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.

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!!

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).

I think it will be a 2 year/4 million dollar deal.

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!

^ I really would only like to see one of Bert/Homer back next year. I'd rather spend 3 million (if we have the space) one someone who will make a little more impact than Bert. He was good the entire year, but as for actually putting points up, outside a few bright spots he wasn't very good.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I wouldn't mind seeing Holland offer Owen Nolan a contract instead of Bertuzzi for Holmstrom money. Or maybe Tanguay... You're right Bertuzzi was just too inconsistent, but Holland loves him and will prolly offer him the same as Holmstrom, too bad there isn't enough roster space to add a Nolan or Tanguay as well... Damn you Hudler!

Maybe he can convince Nick to sign on for one more year after next and retire together.

If anything this opens the door for Lilja even more. Lebda is gone. Meech will get a qualifying offer and depending on Lilja's situation could be moved.

I'm very uncertain about an Ericsson-Kindl pairing without a backup like Lilja just in case Ericsson doesn't take the next step forward or Kindl struggles as badly as many suspect he will (myself included, although I think he has the potential to be a good player long term).

This makes me feel a lot better about our cap situation, and possibly getting some new blood in here :D

If he gets 25 goals, it's a GREAT bargain. If not, he still is useful on the PP.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

This is great news! Great cap hit, I was expecting it to be slightly higher.

Next up...Bertuzzi ?
