Very good news. Oilers fans are probably going to have a heart attack, though. They've always held onto the hope that like them, the Canucks won't be able to hang onto their clutch players. This is a sign that the Canucks can and will. BTW...there was no offense meant to the Oilers in there.

WoooHoo! I know alot of Oiler fans, namely hemskyfan, were hoping Bert wouldn't sign....Bet they're pretty disappointed. Good to lock up our best player and not have to trade him for Jochen Hecht. Wooohooo! Go Canucks!

Good to see, glad he didn't get the 10 million everyone was sure he'd get. A fair deal from both sides. I predicted a 4-year at 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7.5 so I guess that was a little low, but not much. Fair deal, let's hope the distractions end tonight.
