Says Demitra to Vancouver for 3 year contract. 4mil each year.
Not a horrible deal, by any stretch.
That's on the high end of what I expected he'd get. Though I've been pencilling in $4.5 million in my mock rosters just to be safe. Not surprised he got the Naslund contract though. I've said since the beginning these guys are pretty comparable on the market. Assuming Bernier in the $2.5 million range we still have room for Sundin without dumping salary. Though we could always trade Pyatt or Cowan if things get too tight.
Great signing by the canucks. Bernier/Demitra > Naslund/Morrison, so maybe the jokers who keep saying we're worst than last year will shut their trap now. Plus last year's team barely missed the playoffs and only did due to injuries plus a brutal last 10 games of the season.
Let's hope sundin shows some character now and doesn't sign with the habs as going to a rival like that after spending all those years with the leafs will show he's got no character. Vancouver represents the best option for him at this point.
