I agree with all of the above. Plus he will still be an RFA when it expires giving us another good shot at re-signing him into his UFA years if we desire.

An Anti-Howson signing.

I don't like your assumption. Care to make an actual case for it? Maybe there was a pattern of over-payment, I'll believe it when someone shows it to me.

Oh, and because someone has insulted Howson I must make my obligatory pro-Howson statement: If we didn't have Howson to pluck Calvert out of the 5th round, there wouldn't be a Calvert for Jarmo to sign.

Still no respect

Good on you Matty Ice. Nice job Jarmo. Is he still an RFA when this deal is done. Too lazy and tired to figure it out.

the letestu rule: if you don't outscore letestu you have to sign for less.

Thank God there isn't an Umbie rule

PS Major the above comments, as was the one about the Howson signing Calvert for 2.5 mill are sarcasm you should work on identifying it. Shows up a lot around here.

So refreshing to see these more "realistic" deals than giving a guy 12.8 mil over 4 years for a 30 game window.

Are you honestly arguing that if Howson didn't pick Calvert in the 5th round, Calvert would cease to exist?

No. We'd be unable to sign Calvert because he wouldn't be a Blue Jacket.

Why can't folks be impressed with JK's work so far without bashing Howson? It's really inappropriate, and it doesn't exactly do JK any favors w/r/t evaluating him. What he's done so far has been good enough without this kind of mishegaas.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

I like this signing. It also seems indicative that the upcoming reduction of the salary cap is having an impact on these new contracts. I'm sure JK is doing a nice job signing these guys but keep in mind we aren't talking about the top of the roster that will command big money. Great signing and still evident of the leverage teams apparently have on RFA's and their 2nd contracts. The Letestu deal still strikes me as a really good one for an upcoming UFA....
