This is a great signing for Florida. If there is anyone you want mentoring your young defensemen, it is Willie Mitchell.

He lost a lot of money because Malkin sent him face-first into the boards the season when he was likely to be re-signed for $5M+ AAV. Otherwise he's generally made very good money for a low offence shutdown defenceman.

$8.5 million.

He's got 2 Cup rings, he's 37, and a team just offered him all that money. Florida can more than afford it. Mitchell can only help the young defensemen already there.

Decent deal for Florida. Mitchell's a pretty good defensive defenseman.

And yeah, in his three seasons with the Kings, not counting the one he sat out due to injury, they won two Stanley Cups. Yeah, Willie Mitchell is a pretty good hockey player.

For that term, the money is nothing.

Tallon set out to add some experience and depth to their lineup today, and he's done that. Florida might come out of the basement next year.

Florida will make some noise in the east since that conference is pretty weak.

Despite the $ and contracts, I think Florida bought their way into the playoffs next year.

Possibly. As usual, they're going to be a tough team to play against.

Does Mitchell still skate like he's in quicksand?

Mitchell will be a great mentor for Florida's young defensive core just like he was for ours. I wish him nothing but the best, and am glad to see him getting paid too!
