Love it for 2 reasons. It shows JJ's heart for the club to take a 7 year deal at what i see as a discount, and shows DL's loyalty to Jack to give him a lengthy contract like that, showing he isnt trade bait

Its a great deal with the right kind of structuring. It gives JJ the confidence to know that the team is committed to him and gives DL a similar reciprocal confidence as well. Its a discount if this year's offensive production is any indication of what JJ is capable of in years to come. It allows JJ to mature and places a premium on future years when JJ will be expected to be as strong defensively as he already is currently demonstrating he can be offensively.

It will certainly end the incessant JJ and a 1st for _______ talk.

It just as certainly tells DD08 what he should expect, whether a little more or a little less, who but DL knows?

Way to go DL, and props for CBGB for being on the money on this one.

Lets just make sure nobody asks DL anything about Red Berenson and the U of M hockey program anytime soon!
