Ok....
Nikitin signed a 2 year deal
 
Callahan signed a 6 year deal for a cap hit just under 6 million per
 
Greene resigned with LAK 4 years 10 million
 
Gabby maybe done today......
 
I did see a rumor where Vanek MAY go for a shorter 3-4 year deal........


Overpaying for 3 years is ok. Specially for us because by the time the kids are ready to get paid he will be gone....but it still won't happen.

I know Edmonton is desperate for defensemen, but this is quite the overpayment.

 

No kidding. Makes me wonder if they would have taken Kindl? He makes half of that.

Good signing for Yzerman. Callahan is a hell of a player.

Nikitin is a lot like Ladislav Smid or Ericsson.  He's not going to make an impression on the scoreboard, but he that's not what he's there for.  It's an overpayment, but not a huge one for a 6'4 230 lb. stay at home d-man who can shut down forward and munch minutes.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Good for the Kings. Gaborik was a monster in playoffs.

4.9M AAV reported by Lebrun. I'm sure it's heavily front loaded which explains the long term

They can't heavily front or backload contracts anymore. It's probably slightly frontloaded but it's not like he'll be making 9 million and then down to 1 million

Poor choice of words but I can guarantee his last year will be his least paid. Obviously not like the kovalchuk contract though.

Good signing for the Kings, he fit in really well there.  However, 7 years for a player who's been riddled with injuries his entire career and they'll only get worse as he gets older.  Good deal and cap hit for the next few years, but after that it'll be one of those contracts that hangs around their heads.

I think it's smart to hey brought him back. But this is one of them deals than can be a steal if he is healthy or a disaster if injury plaqued. If I was a kinda fan I wouldn't like the length.

Interesting to see how it plays out.

Lombardi is heavily -challenging Chiarelli for the title of the best GM, first greene, than adding Gaborik and now getting him on a steal and Chia has made two mistakes in a row.

It kinda seems like he just didn't want to play for Columbus.

Nope.  I would have moved Franzen and Andersson for Umberger and a pick in a heartbeat.  Would have given us close to the same production and made us WAY harder to play against. 

 

If it's not clear, I'm a huge Umberger fan.  He's Abby with scoring ability and his special teams play is very strong.  One of the better PP net front guys in the league.  Next to Kesler, of course (still hoping). 

I always remember him for the game where Stuart crushed him and then he came back later in the game and scored a goal.

Kings are an attractive team for any hockey player. The ownership and management are committed to keep the team competitive. Also LA is a nice place to live. I live in LA for 24 years and I can tell you that hockey is becoming very popular here. Iam sure lots of players will take discounts to come here.

Maybe it was the only way to keep him. They have the money and room. In case if he is injured or performance declines significantly, they can do very well without him.

Gaborik really did take a discount to stay in Los Angeles.  He could have gotten $5.5 million or more on the open market.  I guess winning that cup really did bring him around that he didn't want to play for anymore craptastic teams.  The deal is $6 million a season before bottoming out to $3 million in the final year.
