Guys, lets not forget the cap is going up and he made 3.75M last year... how much more of a discount did we expect him to take? He would have gotten at least 4M on the open market, probably 4.25M.

So, looks like were signing Stuart. Id be happy if he signs for 3.5M, but Im hoping for an even 3M--It would not surprise me if we end up paying 4M though.
completely agree. He would have made over $4 mil on the open market. Is he worth $1 mil more a season than Murray? Yes? Does he improve our top 4? Yes. Does he improve our PK? Yes. Is the deal completed and announced by the Sharks? No. So do we know the final details (i.e. NMC)? No.

So lets wait for the freak out and DW bashing until we see what the final deal is. Better yet, let's wait to see what DW does at the draft and who's left on the team after...
