler 03-15-2013 07:29 PM

5.25 per is my guess.

danishh 03-15-2013 07:29 PM

good news. Nice to know he's committed to the team even with the uncertainty right now.

Schenn Bros Pizza* 03-15-2013 07:29 PM

Stud. Would give so much to have him on Flyers.

TorstenFrings 03-15-2013 07:30 PM

YAY! Would have hated to see someone exploit the ownershipmess with an offersheet. Great great news.

TheJuxtaposer 03-15-2013 07:30 PM

Also, remember that this deal buys two UFA years, so it'll cost the Coyotes.

CAPiTA 03-15-2013 07:30 PM

I'm going to say this is going to be under $5million per, which will be a steal. Anything under $6 mil is good for this guy, he's a franchise type D.

Zubrus Coffee Maker 03-15-2013 07:30 PM

this should be a big one

WildcatMapleLeafs28 03-15-2013 07:31 PM

Total stud. Great move to get him locked up for 6 years. I'm going to guess 5.5 per.

StringerBell 03-15-2013 07:31 PM

Great job by Maloney, to no one's surprise.

I think the deal will look like Carlson's, but maybe a little more... 4.5 is my guess.

ronnyweed 03-15-2013 07:31 PM

5.5 good value

TheJuxtaposer 03-15-2013 07:31 PM

He'll get less than Karlsson. But probably not much less. Regardless, it's not like Phoenix is against the cap, so anything is good.

Ekman-Larsson. 6 year ext. 5.5 AAV

I Hate Chris Butler 03-15-2013 07:32 PM

5.5. That's great value.

Perfect. That's amazing. Makes him one of the most valuable players in the league.

roflstomper 03-15-2013 07:34 PM

Obviously a sign and trade to Toronto.

But seriously good for them and OEL, good deal.
