I sure hope this was MacT's first negotiation, seems like an odd signing to be making the day before free agency.

Last year's 2nd rounder. He is back to the WHL this coming season.

Well, there goes Schultz' roster spot

I think Musil is someone who will start to make an impact in year 3 of this ELC. He needs time, but I have high hopes for him.

He had a good season and has been developing well, he likely goes back to the WHL, but nothing wrong with this signing.

Well he was already Oiler property, he was a 2nd round pick a year ago. However getting him under contract is a good thing, very solid prospect. Here's part of his bio from Hockey's Future:

Talent Analysis
Musil boasts good size, is near NHL ready as a teenager, and is a strong character-guy. Primarily considered a shutdown defender at this point, he has good puck skills and an offensive side that could evolve over the next few years, however it is unlikely he will be a big time scorer at the NHL level. He plays a smart, contained, physical brand of hockey, boasts NHL bloodlines (son of Frank Musil), and has a skill set that should translate incredibly well at the pro level. He has had some issues with injuries in junior, which is never good, however has thus far avoided anything too serious.

Future
We could see him patrolling an NHL blueliner sooner than much of his draft cohort. He doesn't need to add size as his frame is NHL ready, nor does he have any glaring weaknesses in his game to correct. Perhaps more importantly, Musil is a physical, stay at home, defensive defenseman, a role not found in abundance on the Oilers pro roster or in their prospect ranks. He will likely turn pro in the 2012-13 season and could be in the NHL as a regular as early as the following year.

For the rest of it: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/david_musil/

Watched him yesterday and he is a pretty good skater, I think he will end up being a top 4 shut down guy but with some ability to move the puck.

Smid is a much better skater, but Musil is improving.

He won't play with the main club for several years, if at all. However, signing a draft pick to a contract is always good because it shows the organization is sufficiently happy with his progress that they are willing to pay him money (I believe there are signing bonuses he receives even if he never plays for the team). It also means the player wants to play for the team, which is the case 99% of the time anyway. (A 1% example would be someone like Schultz, who for some reason does not want to play for Anaheim).

Ummm...how about Frank Musil as a comparable. They're actually very similar players.

More physical than Smid, but not as good a skater. Not sure but I think he might be bigger than Smid too.

Same height supposedly but Smid has 26 pounds on him.

Nothing earth shattering with this signing, but I definitely like it. Musil is a tank and I look forward to watching him develop.

Someone called him Derian Hatcher-lite potential?

I'd prefer that, but with a heck more skating.

Why?

Honest question as I really do not see any pertinence to the signing and free agency stuff.

Yea, did they really have to sign him now and lock up one signed spot in the 50 limit? Couldn't they wait?

As he should be going back to juniors, his contract won't count against the limit.
