Middle tier player gets middle tier money. 3.25 is not huge money.

It is when you have 2 superstars to re-sign. :(

He has already declined a $&!# ton in the past year. This will not look good three years from now. It doesn't matter if it's not huge money on its own when we always have several of these contracts add up.

How does he still have authority do make the same mistakes over and over again.

 

We need a 3C and Top 4 RHD.... so let’s sign a middle six winger to significant money and term.

 

Oh, and let’s do it at a time where it uses up a protection slot during expansion.

 

Oh, and let’s do it when we have a bunch of those contracts on the books that have gone terribly, leaving us with no cap space.

 

Oh, and let’s do it in a flat cap world where there will be similar level players available in the summer for 1 year, $1 million contracts.

THE OWNER HAS HIS PUPPET

Why was Pearson given protection from the expansion draft? He's a middling, streaky player at best. What a poorly thought out signing.

I think they'll be fine with Pettersson/Hughes - though both will get bridge deals - but it just feels like were paying relative top dollar for a guy who hasn't been a consistent 20 goal scorer.

 

The contract is not horrific in isolation, but under the circumstances of having a bunch of other bad contracts, its adding one to the pile and hoping it won't go badly.

Booooooooooo

 

Couldn't be more disappointed.  
How has he not learned his lesson signing declining vets to long term, over payed contracts?   
5$ says there is a ntc as well.
