Woo! The only thing I'm hoping for is a that there isn't a NTC or NMC on his contract. Not for a move now but to be able to when we need to for a kid who's ready.

I would reserve that judgement until we see some numbers. If it is more than $4.5m per, it would not be great. Hoping for under $18m!

Depends....the Blues could afford a more expensive deal if they front-load the payment. I think Andy got more time at the price of a slightly lower annual rate. I bet he got a NTC, too, but as we know those are always subject to pressure if it comes to that.

I bet its 4.5 per year x 4 years with 5 or 6 in the first year.

I'm glad to see that McDonald wants to be here. He was shocked to be traded originally, but he's really settled in and obviously is happy here. He'll be a key contributor in some upcoming play-off runs. Its good to have an experienced (yet still fairly young) player who has a Cup win under his belt to help mentor the young guys.

I'm glad to see the Blues locked him up. He came out this season on fire. I was pissed when he went down. Hope it's around 4 mil but I think it may be 5.

4 years??? Depending on the money, I'd like to insert a certain smiley that's missing from the collection:

Per Strickland, average 4.7/year and he may play tomorrow vs Vancouver. Hell, even if its only for a couple shifts, it would sure be a nice lift to the team.

Thats 4.7 a year. With PK and JM coming off the books. Decent sign hoping for less but he could have gotten more on Jul 1st.

That's a bit much for McDonald IMO. It's not horrible but it's no bargain. McDonald has plenty of skill but lacks other intangibles...like size and defensive play.

Still, I think I can safely say it's less than he would've gotten in free agency.

Depending on how quickly the economy rebounds and how Andy plays, those might look like pretty good bargain prices in the last couple years.

this just keeps getting better and better...

I'd probably rather have had the 20th overall pick, which we might have been able to package with our own top-10 pick and move up to #3 or #4...
