Hasan's latest: Devils sign John Moore 3 years $5 million

Pens are the big winners with Kessel. He should be a lock for 40. Who knows. Maybe 50? Pittsburgh has $38 million invested in 5 players. Sid. Malkin. Kessel. Fleury. Letang. Their top 6 will be top heavy with also Dupuis, Perron and Hornqvist. They'll probably dump Kunitz or Scuderi. Not much depth. They kept Pouliot. Leafs did okay still getting Kapanen and Harrington plus the 1st and 3rd which hinges on if Pens make the playoffs.

 

When the Bruins signing for Beleskey first came out, I feared something like 5 years, $25 million. 4 for 19 isn't bad. Not sure he'll match the production (22 G) with Bergeron/Krejci. Both are injury prone. The Smith for Hayes deal is interesting. I like Hayes and think he'll continue to get better. Smith is a solid two-way forward.

 

I like the Habs trading Prust for Kassian. He needs to stay healthy. Definitely a gamble. But might be worth it.


Worst signing. Sharks 4 years at $4.85 mill average for Martin. Talk about mediocrity.

I'll have to let others comment on this, because I really don't know much about him at all.

 

Moore is a great skater who shows flashes. But he still struggles with consistency. I can't say how he played for the Coyotes. But he was lost defensively for a good majority with the Rangers. As I said to Hasan, not sure I'd have gone three years. But it's time for him to figure it out. The talent is there. But is the IQ?

There is going to be another lockout regardless of what happens in free agency.

 

Got any bright ideas to fix it?

Sorry, but I disagree.  He is leaving a major market because he priced himself out and now he is getting considerably less based on the weaker Canadian Dollar and higher taxes.

 

Time will tell.  But now they have to pay Giordano.

 

They have all sorts of room to pay Giordano Manta. They had like over $25 million. They are gonna be loaded for the future. They'll have to pay Giordano and trade one of the other defensemen with Monahan and Gaudreau RFA next summer.
