In Topic: Tarasenko re-signs with the Blues (60 mill/8 years)

73 points at 22-23, and he's not even in his prime.

I understand that he had a great season. But I'm of the belief that backing up a Brinks truck right into the fender of another Brinks truck at this junction is a bit premature. Plenty of guys have been down this road only to eventually lose their way. Again, not saying Tarasenko will fall into that category, only time will tell. I'm just surprised at how many people believe this deal is a home run.

Nothing against Tarasenko, but what about this contract is a steal? The guy has 135 points in 179 games. I am asking more in regards to what people thought a guy with one great season would get? Personally I do not care what a guy makes, just logically I am confused as to how some people think he is somehow being underpaid.

Pittsburgh's roster is certainly better with Kessel, I just do not think scoring was their problem. They still have not addressed the concerns of roster depth or defensive deficiencies. You could argue they made their depth worse with the Kessel trade. And I don't buy into the belief that the Pens will all of a sudden be better this year because Dupuis, Letang, and Maata are supposedly healthier. They haven't had an even halfway decently healthy season as a team since Crosby suffered his first concussion. I don't see why one would think this season will be any different.

Bettman said they eventually will have ads on jerseys.
So calm down.
Its not that Absurd.

I'd love to read the quote where Bettman says "jerseys will have advertisements on them because I want them to." Go ahead and point it out to me. If Im wrong then I will eat my crow medium rare.

If Bettman wanted ads on jerseys, he could've done it a long time ago...some people's ignorance is beyond obsurd.
