He'd get $6m+ easy on the free market. If the $4.75m cap hit is true, then this is a great signing in my book.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Awesome. Anyone know how the rules govern this contract off hand? I don't feel like looking them up.

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

If this is true I forgive Kenny for the Ericsson contract. Unbelievable steal! Which also raises some eyebrows, perhaps Kenny expressed his interest in finding a new defense partner next season?

Any one hear the yearly salary breakdown yet?

Bob Mckenzie tweeted it was 7 years at $4.75M/yr so for anyone who is questioning if it's fact you can pretty much take Mckenzie to the bank.

CBC just reported that the reason why Kronwall agreed to such a small cap hit was that Holland makes Ericsson to buy Kronwall a new house.

I imagine that was part of the conversation for sure.

The whole crop of post-Yzerman era Wings have really showed a lot of loyalty to the organization. Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Kronwall, Cleary, etc. They're a great crew for sure.

So wicked. Leaving tons of money for Suter or Coburn. Or, if Stuart heads to California, both. Now, get rid of Ericsson.

Sorry about the Blueadams, but I'm excited.

Suter / Kronwall
Coburn / Smith
Kindl / White

OR

Suter / Kronwall
Stuart / Smith
Kindl / White

OR, Lidstrom returns at 5M for one last kick at the can.

Suter / Kronwall
Lidstrom / Smith
Kindl / White

Not really sure how anyone could see this as a bad signing at that cap hit.

Good job Kenny.

Now Wings, how about we win a game?

Just curious; Has anyone ever heard of an owner getting busted for paying a player additional money under the table. Seems like there could be so many ways to funnel money under the table to players to keep the team under the cap.

Something like what the politicians do all the time. Cash, or paying for kids college or use of the team plane to a free condo in the Carribean (ha ha) , deposits in off shore bank accounts, or...



Anyone ever heard of anything?
