Tom Pyatt, 25 years old, who is playing the hardest opposition on his team, 34.7% offensive zone starts for 46% offensive zone finish.
Cap hit this year: 525.000
Cap hit for the next two years: 600.000
Seems like a very good move. Pyatt is not an offensive juggernaut but, looking at this, seems like he is not only a good defensive player but he can actually move the play in the right direction wich is a very valuable and underrated asset for a fourth liner. We could seriously use something like that to take some load of Plekanec, I'm sure he would appreciate not having to start 60% of his shift in the Dzone and it would show in his offensive output.
If that's the kind of moneypuck move he's going to make, I'll have a lot of trust in him.
Usually a bunch of small but smart moves beats a big stupid one. I think a moneypuck approach would be great, especially when I look at clubs like Phoenix and Vancouver and what they've done using advanced stats and all.
