Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

This doesn't feel like a Kenny signing. For f***'s sake.

If this is true we just have to hope E grows enough over next few seasons to justify it.

Hands down, though, the single worst part of this signing will be sorting through the vitriol and dead-horse beating on LGW for at least the next 3 years. :lol:

I actually like Big Rig, but this is a brutal contract if that's the real numbers? Unless they plan on playing him top 4, PP, PK, he will never live up to that contract. Quite puzzling.

If Kenny doesn't have a big rabbit to pull out of his sleeve tomorrow; I will for the first time in the history of kenny holland; doubt his GM abilities. It APPEARS we have ******* sat around while everyone is scooped up. This could very well be another ******* soft hearted "bu.bu.but, he's a wingy :blush: " kind of signing.

Sounds like somebody wants to spend just to have a press conference...

It's almost certain to be for four years. It was mentioned in an article or interview recently that Holland and Ericsson were working on 2 year and 4 year terms, with the money around $2m. Changing that to over $3m for three years just whacks it too much. Four years would be $2,437,500 per season, which is right where the reported numbers were at.
