I blame Jarmo and Test Tube's agent.

Yeah, two pages of breaking forum rules:

Ironically, that post breaks a rule of its own. Lighten up Francis! The mods know when to bring us back in line when we run too far astray. Just killing time until we can start kvetching about the terms of the contract (which should have happened six hours ago!)

“@Aportzline: As reported last week, #CBJ and Mark Letestu close on a multi-year contract extension. Not done yet, but could be finalized any day now.”

Now back to the OT.

“@Aportzline: Told Letestu's cap hit will be $1.25M per year. So, it's a two-year, $2.5 million contract. He would have been a UFA this summer.”

Great deal

Not sure how we got him for that cheap. Hell, Boll and McKenzie are at a million. Interesting.

Glad to see he is around for another 2 years.

Letestu easily worth 1.25 mil per season in my opinion. Great deal for both parties!

I'm not sure it was a great deal for Letestu. I wonder if this was the Jackets were looking for a one year deal and he wanted a longer term for some security. He was probably motivated to stay here because of the role he has been given.

Either way, not too shabby for an non-drafted player.

He was only making $600k this year, so that helped keep this under $2 million a year.

I wanted to trade him because I thought we could get a really good return, but I am more than happy to keep him with those numbers. IMO, that is one of the best contracts in the NHL now.

I agree, but I think he could have gotten a lot more as an UFA.

I'm consider Letestu mighty overrated in these parts but that cap hit is a borderline rip off for him. I'm happy he's coming back at that price.

Long term bottom six two way player that can provide secondary scoring and is good at killing penalties while filling in on the top six in the event of injuries or poor play? Nope, I don't think he's overrated.

What do you think people think of him to suggest he's "mightily overrated"?
