A bit too rich for a bottom pairing defenseman. Why give him four years and Hamonic only two? That I don't get. Was hoping for a larger, more physical specimen. Not a huge fan of this signing. Oh well. 

Age.

Are people really whining about a $2.5m cap hit?  Seriously?

All overpayments add up, especially when the term is 4 years. We've seen this so many times during the Benning tenure.

Kind of ya, in what world does a D with 1pt garner a 4yr contract at this 2.5m cap hit?? He made 775k last year and was a fringe D on a $&!#ty Jets team

Halak? SUTTER?

 

Your boy Av is out criticizing Benning signings; I guess you got to fight the 'good fight'

I didn't say all his signings are bad, Sutter and Halak are good. But that good work is undone by giving Poolman this overpayment.

 

I don't know what your second statement is about, but I suspect many will criticize this deal.

Looks fine on the ice, which is more important than that trash that you quoted.

Hopefully he's a good fit. He has size and is a right shot.

Not a fan of the 4 year term though. Hopefully I am proven wrong.

Yes. Needed to find something to whine about 

2.5M is a luxury on the 3rd pairing. That means we have to cut that out from somewhere else. Is Poolman who you want to be giving extra money for what he's worth, or would you rather give that money elsewhere (3rd line center, top 4 dman)?

We still have to sign Hughes and Petey, and they'll have to come in cheaper to fit this in.
