[Signing] Capitals sign Justin Schultz

Recommended Posts

Probably could have got a 7 year deal this time last year. Timing sucks for him.

4m per year...ouch!

Is it fair to say this is the territory of Barrie though?

I take Barrie over Schultz, if we could get Barrie for that price. Alberta will pay Barrie more I assume

This is the value of right-handed NHL defensemen.  Do you want your kids to become NHL players?  Put them on right D.

If we sign Barrie, that will make our Defense very Kelowna-centric.  Edler, Myers and Barrie all played for the Rockets and Benn's brother played for them.  I would guess 3 would be the most players from 1 junior team on an NHL defense in the history of the league?

Didn't work for me, though that might be because I'm 5'8", 150lbs and never played on an ice hockey team.

Back loaded 2 year deal. Seattle is getting the shaft from other GMs

That's because you didn't have Tyler Motte's work ethic

As an aside, I am impressed how much capfriendly is on the ball with updates.  About 10 mins after the thread was started, they had Washington updated

Nor the money, unfortunately.

He was fantastic four years ago but last year his numbers look pretty bad. Maybe 1 x $3M would have made sense but 2 x $4M is a lot for a guy who performed as a bottom pairing dman.
