Easy now....let's wait until the terms are released. If Kesler is getting around $6M with NTC, then I'm not so sure you'd be uttering the same sentiment.

It's driving me mental not knowing what his new cap hit is right now.

I'm betting it's around $4m. This is Gillis we're talking about here.

My honest feeling is as long as it's not in excess of the Twins' contract, I can live with it. We have to keep Kesler, the guy is such an important part of the team. That said, I obviously hope its a bit less to make the cap situation more manageable and I'm confident in Gillis' and Kesler's ability to do that.

Am I crazy or was word not out that they'd broken off talks until the season was over? Gillis is a sneaky little devil. Glad to see the core of this team is locked up long-term now.

Maybe this means it's time to end this "Captain Luongo" joke, and finally name someone captain who can actually wear the "C" on his jersey.

Canucks are in talks with the league to allow goalies wear letters starting next season.

He's not a Canucks fan. He doesn't wish the team well because it makes it less likely that his favourite team (our divisional rivals) can do well. I don't take that as trolling.

The fact that he sees the Canucks as the strongest team in the division and the newly locked up Ryan Kesler as a big part of that is a compliment.

ANYWAYS, to keep things on topic - as the games have gone by this season I've found myself hoping that Gillis could get a few years from Kesler for under $4m, then under $5m, and finally realizing that it might take up to $6m a year to keep him around - certainly he'd go that high on the open market.

I'm hoping that the contract comes in somewhere between the reported initial offers on each side, $4-5m. That would be a steal at this point.

Luongo is long term
Kesler is long term
Sedins are long term
Burrows is on a 4 year contract
Samuelsson is on a 3 year contract

All we need to do is sign up some key defensemen.

All is a good day!

Another example of how Gillis manages to keep his dealings quiet in a hockey mad market. I'm quite amazed that so little leaks out and usually the stuff that does is wildly inaccurate.

Not to mention we have both Schroeder and Hodgson on ELC's...offensively this team is pretty deep right now.

Yeah totally. It makes me laugh knowing ecklund had a blurb yesterday about Kesler going to the Leafs for Kaberle.

That's a $4.92m cap hit. Well done, Mike Gillis.
