Edmonton gives Andy Sutton a $1.5 million after he was a healthy-scratch twice last week (with that defense corps). One of the reasons Tambellini gave in his press conference was "he likes the direction of the team". The same reason was given when Belanger got 3 years on his contract last summer. What a hilariously inept franchise that is.
It wouldn't surprise me to see Hal Gill land a 3-year contract from Edmonton if in the summer he calls up their management and says he likes where the team is going
Souray has put together a decent season this year : 18 pts, +11, 20 min/gm
Didn't he start the year on a ridiculous pace or something?
I remember Don Cherry singing his praises, calling himself a genius again, but he hasn't mentioned his name since he started to cool off. Still a good year considering he nearly matched his AHL point total from last season.
Good post. This was exactly the reason why i did not like the Gorges signing - like you mentioned, he will probably break down halfway through it.
So let's see, Boston managed to sign a guy that, by all accounts, is the same as Gorges, for 3 less years and more than half a million less per year against the cap. Gauthier
How will he probably break down? He'll be 30 years old halfway through the contract. Rob Scuderi signed a contract when he was 30 with the Kings, he's the same type of defenseman and same size as Gorges and is still playing over 20 minutes a night.
