He has to play wing or maybe we could use talbot as trade bait.

That is a totally reasonable contract. Good one for Homer... I'm kinda shocked.

Not bad at all. I don't care if it's five years. At a sub 5m cap hit? When he's 37, he'll be a solid 3C. That cap hit will still be worth it at that age.

Exactly. 4.7 mil for 5 seasons, him being 38 at the end of the contract. He can retire also earlier.

This is a good deal people.

Talbot's a winger. Schenn will likely move to the wing. Vinny's a good faceoff guy, taking him out of the dot would be stupid considering it was a big problem for us last year outside of Giroux.

As long as Schenn gets moved to wing and Couturier is not touched, this is a FANTASTIC deal.

Actually, they seem to think the franchise is doomed and this is a terrible signing.

This is actually one of his less painful moves. Even if he Brieres out, he'll do it with the cap higher than it currently is and with a lower cap hit to boot.

Wow nice contract. It's cheaper and shorter than Hartnells isn't it.

100% agree. Vinny barely played with Stamkos and St. Louis if Im not mistaken. Give him some better players and he will easily be a ppg player.

He's a very good player. Bank 60 point upside for awhile. Had for cash. If you don't like this signing, I'm wagging my finger.

Vincent once told Peter Forsberg who once told Bill Clement something about Gagne.

Would imagine they're at least on good terms.

I wonder what the Penguins are going to do against this:

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Lecavalier - Simmonds
Gagne - Couturier - Read
Rinaldo - Laughton - Talbot

Instantly improves our veteran leadership. Instantly improves our offense. INSTANTLY IMPROVES OUR EVEN STRENGTH OFFENSE. Instantly improves our depth. Etc. The wins on this are just awesome.
