Yup, very nice! Let's see what the terms are like. I love the fact that it's 4 years. Hopefully O'Reilly's deal is something like that as well.

God that was a quick post. But yep, very excited. Deserves that long of a contract no doubt.

Deal takes Johnson to 28 when he'll be eligible for UFA...best yrs ahead of him
If everything works out, that next contract when he's 28 is for a boatload of money and some Norris nominations.

He gets to enjoy the next 4 years playing with great talents such as Ryan Wilson and Shane O'Brien, must be pretty excited.

Like the term, lets see about the money. Not more than $5 M and I'll be happy with it.

I highly doubt it's for over $5 million. I would say average of 4.5.

I do too. $4.5 is likely the sweet spot. I wouldn't throw a fit if it was something like $4.8 M, that's what I meant.

I wonder if this is what Dater was referring to yesterday, as far as more Avs activity.

He's said many times lately that extensions with ej, mcginn and ror were close.

Wish the deal was longer. I hate seeing our players become UFA'a at the end of contracts lol

That is either a poor deal for EJ or a poor deal for the Avs. I would have liked shorter term. He still hasn't proven to be anything more than a top 4. Either he will take the next step, and it is a poor deal for him, or he stays where he is at and hopefully for the Avs it is less than 5 mill. I am not a fan of rewarding player for potential, or paying money for what you hope he becomes. Again, hopefully it is less than 5 mill.

He would be a UFA at any contract you'd want longer than 4 years...
