I know alot of teams were hoping for Kelly to hit the open market...
Agreed. As a player, Chris Kelly is a pretty hard player to dislike. He does all of the little things that people claim they want out of their players.
The contract is higher than one would like, but, we're talking about a $2.1M contract. The salary was never going to be much less than that. People are quibbling about a couple of hundred thousand, as if it makes or breaks the team.
He's a solid utility forward. With as much youth as we'll be breaking in our the bottom two lines in the coming year, he will be an important player to have.
