Nice news for Phoenix. I think he's a top 5 defenseman in the game right now..

EDIT - I'll guess 5.5M per.

Great for Phoenix. OEL is a special kind of talent.

Agreed - wonder if they overpaid though.

Maloney will have him under 5. Book it.

Perfect. I was worried someone might pull a Shea Weber and offersheet him to something Phoenix can't match.

Also, remember that this deal buys two UFA years, so it'll cost the Coyotes.

I'm going to say this is going to be under $5million per, which will be a steal. Anything under $6 mil is good for this guy, he's a franchise type D.

Total stud. Great move to get him locked up for 6 years. I'm going to guess 5.5 per.

I think the deal will look like Carlson's, but maybe a little more... 4.5 is my guess.

He'll get less than Karlsson. But probably not much less. Regardless, it's not like Phoenix is against the cap, so anything is good.

Obviously a sign and trade to Toronto.

But seriously good for them and OEL, good deal.
