Secured a solid key piece for the long term, price is good, term allows protection for Little plus the Jets have options to move him in several years if that works best for them.

Not concerned for the term personally, he should be a positive player in his mid thirties and by then the cap will make his salary very manageable.

I'm worried about the term. We are seeing more of this league turning to a young man's game, with players signing big deals right off their entry level deals (just to name one example). Little will be 30 in a few months, a 6 year extension kind of scares me, especially when I also look at the term on Perreault's and Byfuglien's contracts.

But c'est la vie, I am happy Little is staying for now, IMO the most underrated Jet since the return.

Jets now have $46.5M committed for the 18/19 season. Leaves $28.4M (plus cap increase) to sign Ehlers Trouba Morrissey Lowry Dano Armia Hellebuyck (Enstrom?)

Really like this deal. Not worried about the term at all and the annual is a bargain in relative terms.

Length is always scarry when a guy is going to be 30 when the deal starts, but given the state of the market the deal is a very good one.

Chevy locks up the top 2 C for $11.4M. That is outstanding. Even if Little slides down to a top-end 3 C, this will be good value with a higher cap.

Chevy doesn't get near enough credit for his ability to negotiate good deals.

While he may overpay depth positions he more than makes up for it in his ability to lock in impact players at team friendly values.

Only about $500k increase from Little's previous deal.

This is great

Solid AAv

Term is ok, he deserves it

Jets 2c for 3-4 years

Last 2-3 years he will probably slide to 3c which is ok.
Veteran player , 2way depth that. An win face off , not offensively black hole and good defensively.

Jets need depth when they are taking a run at playoff success

Their window is actual this year and the next 4-5 years.

Must have wanted to stay in Winnipeg for the glory days. I'm sure Habs and Rangers would have been ready to pay closer to 7m for him in free agency

If the NMC/NTC terms (if any) aren't onerous in the 2nd half of that deal, that's a fantastic contract for a player that's still arguably a 1st line centre (or high end 2nd line centre) on many teams.

If the NMC/NTC's allow for movement later, then you can deal with cap issues at that point. Interested in seeing how the contract is structured.

Overall, very happy with this.

Ah: should have read a little further into the thread. This is great - there's an opportunity to move him later on. I have to say though: bad luck getting injured != injury prone. He was pretty much an iron-man prior to a couple of questionable hits/plays by opposing players. Perreault? He's what I'd consider injury prone, not Little.

I guess it's true. Players don't want to play in Winnipeg

Superb deal. Locking up both centers is huge & price is definitely right. 6 years is perfect; don't expect Little to decline as fast as some, but even when or if he is bumped to 3C, price will be right

Yeah it's not that bad which is why I'm only a bit worried. That bit is because injuries can slow you down no matter what way they come.

The Maurice extension must be what did it. They all love Maurice. Now that he's locked up for multi years, you'll see more players jumping on board the Maurient Express. Trouba's just champing at the bit, I expect.

I'm not very concerned about the term. Little strikes me as one of those guys who ages gracefully. I think he'll still be capable of contributing right till the end of the deal. He's smart enough to figure out ways to compensate for the effects of age...
