I thought they would have made a little show out of his signing with a press conference etc so it's a little underwhelming just to hear "he's signed" and it's all over. Never had any doubt he'd sign though.

He really doesn't strike me as a greedy guy just after the $$$... I get the vibe that he genuinely wants to work hard and make it at the NHL level and show what he can do. Very dedicated and focused player on the ice.

Can't wait to see him in the lineup and I have the feeling every one of the Oilers elite players are going to feed off each others energy and talents and push each other higher and higher. Should be a fun decade ahead of us.
