Welcome back Saku

At least one more year of veteran experience and huge leadership.

Any details on how much he signed for? Will be happy if he is making less, will be mad if he is making the same.

The numbers should came soon. Ducks just announced that the job is done and Koivu is staying. I expect something around 1,5 - 1,8M

Well, we're losing 4 million worth of cap hit from Blake's contract. It's just a 1m $ raise.

I'm glad to have him back! But we still need a true 2nd line center. I can see Koivu being a 3rd liner at best at this point in his career.

$3m + bonuses? He got a raise...

Anyways, could be worth it if Teemu signs with him. Our new 3rd line!

Gotta love Saku. Someone rip that "C" off of Getzlaf and give it to Saku.

Wasn't Saku somewhat opposed to playing third-line minutes?

For 3M i`d play even 4th line minutes...

I guess this contract works up for last one, which was really good for us imo.

Good, surprised to see the raise but he's worth 3 mil in today's game.

I'm glad to see him back. His raise is only .5M but I'm surprised Bob gave him that much. I was looking for more like $2M. Not sure what to read into that money wise for the rest of the offseason.

I think in an interview late or after the season he spoke of his desire to stay and contribute next year even in a changing role. I read into that he was OK moving to the third line.

I love Saku and surely want him on this team. But I want him as our 3rd line center and for about a million cheaper.

Barstool Bob...

3 mill seems a little steep for a 3rd liner. But I'd rather pay 3 million for a veteran center anchor than 2.5 for a complementary winger with phantom upside.

We need the leadership and I can consider it payback for underpaying the last contract.

A little surprised about the raise, as well, at first thought. Then again, his last deal was a bargain, and you can't really argue that he isn't worth $3M. Plus the cap's been rising, which makes up for more than the $0.5M raise he got. And, well, we all know about the quality of this summer's free agent market, where Saku would have been one of the best three centers available, so this kind of works.

Great guy to have, to say the least.

Yeah actually the supply and demand part is a great point. He has a lot of leverage.

Agreed.

FA status may also rise his money up a bit.
