$3.2 (avg) for the next 5 years. RFA after the deal.
Remember, this contract doesn't kick in until next year, so his average for the "next 5 years" is actually $2.7 million (base)

2009-10: $765,000 (plus potential rookie incentives)
2010-11: $2.7 M
2011-12: $3.0 M
2012-13: $3.3 M
2013-14: $3.7 M
Total: $2.7 M per year

It is a risk committing $12.8 M to a player who we haven't seen competing on the ice since it he had is arm separated from his body, but overall, I like the deal. In October and November last year, it seemed like there were several nights Brassard was only one on the ice while the new guys (Huselius/Commodore/Tyutin/Umberger) were trying to get adjusted and the team struggled with goalie issues. The guy is a fierce competitor who's heart was bigger than his head in the fight with Neal, but he wasn't afraid to vocalize to the media his disappointment with playing time last year from Hitch and then back it up when he got it and to put pressure on management this spring to get back into the line-up for the playoffs. I also really like that Howson is getting the "business" side out of the way and securing a nucleus of talent for the next 3-5 years (Huselius, Commodore, RJ, Nash, Brass, Tyutin plus RFAs Voracek, Flilatov, Mason). If Brass produces at 80% of his start of last year, this deal will be fine, if he produces at 100% or greater, than Howson looks great again.

You know when I look at this what I see is 3 very affordable legit centers with the one we are projecting as our #1 beingpaid comparable to the rest instead of 5million. How could this be a bad deal in any book? Worse case if he stumbles and heads down in the chart we still are not paying much more than we would have anyhow.

That's the contract after this one. Remember, we need to make sure he'll be decent with Nash first.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

This and the Vermette signing are such welcome news, I'm getting excited for next month. Now let's grab a defenseman and start the season off right.
