I knew it wasn't us.

But, with the Ericsson deal and all, you ******* scared me by not naming the signing team in the thread title.

Buffalo is my 'alternate' team. I was cool with the Ehrhoff overpayment, but this is nuts. Leino's really riding that successful playoff run, eh?

$4.5 Per Season for Ville has Buffalo gone mad?? I'm sorry but without some dramatic improvement that is way to much to pay for him but whatever that's the Sabres decision I just hope they don't regret it in a year or so.

Yeah, sorry. I realized that immediately after I hit post. Sorry :(

Edit: Thanks for fixing it mods!

It's a bit high, but I think a real good fit for Buffalo. With Roy, Vanek, Pominville, and Stafford there are plenty of scorers for Leino.

Also, I'm kind of happy to see players going to a good market like Buffalo after so many left due to financial reasons.

makes the big rig deal a bit more palatable.

Both are about 1 - 1.5 mil overpaid. Leino has actually done something though.

Guy gets 19 goals and 34 points once in his career and suddenly he's worth 4.5 million over 6 years?? What is a guy like Cleary worth in a market like this, its insane!

No problem. :)

I didn't mean to sound harsh to you. It was really my frustration with the Wings' situation. Anyways, I'm sorry too.

You overpay for players who make stuff happen on the ice, not players who only benefit when other great players are already doing the work for them.

Terrible overpayment, especially for 6 years! I don't understand why so many teams hate signing hard-working players. That's how you win!

How is this an overpayment when he had a much better season last year than Ericsson?

Technically, both deals are overpayments, but based on the Ericsson move, this actually makes financial sense.

Wonder how good he'll be without Briere and Hartnell.

Wonder how good they'll be without him. They pretty much got it going instantly when Leino was put on to that line.
