saying timonen's deal is rotten at this point is conjecture, plain and simple. fast skaters tend to have a longer shelf life than bruisers, and timonen is likely to maintain at least a semblance of his current level of play well into his 30s.

all i can say right now is this: Kimmo Timonen is without a doubt our BEST defenseman right now and 6.3 is more than fair.

in the future, who the hell knows? we took the risk to sign him long because otherwise, he might have gone to another team. homer seems a tad (generous) reckless in some of his gambles, but i admire his commitment to making this team competitive. could you imagine how poorly we'd be doing if we did not sign briere, timonen, hartnell that offseason?
