YEEESSS!!!!! Thank God Gillis was able to pull this through. I really couldn't care less about the cap hit at the moment, 6 years is is the main thing. Pay him whatever you want Gillis, this guy deserves every penny of it.
YES!!!!! What a fantastic way to start my day, SUCH good news. Ryan Kesler is a beast. 100% work ethic, leaves nothing on the ice, plays the game hard and comes through in the clutch. And if it is at a $4.5m cap hit, that is just insane. Personally, I'll be happy for anything $5.75m and under.
