Exactly how I see him, too. I think it's a solid deal for what he brings to the table.

I don't see how Shane O'Brien money is over paying for Grossman. He is a very good young Dman who as said was forced into a big role with Dallas, n was only slightly outta place.
Good signing for Joe, n the Stars. Now get Neal under contract! The kid is gonna be a good one!

when he is an ufa, i hope he knows Lundqvist so he can convince him to be a ranger . very solid underrated top 4 dman. id take him on the rangers. him and staal would be a solid shutdown pair for the future

Actually it said (3.25 Million / 2 years) so it didn't TECHNICALLY say it was 3.25 million PER as a signing thread normally would.

Yep. Hard to complain about this. A big, young, top 4 type of D-Man for under 2 million/per is a very good deal.

Great deal. I also thought that he'd get north of $2 million. Grossman isn't perfect, but he's been outstanding so far.

I hate automatically comparing a guy to a fellow countryman, but the Norstrom comparisons are pretty valid. His defensive game also reminds me of Lidstrom's defensive game - though obviously not nearly as perfected/refined.. Nothing flashy at all, just smart with good gap control and efficient movement.

Question - is he UFA immediately when this expires or do we still get another negotiation with him as an RFA?

Good signing. Now Dallas just needs to sign about 4 more real defensemen.
