Surprised he's signing it so soon after what Fletcher said about wanting to see him play a bit first, but I'm still happy assuming we got him for $6 million per or less.
Was Fletcher ever quoted stating that ? The only place I saw that mentioned it was Russo speculating. (Though I haven't heard any Fletcher interviews lately, so maybe he stated it verbally and I missed it).
Not surprising considering the cost to acquire him. I find it amusing that everyone in here is throwing out numbers like 5.1 and 5.5 though. Do you realize how superior a player Pominville is to Clarkson or Horton? If it's under 6M it's a discount to help his team be competitive.
While I'm glad that Minnesota tanked hard after the trade last year and finished at the bottom of the playoff pool, A move that was able to get the Sabres Zadorov with the 1st round pick acquired from Minnesota, I wish the Wild and Pommers all the success going forward.
I figure the deal will be right around the 6 million mark maybe a touch more. Anything less would be a steal after the Kessel deal.
