This is a great cap hit, only 1.85 million per year for Steve Downie. Another great signing by Yzerm... oh wait, by SFY

I was always on board with the little bugger.

Great young player, great signing.

Yzerman is having a great summer. That's a great deal for Downie.

Great signing and perhaps the second best signing value-vise next to EJ this summer?

This is a team that is heading in the right direction fast. Everything that Yzerman touches seems to turn to gold.

Wow that's a really good price for everything that Downie brings. He's still RFA after this right?

Wasn't expecting a deal like this, rather 2.5-2.8, even towards 3, so great price!

Pretty much everyone knew he had value actually.

Just like some people stillt hink he's a punk and would be happy if he was thrown out of hockey... nothing has changed there.

Great deal, Yzerman continues to do a stellar job. I remember Sens fans calling me a fool for suggesting he'd be a better GM than Murray (He has no experience!!!!).

Great deal for sure. This is about what I expected him to sign actually given the contracts Yzerman has been giving out.

22 goals is nice, but he takes far too many stupid penalties. 208 PIM!
I think it's a fair price.

It's almost getting redundant, but another great singing for SFY.

From an Oilers POV - this contract should be helpful in the Cogliano & Gagner negotiations.
