Discuss, I'm surprised at how short the term is.

Duchene signed to 2 year deal

Quote:
The Colorado Avalanche signed forward Matt Duchene to a two-year contract on Saturday.

Colorado's first-round pick (third overall) in the 2009 Entry Draft, Duchene has recorded 150 points in 219 games during his three seasons with the Avalanche. The Haliburton, Ontario native was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy in 2009-10. He followed that up by becoming the youngest player in franchise history to lead the team in scoring with 67 points in 80 games during the 2010-11 season.

"Matt is an important part of our team," said Avalanche general manager Greg Sherman. "We are excited to come to terms with him and we look forward to seeing him at camp."

Duchene, 21, was selected to his first NHL All-Star Game in 2010-11 and became the youngest player in franchise history to reach 100 career points, doing so at the age of 20 years, 10 days on Jan. 26, 2011.

Duchene was limited to 58 games due to injury this past season, tallying 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points.

I am not surprised how short it is. He sort of had a bad season, this contract gives him 2 years to prove himself to get the long term big dollar deal while Colorado doesn't have to pay him at a rate like Tavares

I am guessing he gets about 3.5-4M a season in the meantime

It's not surprising. Duchene had a bad season and it's good to see that Matt accepts the challenge, he wants to prove himself too.

Great signing by the Avs

Surprising term, considering how much he valued being with the Avalanche when he was drafted.

Maybe they're not as high on him anymore? Hard to imagine why they wouldn't be though.

Duchene is coming off a much poorer season compared to expectations (70-80 points), so probably wasn't getting that great of an offer for longer term.

This will give Duchene the opportunity to prove to the Avs that he's worth more money.

Since it's short I'd assume the number to be pretty good for the Avs.

Shorter term so he can prove himself, and he'll still be an RFA afterwards. Now just have to wait on the numbers. He had a really bad year but he's obviously talented.

2 years because he's had an off year. Seeing how Jones got 4m I'm going with 4.75-5.25m.

Given how poorly he played for large stretches last year, both Duchene and the team probably were OK with a shorter term deal. Duchene wants to prove that he can play at a high level and earn big dollars and the Avs want to see more before committing.

Some risk on the Avs end that it could backfire and his salary could skyrocket, but worth it to avoid overspending.

RFA vs UFA....what Jones got has nothing to do with Matty.

Yeaaaa I'd call that a good deal for the Avs

It's pretty much a 2 year "show me" contract. Also makes him a very good trade asset.

its the standard sherman/avs RFA contract. Only paul stastny got a long term big money deal and that was became he was coming off of two high scoring seasons and our GM was giguere. This is the same deal that pretty much all of our RFAs get.
