Murph is like a Hawk. Stays quiet all summer, then BAM - scoops everyone on the news.

Not like they'd trade him anyways.

One of those NTCs that both sides are perfectly fine with.

I remember being at the game (vs Minnesota) when he signed his last contract and they announced it after the game in a Murph interview. Burrows scored 2 goals, we won 4-2, the crowd went crazy for Burr at the end.

Atta boy. Favourite Canuck.

Good he's a Canuck.

Very, very bad his new deal has a No Trade Clause.

apparently gave up a year of term for the NTC.

Term is so reasonable I'd argue it doesn't matter.

Very, very glad he's going to stay a Canuck for the next 5 years.

I wouldn't say it's bad at all. He'll be 36 by the time the contract expires, so it isn't like he'll be dead weight by then. It's a very very good deal.

Perfect contract for a heart and soul player who is responsible for several clutch plays for this team.

$4.5m for a guy who's averaged 29 goals a season over the last four years - to say nothing of the other aspects of his game, which are considerable - is great value. Very happy, NTC and all.

Edler front has been strangely quiet. I wonder if Gillis and Gilman believe that it's more beneficial to sign him after the new CBA. Hmm.

Like the cap hit and term, not a fan of the NTC but not surprised (they hand NTC's out like glow sticks in a dance club)

Awesome. Sweet deal for all. I just realized how I was taking the last deal for granted. Also I can't believe it was 3 1/2 years ago when he signed it. Time flies.
