Important cog in the system to keep.

I should add that I am always fascinated when signing an injured player to an extension. Is it because he was around and could negotiate or was it an incentive to rush a player back? Some players side with caution on contract years.

Sarah McLellan speculates Maloney signed him to make him a more attractive trade chip. Makes sense, i think Maloney sees that offense is needed right now. Plus, Rundblad, Stone, and Summers have all looked good.

Another Excellent value signing by Maloney. Even though Schlemko is injured he looked very solid this season when he was healthy, I'm very excited by this signing.

With that said, i have to pat myself on the back here. I always knew he had it in him, even when everybody hated him and wanted him benched so Lepisto could play, i saw something in him....as evidence of my "David....Freaking....Schlemko" thread that i caught some heat for.

Schlemko has routinely met or exceeded expectations throughout his career. Very underrated player.

He's a chip but needs to play to get some real value.

Rundblad/Stone/Summers have all been tolerable at times. None have stolen a spot which is what we need at this point. Someone who's going to make a statement about being part of our long-term core. What we are getting are guys who are content with just fitting in. We need more. We expect more.

^ I agree with this. Anyone know the timetable for Schlemkos return? We could sure use him right about now.

Phoenix Coyotes sign David Schlemko to two-year extension

Quote:
“I think I do fit in here,” Schlemko said. “It has been frustrating with two kind of really freak injuries, but this one isn’t so serious. I’ve already been back skating for a week and just kind of chomping at the bit to get back in there.”

I'm definitely interested in knowing why Schlem signed this now. Considering how he was playing last year and this year before his injuries I'd think he'd want to get back, show that level of play for the rest of the year and maybe get a little more than what this deal is worth. Maybe it's erring on the side of caution as you said, but I can't imagine he would have gotten much less even he got injured again. Regardless, I'm very happy to have him locked up for the next couple years on a contract I think is still great bang for buck on what he brings.

Really hope MacLellan is wrong with the speculation this may be to try and trade him. Not impressed with any of the young guys to where I'd say I'd want them over Schlem at this point. Maybe that happens down the road, but not yet.

Cap drops significantly next year and the danger is Schlemko wouldn't be anyone's first choice and nobody having cap room space to accommodate him.

Glad to see this signing.

hbk makes a good point about him needing to play to increase his value, though.

Timing is odd. I guess him being down with an injury and being so affordable makes it an easy signing. Have to get OEL done. I'd like to think that the league recognizes his value, relocation or not, to any potential owner.

"@azc_mclellan: Tippett also figures Schlemko is at least a week away. As far as what Tippett had to say on contract extension..."

Assuming its a 1-way deal, getting $1.2m/year guaranteed is a pretty good increase for Schlemko personally.

He's been solid for us. He was playing very well before his injury last year and this year's injury. There are other defensemen I'd like to see us trade before him.

I didn't think they would sign anyone until they had OEL locked up due to the new salary cap. I like Flemko, but it's still an odd time to sign him.

I get the feeling more than anything else that this means Summers days may be numbered with OEL, Yandle, Gormley and Schlemko on the left and Michalek, Rundblad, and Stone on the right and Klesla playing either side.
