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.

....aaaaaaand the mob goes wild?

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

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.
