Very steep.

Clarkson contract may have some competition...

Not sure I understand the length here. Edmonton might regret this.

Too long a term and too much money for a penalty-taking third liner. But he's depth.

I like the Fayne signing, and Nikita's solid too, but this one will be a haunter.

I think we have an early contender for worst contract of the off season.

This is the kind of thread you will see Bruins and Habs fans agreeing with each other.

A little high, but that's what you gotta offer free agents when you've been rebuilding for years.

His underlying numbers are very good, I don't think this will be nearly as bad as many are saying.

Around four years too long and eighteen million dollars too much

4 million a year for a 30 point player? Good luck Edmonton.

Pouliot has a very good skillset, he could potentially breakout into a stud top 6er.

Keyword: Potentially, 4M for a good 3rd liner is a bit much.
