I think its a very fair deal for 4 years. Any less term and it would have been an overpayment.

I'm not mad about this contract, but I really believed he'd get less.  Damn this free cap space sure does go quickly doesn't it?

2.4 cap hit, I bet he out plays that contract for sure. I like the deal

Agreed. I would have guessed 2 million but I never thought he would sign a 4-year deal either.

Slightly an overpayment, but Kindl still has potential to reach. And he's already elevated his game so much from a few years ago. I'm happy with it

Typical Holland faith contract. Generally the players who get them pan out quite nicely.

 

Anyway, Kindl was easily the team's most improved player this season, and he has the rare gift of being able to consistently get shots on net through a crowd. Good contract.

I would have been completely against this signing at the beginning of this season.  But Kindl definitely matured into a defenseman worthy of competing for a roster spot.

 

I'm thinking this will pave the way for Coliacovo to be bought out, if he can't be traded.  That leaves next year's D to look like this (when/if Smith is re-signed)...

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Smith - Quincey

Kindl - DeKeyser

Lashoff as the 7th Dman

This makes him a UFA at the end of his contract. Unless I'm mistaken...

Considering he's the third best defenseman on our team I can't complain too much.  He'll be more productive next year as well.  I've always sort of pulled for Kindl too so I'm happy with it.  He really stepped it up last season and I think he's still got another level above what he accomplished this year.  There were times when he was a legitimate threat skating the puck out of the zone.  Once he can do that consistently I think he's a second pair puck mover easily. 

 

Edit:  Good point by Crymson too, I think he clearly had the best shot on our defense this season too.  He finds open shooting lanes...if he gets a little more accurate with it he'll be a real good point on the PP.

He'll be 30 at the end of the deal, so I think you're right.

I'm a fan of the deal, and I actually think the extra year or two is a good thing. By the end of the deal, he could definitely be playing above his cap hit. I like it.

Lol yeah, me too.  I did not think he was going to be 30 at the end of this new contract.  Sheesh, time flies.

Now I'm curious what kind of money Brendan Smith is going to make.  Hmm...

Good.  He's one of those quiet kids who does things without much notice.  He's still got some ninja in him.  The other team prepares to battle the more noteworthy ones, and -bam!- he sneaks in and gets the job done before fading to oblivion again.

 

4@2.4=good numbers.

Good deal that should become a great deal. Kindl is only 26, so his best years are yet to come.

I'd guess it will be slightly less than Kind's but probably not for as long a term. He'll look to get paid in his 3rd contract.
