Excellent signing. Souray is leaving one way or another I'd say.

Edit - possibly looking sketchy for Sbisa as well. You'd think they'd want Vatanen over one or both.

Good stuff. The guy has really impressed me this season. I think he'd be capable of handling a bigger role if we ever need him to as well.

Very good deal. Fistric is capable #6 with added nastiness.

Let's hope he wears it ironically, and not because he starts to look like a traffic cone on the ice.

Love it. He's deserved it with his play this season. Helps that he crushes opposing players every game.

I gotta think perhaps this is a sign that Souray's done, as in his career outlook isn't so good. I read an article that he avoided this surgery because he was worried it would be career-threatening, won't be surprised to see him spend all of next year on LTIR.

Still means one guy probably has to be moved. Obviously having 8 defensemen is a great problem to have, but combined with the fact that there's guys in the minors capable of stepping up, the best course of action is to move someone.


Anyways, as for Fistric, I really like the deal. He's definitely earned it, showing that he's a very solid defenseman and what happened in Edmonton wasn't reflective of his play, but rather the team. That's a good price for a 7th guy, but I suspect he'll play quite a bit throughout this deal and it'll look like an even better bargain.

Penner had tweeted back asking if there was smaller sizes for Rev & Magnus. It would be awesome for them to wear them during warmups.

Good for Fistric. He certainly has done himself well. I think we all had him waived (early in the year when he wasn't dressing) if everybody ever got healthy. He got a chance and really stepped up. I'm happy for him. And I do like the toughness he brings while still playing a good, solid defensive game.

Are you saying the surgery he was supposedly scheduled for a week or two ago? That would be extremely unfortunate for him. He was a good guy. I hate to see him go out this way.

As to the Ducks, even if Souray goes on LTIR, he still gets paid so I don't see how that helps a team with an internal budget. It could still create financial problems for the team. I'm fairly certain teams don't have insurance to cover that unless it were a Weber/Sutter type contract.

Yep. I saw it on rotoworld, who were quoting the OC Register, so it's certainly a possibility.

As for internal budget, no, it doesn't help, but if it does happen, it obviously creates a roster spot(that would immediately be filled), so they don't have much of a choice in the matter. Also, regarding insurance, I don't have much of a clue about that sort of thing, but I do believe they have some. I remember when DiPietro signed his 15-year deal, he originally tried to do it a year before but they had issues insuring it due to the length. Again, don't know the particulars, but good chance if he's on LTIR for the entire year, an insurance company covers at least part of the contract.

LTIR probably won't matter for our cap situation next year anyway. Can't see us being close enough(i.e. right up against it) to use it's benefits. But, since he's hurt he can't be bought out, and can't see him announcing retirement as opposed to collecting his $3.5 million and rehabbing the injury, seeing if he could come back for the next season.
