It's a good day. I saw DeKeyser earlier say on Twitter he was confident a new deal would get done sooner rather than later so yes, a good day.

That's Dan Cleary money right there. I'm still totally fine with it.

Think about how this compares to Damien Brunner - Brunner was a horribly one-dimensional player with little NHL track record but already in his mid-20's, and there were those that pissed (at the time) that the Wings wouldn't go to 2.5 or 3 million per on a 2 or 3-yr deal.  

 

Tatar posted a 19-goal season in really his first full season (on a team decimated by injuries and surrounded by other young players).  To get him on a 3-year evaluation period AND he's still an RFA at the end of the deal is terrific.  It benefits Tatar, too, but it's a good signing for the organization, nonetheless.

 

UPDATE: And I see that it's $2.75 per now.  You can see from my posts that I was preparing the mob for this :)  I think it's perfectly valued.  Maybe he's worth just shy of $2 million now, but if he progresses at all, he's easily a $4 million player in year 3.  And if he doesn't pan out, qualify him conservatively or cut him loose.

Wow, way more than I thought it would be, and I do think it's over payment but like a lot of others are saying, I'm just happy to have him re-signed.

That's how these contracts go. Over payment at the start, bargains by the end.

If you remove Jurco's salary (assuming Alfie returns) it leaves a little over 6 million for DD and Alfredsson. Looks like they'll be right up against the cap again.

With a roster that's nowhere near the league's best, no less.  That's totally on the GM for letting a mediocre team be up against the cap.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yeah, I understand that. I'm not saying I don't like the deal, I just think it is over payment right now. I think he definitely has the potential to be worth more than that and for this to be a great deal in a couple years. But that's just what it is, potential. I just think RFA's can't negotiate with any other teams so their leverage goes down significantly. I think it's over payment, but because Tatar doesn't deserve it, but more because I don't think Holland 'had' to over pay that much...

Tatar will be RFA when the contract expires.

 

 

Because Tomas Tatar is a late birthday (December), he'll still have one more year of RFA after 3-year deal expires in 2017. #RedWings

Sums up my feelings exactly, a contract that he can grow in to. Also retain his rights beyond end of contract, big 3 years ahead for him and wings!
Also, we should use this as a guide for the type of money Gus stands to earn in the off-season next year. Would guess he'd earn more.

Filppula/Kronwall like money (when they signed their first respective deals) but still an RFA by the end of it

It's a surprise that Sheahan was signed to such a good deal.

 

Nyquist was signed prior to last season, before his numbers exploded. Tatar would have had a similar deal if he signed last year too. Good timing for him, bad timing for Goose.

In 3 years we will say this signing is a steal. Look at all the people that complained about the Kronwall signing at first. The cap will continue to go up and he will be a bargain scoring 20-30 goals a season.

I dunno, he'd have to really really step up his defensive game. Tatar is pretty much a clone of Kadri

Yes. Another good thing about these deals is even if the player doesn't pan out, it is never a cap killer. Having said that, I think the chances of Tatar not panning out are as likely as me winning the lottery.
