Nice!

Dude is thriving in this environment - whenever he and Cam are on the ice together they create havoc for the opposition.

Excellent choice Matty. He will be worth far more than what we are paying him over these next two years.

Think this will be looked back on as a home run deal. This kid has great flexibility in line play, and has shown a great ability to get to net and finish. Should be a double digit goal scorer this year if the NHL don't make a couple of questionable calls on replay. I'm gonna call him a 20g scorer in a full season and paying 950k for 20g a year is a steal.

Agreed with all comments. Great signing. Now wrap them fingers in some duct tape and get back on the ice! LOL

I really like this signing. The good news is that Calvert's production was better than Atkinson, so you're likely going to get Cam on a deal very similar. Save the cap space for a top six left winger and to re-sign Bob.

This was a no brainer for CBJ management... he's been the CBJ spark for 2 months.. I wish he could play the remaining two games, if not the playoffs I hope he takes up where he left off before getting that finger broken next season..

Hells yeah. Matt Calvert is a great player, imo. Small and determined. Love the tenacity and fire that he shows shift to shift.

$1m average. Wow. Letestu signed for a $1.25m/avg. Jarmo must be one hell of a negotiator.

I expect Bob to sign for no more than $1.5m/yr.
