Bad defenseman, worse contract. Wish they never signed him at all last year.

Did he get signed?

If so, what are the details?

If not, why all the drama over something that has yet to happen - with specifics that are yet to be determined?

Excellent news!!!
Maybe one year too long but whatever. He makes our team better and Sekera and him compliment each other very well.

Again, Hopefully it's structured to pay more money in the first 2 years, so it would be easier to move him in the last 2.

I don't mind the player, but the term isn't great.

Had to sign somebody.

Just moving in on Russell in particular does seem premature to me, but I understand not wanting to risk getting caught with your pants down and left with nobody.

Contract sucks but he's a UFA so that's not surprising.

Seriously for the guys who say bad defenceman did you watch last year? Im sorry, he is solid gets the puck out, good passer, solid positionally. I get you might not like the term but to say he is a bad defenceman open your eyes

Hooray!!!

It's a modified NTC, not a NMC.

Who is RENAUD LAVOIE?


(Journaliste et expert de la LNH, il est affecté a la couverture du Canadien de Montréal depuis la fin des années 90. Il joint l’équipe de TVA Sports en tant que collaborateur aux émissions Le Premier Trio et Le Match et est affecté a la couverture du CH.)

So, an expert on the Oilers with connections to Chia...

your eyes
No, he doesn't.

In fact, these are the two things he can't do at at all, and are responsible for most of why he's bad.

Okay then. As long as it is expansion proof. He likely wouldn't get selected anyways, but you don't want to have to protect him at the expense of a younger (possibly better by that time) defenseman.

We shouldn't worry about an expansion draft that hasn't been announced, that's just crazy

If we hand this contract out to Russell and the Flames end up picking up Hamonic for picks, whatever faith I have left in Chia will be gone.

sadly after the Strome trade we dont have to wait for things to be official to freak out.
Media insiders seems to be on their game this year.

He's actually very connected and has broken a few things before.

He's also saying what basically everyone else is saying in this case.
