With all the moves Florida has made, that 2nd might not be as early as we think.
It was definitely a player-friendly day, with lots of cash tossed around at 2+-liner, role-players and depth. It helped that Florida had to spend its way to the floor, and Buffalo's new ownership definitely opened their vault. The Canadiens give Erik Cole $4.5 mil over 4 years. Roman Hamrlik gets $3.5 per over 2 years.
The Jagr deal looks much better through this lens. I'm okay with Lilja as a depth guy for fair money for a 6th-7th Dman. Talbot is a shocker, and I'm surprised, too, that Holmgren deals Versteeg away.
The big-money signings, to me, also put the Bryzgalov contract in a better light.
