4.5? Good deal. I think Whitney has another 1 or 2 good years in him.

Huge price - but love seeing Dallas throw their hat in the ring.

Good stuff.

Good signing for Dallas. They still need another top-six forward to even think about sneaking into the playoffs tho.

Probably will. Whitney-Benn-Ryder as the first line and Morrow-Eakin-Eriksson as the second line.

He's gonna be a really good fit in Dallas. Surprised he left Phoenix. He was such a good fit. Guess the ownership issues make it a little hard to commit to the team. Never thought he would sign with Dallas though. Thought he would end up somewhere back east.

He's already won the Cup, I bet that it was based on term. Not many teams were likely going to give him 2 years... mind you that was the justification on the last go around when he signed with Phoenix.

Money is no issue for Dallas right now. We need a top 6 guy who can stay for a year or 2 until our prospects develop.

Perfect stopgap. Perfect top 6 need. Even if he slows down the contract won't hamstring at all. Great signing.

Yeah, that's a terrible deal for the guy who was 13th in scoring last year.

So there's one less team likely to sign Andrei Kostitsyn...

Good signing for them...jealous...but I think $4.5 is wee bit of an overpayment.

This will be regretted by the stars. Have had a soft spot for Ray since I first saw him play in 95, but he's too old for a two year deal and the money is ridiculous.

How are people saying this is a bad deal? He had 77 points last year.

Great for Dallas! Would have been a great stop gap for Rangers...

Wanted the Bruins to take a stab at him, but not for that money.

Have you guys paid attention to free agency at all in the last couple years? The contract is fine.

Dallas overpaid unless Ray has the kind of season with PHX in his final year.

Dallas has a lot of legit top 6 wingers in Morrow, Benn, Erikkson, and Ryder but still don't have the right centre. Not to mention they just traded away their first line centre from last season in Mike Ribero.
