what Tallon another great move at excellent value? People need to shut up about him trying to prove himself already. Tallon is golden.

So with that said, do you think this was the plan all along, to offer protection? How off could this deal have been from the get go? We all had him penciled in at 4 years at 4.5-5.0Million.

The number one thing Versteeg wants is a NMC. Poor guy had a brutal year and a half -->chicago-->toronto-->philly-->florida

Great deal.
I was expecting him to get something similar to what Flash got last year and this is pretty much identical. Good to see Versteeg getting signed without having to go to arbitration.

No, that's cutting it too close to the wire. And again, if some team sheeted Versteeg then we'd match if the deal were even close to being reasonable.

If not, take the multiple first round picks.

So does this put Weiss at around $4.5 - $5 million?

No. He's barely worth what he makes now.

you and your brother have a vendetta against him. What is it about him that you dislike? He is a good 2nd line center.

I think Weiss' new contract will be in line with his linemates ~ 4.5M per. It won't be less, and shouldn't be appreciably more.

I agree. He is a good 2nd line center. I cannot wait for the day when this team doesn't have to throw him into a spot he doesn't belong. There is no reason to pay him more than the 4.25 he makes right now. That was my only point.

Exactly what I was thinking - right around what his linemates are getting would be fair for Weiss. He's worth more than the 3.1 he's getting now, that much is certain from what free agents have been getting lately.

3.1? Did I confuse his with Booths old one?

Yes, you are thinking of Booth (who makes 4.25M). Weiss makes 3.1M.

Sweet! I was hoping something would be worked out before arbitration. Perfect contract.

No.

He deerves the exact $ for flash and versteeg; no basis for a penny more.

I screamed 'YES!!!' when I heard the news earlier this morning and did a fist pump. People in my office probably thought I went insane I thought it was a very fair deal. Not too long or short and so glad that it didn't go to arbitration.
