Yeah he is getting 7x10 minimum, even TOR fans know this because you can go peek at HF and see posts like "the salary cap is unfair" 

HF.... I never realized how stupid hockey fans were until I started reading that forum. Some of the posters over there should be forced to pass a hockey IQ test in order to continue watching the sport- that’s the kind of stupidity you’re dealing with over there. You also can’t insult anyone for their stupidity or you’re banned and your posts all get deleted because the it’s so heavily moderated, it’s absurd. That’s why I never signed up to post. It sucks.

Yeah, definitely not on the level with the geniuses that populate our board. :)

With how shallow the FA class is I have been deep diving down the lists and this guy, Emile Poirier, has become my irrational #1 target http://calgaryherald.com/sports/hockey/nhl/calgary-flames/calgary-flames-prospect-emile-poirier-opens-up-about-alcohol-abuse

Sign for cheap and move him in to the Daneyko's basement.

Weren't the Canadiens making a serious push for Paul Stastny? This basically guarantees he stays with the Jets.

The Canadiens acquire forward Joel Armia, goaltender Steve Mason, a seventh-round draft pick in 2019 and a fourth-round pick in 2020 from the Winnipeg Jets, in exchange for defenseman Simon Bourque...

David Pagnotta‏ @TheFourthPeriod

The SJ Sharks and Logan Couture have finalized an eight-year, $64M contract extension. Done deal, to be officially official tomorrow.

Couture’s new contract with San Jose has no negative affect on San Jose’s ability to sign Tavares. This was factored in, and if Tavares signs, the team still plans on re-signing Joe Thornton to a one-year deal.

LeBrun says we're still in the mix for Maroon. I like him, but I really hope we don't go more than 3 years.

I feel like that’s a good length for him. Coming off a $2.1m year, what do you think his annual will be?

I'm guessing somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 million. This is going to be his last chance to cash out big, so I hope Shero can sign him to something reasonable. I'd like him back, but not going to lose sleep if he moves on.

I read somewhere that people were expecting 5M / year for him.

Which, in my mind, is insanity.

Yeah I think that’s a lot. I’d go 3 years $4m per. I think that’s about my limit.

There goes the idea of getting someone from Minnesota on a discount by taking on Ennis’s contract.

We re-signed Eddie Lack, 1 year 1-way.

.....okay.

Interesting...why would we need Lack on a 1 way?

All it means is he gets paid the same salary in the NHL or the AHL.

My thoughts exactly. A trade for KK maybe?

On second thoughts...didn't Schneider have surgery? Maybe he won't be ready for the start of the season?

I know what it means. Why would you pay 3 goalies at an NHL rate when you know you are only going to carry two?

Even so, they could have signed Lack to a two way deal so he’s not being overpaid when he spends the rest of the year in Binghamton. Makes me wonder about KK’s future. Less so Schneider’s.

He’s an insurance policy, like last year. It really doesn’t mean anything. You think Lack is getting that much? He’s probably making around $850,000. It’s a drop in the bucket.

Lack is getting the league minimum for one year.  The Devils don’t care if he makes it through waivers and they have to pay him the same salary in the AHL.  If it were some prelude to a KK or Schneider trade, they’d be trying to sign someone like Khudobin.
