I'm always a little leery of multi-year deals for guys over 35. But a longer contract should mean a lower average cap hit, so I'll trust Kenny with it.

Great News! As long as it doesn't chew up too much of the Cap. I knew of the 4 guys in question, Holmstrom would be the most likely to re-sign. I wonder if Yzerman was eyeballing him up at all?

Nice, look forward to seeing what the cap hit is.

And 2 years is good, it might encourage Lids to stay another year past this as well.

According to Greg Brady, who works for AM640 in Toronto and is connected to the Maple Leafs says the deal is 2 years with a cap hit of $1.875 per year.

If True! What an Amazing Deal!!

Given Holmstrom's age and injury history I'd say the fact that this is a multi-year extension means the cap hit is noticeably lower than his single year hit was. Otherwise it's hard to justify giving a 37 year old with a history of injuries a 2 year contract.

I was hoping optimistically for a 1.8m cap hit. 1.875 is pretty great! Hope it's true.

$1,875,000 is a bargain for 25 goals. I love it. Although things could get hairy next year if he ends up being like Draper (a spare part in the last year of his contract).

Yes indeed if that is true then awesome! Hopefully if they re-sign Bertuzzi, it will be similar numbers! I see a good July 1 coming soon!
