Wow 4yrs/5.5m per

 

Was expecting an overpayment 

I stand corrected.

 

Surprised Nyquist didn’t have more suitors.

The media narrative will be that we overpaid for average players though, while praising the Leafs for their brilliant signing of Spezza.

He would have been a great player (with a great contract) for Bo' s line, but there's no way the Canucks would be able to fit him in under the salary cap.  Lou and Loui contracts:(

The value in having star players.

 

Nyquist won’t be the last player Petey entices to come here.

Hopefully Hoglander can join the team in a year or two and be a younger cheaper version of Nyquist.

That's nice, but he wouldn't have played on his line.  PP time, sure.  Maybe he just wanted to be encompassed in the aurora of the Petey Borealis.

Makes sense with Boeser having to be re-signed, leaves us with some flexibility moving forward.

"I just want a spot on the bench near him, coach".... "Maybe his autograph too?"

We will go nowhere without a real good quality winger for Horvat, Nyqvist should had been the perfect fit for him i'm so disapointed. 
Eriksson prevents us to sign Nyqvist that's upset me. This guy will do everything he could to not help us.

 

Hope we get rid of him very soon.

I would have been happy to have Nyquist at 4 X 5.5.  Wish Benning did more to get rid of a little more $$.  Also the cap penalty clearly cost us Nyquist.
