You called it, and it really pumped me up as well. Letting Mark go, I felt, was the biggest mistake we made going into this off-season, but we quickly rectified it. Heck, we picked up Markov to go along with it .

I am interested in the length/value of the contract, but regardless, its good to see Poile bring Eaton back into the fold. Its also good to know that Suter doesn't have to play top 4 minutes as a rookie unless he excels, a la Hamhuis of last year.

We may be frugal, but man we have a fast, hard-nosed, scrappy little team. People are going to have to out-work us to win, and I like our chances in the effort department!
