I think they saw what happened with Nashville and Suter (and Weber) and decided to lock things down.
I agree with you but that has to do with the Jets. Not Enstrom. I'm just saying that if this turns out to be a bargain contract then he probably could've gotten much more by waiting to hit FA. If he really wanted to come back to Wpg then he could re-sign with them after being traded to another team. So it's from Enstrom's pov but let's wait to see what the cap hit is.

Agreed on both accounts.

5 years 30 Million is my guess because round numbers are the best

Had a bit of an off year judging by his previous point totals, but not having to trade him for futures and picks is going to fast track our development as a team a good amount.

No way it is under 6 mill per year, only chance is if Corky Thatcher is his agent ?

At (the very) least 5.5M/year and well deserved. Any team would love to have this guy.

This was exactly what I was going to say. I think the Jets proved this season that they are the real deal(you know, since most said we wouldn't win more than 20 games) and that Winnipeg is indeed a mad hockey market - of course there are still a few naysayers but maroons will always exist.
This "nobody wants to play in Winnipeg" crap is old and tired and downright untrue.
Great move for the Jets. Very happy. Next up: Evander Kane.

Yeah, I'm dieing to see the dollars and how the 5 year deal is constructed.

Also, interested to see what kind of signing bonus money he'll receive as with the new CBA coming up and the common belief that the players will have to take a pay cut. Signing bonus money is not impacted by that pay cut, so most players have been trying to get "guaranteed" money when signing/re-signing recently.

Overall just interested to see what they gave him. Anything under 6 is a steal IMO.

You guys really don't like your beat writer do you? I can relate as an Avs fan. Though I don't quite understand how there aren't more of them considering how much of a hockey city Wpg is.

Has nothing to do with his nationality. My take is that he wants it done to avoid media attention/pressure. Greedy players (not all of them obviously) wait until they hit UFA status to cash in.

nooooooooo!

I was hoping Flyers could pick him up at the deadline if the Jets weren't in a playoff position.

Anyway around 6 mil per would be well deserved imo if you consider the other contracts being signed. I think he's underrated by many for sure.

He's terrible (Lawless).

I don't mind a reporter named Ed Tait. He's been around for a long time and was reporting back when Jets 1.0 existed.

But somehow Lawless ate his way to being the face of the Jets. It's an embarrassment.

Damn I was hoping The Flyers could land him. He would've been a great replacement for Timonen. Good move for Winnipeg.


Edit: I'm gonna guess 6-7m anything less is a steal...even 6 is pretty good IMO.

Something I wrote a while back about Enstrom:

Quote:
  • A healthy Enstrom is a Top 10 offensive D-man who can QB the PP and move the puck out of the zone.
  • He plays a solid defensive game - he's not big, but he is smart and doesn't panic in his own zone.
  • He's coming off a bad year - only 0.53 ppg, compared to 0.71 and 0.61 ppg in the two preceding seasons respectively.
  • He's heading into the last year of his contract earning $4.5 million (cap hit: $3.75 million).
  • He's a UFA at the end of the season and if he were on the UFA market today, he'd probably be looking at over $6 million/year on at least a 5 year deal...and that's a wildly conservative estimate.
To compare offensive contributions:
- Garrison's best ppg is this year's at 0.43
- Carle = 0.46
- Wideman = 0.56
- Suter = 0.58.

So Enstrom's "bad year" offensively, is better than Garrison and Carle's. His good years are better than all of them. He probably better defensively than all of them except Suter.
So I'm guessing $6 million AAV...and agree with everyone who's said that anything less is a steal.

Enstrom's contract will probably be the standard to which Gillis and Edler refer. I hope Winnipeg's GM did well.

Congratulations to them for locking up a great defenseman. I remember that quite a few years ago, Enstrom was considered the most underrated defenseman in the league. I've always liked his game. He's definitely not underrated anymore, as everybody knows he is very good.
