I'm not a Tyutin fan in the least - I've stated that before a number of times, and I'm sure if you look back on a lot of threads, I've been complaining about him.

That being said, this statement is completely true. Whether or not we think we could have "nickel and dimed" Fedor down on this deal, he has been our most reliable, productive defenseman for the past couple of seasons, and there's something to be said for that. Not to mention, he's willing to sign on with us for 6 years - to me, that says he's a guy that's committed to being in the mix, and committed to making this team a contender.

Players don't sign on long-term with teams that they see no future with.
