Would have preferred only one year for OD, but otherwise these contracts look pretty good.

Yeah, the two years is a little risky, but really, he played like a $3 million guy last year. The salary's fine.

Deja vu all over again! Crazy hfboards and it's crashy goodness

2 years on an over 35 player? You know what that means... Let's just hope OD doesn't lose too many steps that he can't even contribute as a 5-6 in the 2nd year.

Huskins salary seems a little high for a 5th defenseman, but then isn't he giving up a year of UFA? So maybe that's a good price.

600k/yr for a 5th defenseman isn't high at all.

And I think it's close to the minimum now, no? Didn't that go up?

It's possible the min is 500. That number sticks in my head for some reason. Like it went up 25k each season.

No, you're right. It's $475k this year and next. I thought it went up more than that for some reason.

But Huskins' salary is fine. A little improvement and he'll contend for a top four spot.

I think OD decided to take a little less salary, so he could get that extra year.

good signings.

They have both earned it.

I'd let DiPenta and Jackman walk and bring in a #5 d-man on the market and keep Rome as the 7th d-man. Assuming Scotty comes back.

Scotty-Beauchemin
Pronger-O'Donnell
UFA-Huskins
Rome

I'd bet Joey D will be back, unless he wants a significant raise or wants to live elsewhere. He's a textbook #6 guy and one of Carlyle's guys.

We need a more offensive d-man in the bottom pair. Husky moves the puck well but doesn't have much of a shot. If it came down to keeping Jackman or Joey I'd say Jackman because he can put points up.

I'd like to see Skinner fight for that 7th spot in Sept too. Rome seems to be the front runner right now but I like the way Skinner skates and moves the puck better.

Great California teams blog, where the Ducks are represented by our very own Earl Sleek.

In addition to OD and Huskins, Burkey...

http://www.ocregister.com/ocregister...le_1742532.php
Quote:
Having also re-signed goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere and wingers Travis Moen and George Parros since winning the Stanley Cup on June 6, the Ducks have also extended a contract offer to veteran left wing Brad May and made preliminary overtures to defenseman Joe DiPenta and winger Shawn Thornton, Burke said. May, DiPenta and Thornton stand to become unrestricted free agents July 1.
Hope they are all re-signed!

Also, cool quote from OD.
Quote:
"It's still great money to do what we do," O'Donnell said. "Who knows how much you could get on the open market? It's just a good fit. Money wasn't the primary thing. I love it here. I love the way we play. I love the guys.

"I'm at a point in my career where I want to win. Once Anaheim came with what I felt was a fair offer, I jumped at it."

I think i read something in the OC paper that Burke quoted when talking to Chris at the NHL Awards ceremony about Sean he said no defenseman has a good year without a great partner.

I think its a great deal considering they both feel like they have good chemistry together.

Worst case Odonnel and Huskins are our 4th & 5th defenseman... best case they are are 5 & 6th (if Niedermayer comes back we sign a FA like Schneider).

I am not a big fan of Huskins, but I am well aware there is worse out there. On the other hand, I am so happy we re-signed O'Donnell. The salary he got fits him pretty well and he is a pretty solid d-man. I see a lot of people are not very happy for the two years he got, but I see that as a good thing.

Not unhappy. For the salary, it's pretty low-risk. I like OD's comment about wanting to play here and wanting to play the style that we play.

That quote about bringing May, DiPenta and Thornton coming back is interesting. Looks like Burke pretty much wants to keep the entire team intact. Except for Shannon, anyway.

That must have been a heck of a locker room. Usually there's at least one guy who grouses about playing time or something. Well, okay, that was probably Bryz, and he's probably gone.

Someone already said this, but I think a little turnover is a good thing. Complacency is always something that you have to worry about after winning the Cup.
