[Signing] Penguins re-sign Jake Guentzel

Recommended Posts

He's a good player, but 6M per seems a little steep no?

He's a playoff performer, always takes his game to the next level when they matter.

This is steep, but I guess this is market value for a young top 6 core player? Canucks got a great deal with Horvat. I suspect Boeser will get around $7 over 6 years.

This puts brock at 9 mil :(

why? Guentzal 33pts in 36gp

 

Brock 23ps in 26gp

 

Boeser is should be around 7ish Million per season. I hope it does go higher that in the 7's, would prefer the high 6's but thats unlikely. 

 

Be interesting to see how JB handles this. Brock has had some injuries, he is also playing with 1 of the best youngsters in the league. We have cap space, but we need to try be smart when it comes to resigning guys. We got lucky with Bo, but his next deal will be $$$

He'd better be giving Crosby a 10% share for how he helped boost his career.

I disagree. I believe they are equal at best. Guentzal plays on a team with Crosby and Malkin. Boeser has played with retiring Sedins, Bo Horvat, and a rookie Pettersson. We'll see where Brock is at by seasons end. I'm not taking anything away from Guentzal though. He's a damn good player and this is a good deal.

Repeating what otheres are saying, Bo's contract is a steal.

I'm not sure the comparison to Brock makes sense yet, lets see where Brock is at when he's 24. 

 

But if this were a Benning signing I'd be fine with it.

Guentzal is every bit as good a Boeser, maybe better, thats a fair deal for him and the club.

I like Guentzel, especially when scoring against the Leafs.  However Boeser has far better vision, and pick skills.

I believe this buys a couple of UFA years which may have bumped up the numbers a bit. Considering he's near PPG numbers, this deal looks pretty good if he keeps this pace up and not the previous season's 48 points (which isn't shabby but not 6 million worth, but then again I think we would love 48 points out of Eriksson). I think something that shouldn't be overlooked is his impressive 42 points in 37 career playoff games. This guy will show up when it matters.

 

It'll be interesting how this will be compared to Boeser though because they have posted similar numbers (aside from one regular season blip). There is an argument that Guentzel is playing with better players, but Boeser struggled out the gate this year until he got put with Pettersson. I have a feeling Boeser's next deal might not be far from this (6-7 million for 6 years maybe?). Not sure how many years left until Boeser hits UFA years.

Contract is pretty fair. He's got 114 points in 158 games. Sure you can attribute that to playing with Crosby. But Burrows got paid for playing with the Sedins. Sometimes it's just the way it goes. 24 years old, playoff performer. Toronto should be lookin' at this deal and be upset about what Nylander got.
