July 1st FA signings so far

What's with these long contracts continuing? Brutal

Hossa - 12 yrs? Guy pulled a disappearing act in the Cup final. 4 years from now Hawks will regret this deal

Ohlund - 7 years? Can you say Wade Redden?

Kudos to the Canucks for re-signing the Sedins to a shorter deal like the Flames did with JayBo. Gillis and Sutter aren't getting caught up in these stupid long term deals. Also kudos to New Jersey for a short deal with Johnny Oduya under 4 million per.

Brian Burke? overrated, 4 years for a guy who can't skate? good on ya Burkie

The Ohlund contract should be fine, it might be long, but it's only 3.75/yr.
Won't be nearly as bad as the Redden contract

Hossa 12 Yrs? Now they have 2 bad contracts in my opinion with Campbell and now Hossa. There going to have to open the wallets up for Toews and Kane next year. Not so much the money but the length.

For all those still complaining about Sarich's cap hit, take a look at Spacek's new contract.

Here comes an interesting one:
Oilers have apparently signed the Flames' nemesis Khabibulin.
