I was expecting him to get anywhere between $4m and $5m, so $4.5m is a really nice number to me. Term pending, but I can't see it being really bad TBH. Unless it's a decade deal(unlikely), thumbs up from me. Our defense is a lot more durable now.
Wow, very surprised we signed him at all after seeing our CAP situation, but I'm very excited to see this guy in a Canuck uniform.
Its a pretty good signing, I was convinced that if he signed here, it would be for at least 5M per year, But know that we got him for 4.5 it makes the Manny Malhotra slight overpayment all the more acceptable and this also means Bieksa among others could finally be out of Van city.
