But wait! I thought he hates New Jersey and was signing one year so he could sign in Toronto as soon as possible?!?

So much for Henrique didn't have any leverage. You know who said that.

 

I am glad he signed now do you job Henrique and Zajac.

In 4 years the cap will be around 80 million. If Henrique can be a 40-50 point player, it'll be a fair deal. I'm happy Lou bought some ufa years

eh if Vanderbeek was stilll the owner and there were more $ problems, I'd be worried about the $ but with the big cap and owners who are solvent, I'll take the years

Remeber all those UFAs that used to hold out and play overseas because Lou wouldn't budge?  WTF?  I hope he turns out to a great player, but wow.

I don't think anyone can doubt that those two series clinching goals bumped him another million a year.

At first I was a bit surprised by the $4M a year but factoring in it buys out 2 UFA years and the cap should keep going up year by year, I think it's a worthwhile gamble by Lou.

I don't think Henrique would sign a contract for 6 years and 18 million dollars, it doesn't make very much sense.  UFA 3rd liners are going to be making an average of $3M per soon.

This was obviously the longer term of the two deals offered to Henrique. Wonder what the other one was.....2/$6M, maybe 3/$8M?

I like the signing a lot. In a season or two when Henrique has reached his full potential I'm sure he will be worth more than 4 million.

very glad to see him signed to a long contract i like henrique alot.. and i think in a couple years as stated abouve when he is really in his prime this could even end up being a little bit of a bargain.. lets just hope he doesnt end up as useless as zajac as been...

How can Zajac be "useless" when he hasn't played game one of his new contract extension yet?

Lou said it was 2 years or 6 years with no inbetween.  I doubt very much it would be 2/6 - more like 2/4.

I put up a post on the signing. It's an interesting gamble. He'll be 29 when the contract ends.

What does having played any games while being on his extension have to do with his performance... there is no argument that travis zajac hadn't done much last season... just so happened to be after he signed that extension. ... he hadnt produced much of anything last season when he was depended on to do so.. he got a big contract extension that doesnt look good for his level of prodcution. Again which is why i said lets hope he doesnt end up being useless as zajac has been for us since hes resigned...

 I think you're trying to corelate Zajac signing the extension during his existing contract as some type of "quasi-year" of that new extension. Fact is, Zajac had a bad year before the extension kicked in, while if Henrique has a bad year he'll do so under a new contract. The only thing that matters is what Zajac, like Henrique, does from this year forward as they are both on long term deals with 9 million tied between them.

I think you're trying to corelate Zajac signing the extension and his bad year as a "quasi-year" of his new contract. The only thing that matters is what Zajac, like Henrique, does from this year forward as they are both on long term deals with 9 million tied between them.

I'm not trying to correlate* his performance with his extension.. I'm not saying he has been sucky because of the extension.. i simply stated that his performance has not been worth the terms of his new contract, and that hopefully the same thing does not happen to henrique..as I've already stated i think it could end up being a pretty good deal for the team (contract wise) once adam hits his prime.

Again, Zajac was not performing under the terms of his new contract extension in 12-13. If we was then i'd agree 100%. He hasn't played a game under his new extension yet, so you can't say he's not worth the terms. You're trying to corelate a bad year under an old contract to an extension that hasn't begun yet.

Feels a tad expensive right now, but I think it's more then likely that this will look like a good deal in a couple of years.
