Calvert resigned for 2 years

Way to go Matty!

Dude is thriving in this environment - whenever he and Cam are on the ice together they create havoc for the opposition.

Heart and Soul of the youth movement. Fantastic news.

This pleases me.

That's a great one.

Excellent choice Matty. He will be worth far more than what we are paying him over these next two years.

This is good news and well deserved. He can play on a lot of different lines, IMO, with the way he plays. So, if we improve our top 2 lines he has the ability to move down which not all players do.

Another good deal by Kekalainen.

nice deal

Think this will be looked back on as a home run deal. This kid has great flexibility in line play, and has shown a great ability to get to net and finish. Should be a double digit goal scorer this year if the NHL don't make a couple of questionable calls on replay. I'm gonna call him a 20g scorer in a full season and paying 950k for 20g a year is a steal.

Agreed with all comments. Great signing. Now wrap them fingers in some duct tape and get back on the ice! LOL

Kev22 04-23-2013 11:30 AM

I really like this signing. The good news is that Calvert's production was better than Atkinson, so you're likely going to get Cam on a deal very similar. Save the cap space for a top six left winger and to re-sign Bob.

Great signing. Good work by JD and JK.

blahblah 04-23-2013 12:15 PM

Good news, good numbers.

kingofpuck 04-23-2013 12:17 PM

Fantastic signing. The kid really deserves it!

Robert 04-23-2013 12:31 PM

This was a no brainer for CBJ management... he's been the CBJ spark for 2 months.. I wish he could play the remaining two games, if not the playoffs I hope he takes up where he left off before getting that finger broken next season..:handclap:

KingBob 04-23-2013 02:33 PM

Nice signing. Good work by JK!

jacketman10 04-23-2013 02:35 PM

Hells yeah. Matt Calvert is a great player, imo. Small and determined. Love the tenacity and fire that he shows shift to shift.

Cyclones Rock 04-23-2013 04:08 PM

$1m average. Wow. Letestu signed for a $1.25m/avg. Jarmo must be one hell of a negotiator.

I expect Bob to sign for no more than $1.5m/yr.:laugh::laugh:
