I think we can figure that the numbers are around 4.5 to 5 million a year... it obviously can't get much higher. Great news though... best news since the draft. Man it's nice to finally hear good Avs news...

Do you think Hejduk signed around the qualifying offer because they gave him a long-term contract?

TSN also has the link.

I must say, this put a huge smile on my face when I got up today. It seems like from Milan's comments that he really wanted to stay here and he said how there's no better place to play your hockey in.

Now let's get Alex locked up more than one year and we'll be well on our way to a very good future.

You know the fact that Hejduk signed a 5 year deal doesn't mean he can't be traded, right?

Obviously, but they just locked him up. They're not going to trade him right away like everyone wanted.

It makes it VERY unlikely that he'll be traded anytime soon though...

What a standup move by a superstar player.....taking almost 1/2 million less then his qualifying offer......

Perhaps a little breathing room for Colorado and Pierre....

(take note Joe Thornton...)

Avs ink Hejduk for 5 years
By Terry Frei
Denver Post Sports Writer



The Colorado Avalanche today announced that right wing Milan Hejduk, 29, had signed a five-year contract, taking him though the 2009-10 season.

The contract calls for Hejduk to be paid $3.7 million in the upcoming season, $3.8 million in 2006-07, and then $4 million in each of the following three seasons. The $3.9-million average will be his "cap" number throughout the life of the contract, under terms of the new collection bargaining agreement and under the salary cap, which will be $39.1 million in 2005-06.

The Avalanche had made a one-season "qualifying" offer of $4.3 million to Hejduk, enabling it to match any offer or receive compensation if Hejduk received an offer from another team as a restricted free agent. The contract he accepted, though, calls for him to receive less than that qualifying figure.

That's awesome indeed .... which angers me even more...

Why couldn't PL have worked his butt off to get both Hejduk and Tanguay to sign multiple deals like this, before the UFA period, to clear some cap space for Forsberg?[/rant]
