That's a heck of a team Winnipeg is putting together. Amazing offence on the back-end, solid top-6. Great scoring wingers. Lots of talent all over the roster.

UFA vs RFA. Very different animals. And let's give Karlsson a chance to repeat his performance before we gush about how amazing his contract is.

This happens. Every. Year.

Everyone is all optimistic that they can pick up a bunch of starts in the next UFA class, but they all get locked up.

I either wanted Enstrom locked up, or traded before a Suter / Weber situation arose. In Chevy I trust - his moves have been quite shrewd, IMHO. Very good signing, and very good numbers.

Not seeing the amazing.

Good offense on the backline, but suspect defense from the group. And since their job is defense, that is worrisome.

First two lines should be good if they have chemistry. Could be a problem if there isn't chemistry or they have even one injury; not enough offensive talent on the team to compensate.

Pavelec is an above-average goalie, could be more. And the backup is not by any means a proven quantity. If his form dips and/or the backups don't exceed expectations, there's trouble.

Not to mention an overall lack of organizational talent/depth. Their prospect pool is not stocked, even by those who see it more rosy than most.

They could surprise, but unless a lot changes there is a good chance they won't. Not for a while at least.

Great deal for the Jets. The casualties are the "Offersheet Enstrom!!!1!" threads that would have grown everywhere like mutant dandelions next June.

Pretty much the perfect price and term imho. GJ, Chevy.

He's a great player but he's an even better person.

He's a class act off the ice.

I agree with the sentiment, but no one would ever say "offersheet Enstrom" because they wouldn't be able to. He was already outside of his RFA status and was entering UFA.

Some were making they claim they would simply sign him next offseason, so I agree with your ideology that we spoiled that party.

That's kind of much for a guy who hasn't done a lot.

Maybe I'm just mad because that guarantees my team will have to pay Letang 6+. Oh well.

I usually don't get upset by ignorance, but that's almost beyond stupid.

Yeah, it's not like he was a top 10 defenseman in scoring in 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 (beating Letang both years), then still top 30'd while missing 20 games this year. While also being very good defensively. It's not like he's good on both ends of the ice and is consistent year after year.

...Wait.

Also yes, you'll finally have to pay Letang real money, the writings been on the wall for awhile with that one.

Enstrom/Bogosian
Byfuglien/Trouba
Stuart/Postma

Looks like a hell of a Dcore if they can keep them together. The team's in dire need of a #1 C (Kane could eventually crack 50g alongside a true playmaker) plus an additional RW on one of the top lines.

Agreed. Add to this Dennis Wideman at 5.25mil....Subban is going to cost us in this crazy market.

Anyway, congrats Winnipeg as this is a solid one, and at a reasoneable price (in today's market).

Toby is one of the most consistent puckmovers in the league, while playing above average defense. Should return to 50 points if healthy. Seems right that he gets more than Carle.

I really shouted out a "YES!" when I saw the headline

Very cool. I think the contract and cap hit is great for us. He would get more as an UFA next year. 6+. I love Cheveldayoff for his offseason moves.

very good draft overall
Giving good contracts to:
Jokinen
Ponikarovsky
re-signing Wellwood
not re-signing Mason
re-signing Pavelec
re-signing Enström

Get Kane locked up for 5 to 6 years and it's an A for his work.
