Good to keep him. Mixed feelings about the length. On the one hand, he's UFA at the end of it. OTOH, because they didn't buy UFA years, he's going to have a lower cap hit than he would've on a longer deal.

But they may need to replace him next year and I expect that won't be trivial.

He must make 100% of his last contract, though.
actually, he has to be qualified by 100% of his last contract. but they could have ageed for less as well.

I know, according to #HFHabs, Pierre was chasing thunderstorms yesterday and tanning on the other day. He's a busy man indeed.

That's what I gathered as well, and I expect him back at the same salary.
Like the contract, we need some physical players that can score, and Andrei is one.

Hopefully he gets some consistent linemates this year. Whether its on the 3rd line with eller or pleks and cammy on the first.

Good to keep him. If we can find a new top 6 forward, having him on a third line with guys like Eller, Desharnais, and/or Pouliot would give us nice depth.

Very close to my guess, which is a raise proportional to the % raise in the salary cap (if any raise at all).

Good. No matter people say, we need players like AK.

One thing, don't play him with Gomez no matter what.

Everyone of us who called that he'd be re-signed, that is.

Yes! Go Andrei! Let's just hope Martin leaves him on a productive line

I'm obviously very happy! Good work, and one year isn't too much of a risk.

Gauthier is still behaving like Gainey on speed.

3.25? Fantastic! I was hoping he'd get around that, great deal for both sides.

Reminds me a lot of the Ryder situation. Been offered in proposals for 3 years, disappointing production, signs for 1 year before UFA. Next year he's gone after another average season. Someone will overpay for him next summer and we will all move on quickly.

You wann give Inconsistin a long term deal?

His value now is about a 6th rounder.

Could have given him 2. That would have given us about 90-100 good games from him.
