Brent Seabrook re-signs with Chicago (5 years, $29M)

Per Bobbie M:

CHI and defenceman Brent Seabrook on verge of finalizing big contract extension, hearing 5 years at a shade under $30M.
Overpayment?

That is an absolute horrible contract if true.

Was just about to post this.

Now I dont get to feel special for starting the thread.

On a serious note, I love Seabrook but I think 6 mill is a little much, however its not terrible. Guess this will put the rumors/proposals to bed.

IMO, that's too much if it's true.

Oomph. I like Seabrook, watched him play since he was in Junior B.

Seems a bit rich.

YES! Chicago gets more bad contracts. Someone tell the GM his only lines aren't Kane/Toews/Sharp with Keith/Seabrook, you got 3 other lines, 2 other d-men pairs and a goalie situation.

Way much. 5M should have been the limit in my eyes. Look at Buff's deal.

5x5 would be more fair, 6x5 seems like an overpayment.

Six years at that dollar amount would be fine. Five years, no.

Yea, looks like Doughty will be getting close to $8 million based on this contract

If Seabrook signs, would that also mean another mini Chicago fire sale in the offseason?

First dibs on Bolland, Brouwer

He isn't worth close to that much. I think, realistically 5 years, 20 mil would be solid.

Jack Johnson's extension looks like a bargain compared to this if true.
