I would be also, but he’s coming up on 30, he is going to want as much term as possible wherever he goes. If someone is offering him 5, he will not sign here for 3. 

5 years at $4m per seems like a pretty good deal, and a significant raise for him as well. 
 

 

I think it's fair.  I mean he is a 35-ish point a season guy, so $4-5M a year seems to be a nice salary for that kind of production.

Two of those 30+ point seasons, he only played 55 and 57 games, too. So potentially that isn’t even his ceiling.

lol that's pretty funny.  I've always wondered how the team would have been if he re-signed.  He wasn't quite the same player as he was in Toronto.

He goes in to say how he wasn’t happy, especially since his contract woulda been through the next two Cups, and how Chicago lied and how Buffalo screwed Chicago when they traded him and JP Dumont for someone who played one more season. (I was in the middle of a run when I heard the story, details could be wrong). Felt like he had some regrets turning the deal down even though it was for less than he made.

i say we go for it. your thought? id do 5x9(i am not a gm)

Yeah you’re gonna have to overpay big-time for a guy like Hamilton, but I’d be down with it. We need to actually make an impact move, and getting Dougie Hamilton would be an impact move.

Seriously going the the city was fun in my teens/college years because it was a 20 minute PATH ride from my friends place in Hoboken.  You couldn't PAY me to go into the city for no reason nowadays. Whole island smells like piss, especially in th summer.

Only good things about manhattan are steak houses, skyline views and driving thru it in the summertime.. After that I can't get out fast enough come 3:30

There's nothing like going into the city during Christmas time.    Forget politics, or whose protesting who, they decorate like it's a full time job.   

Never go in on the days surrounding New years eve.... pretty much the only people in the city on new yr eve are foreigners on vac, or out of staters... or the cops who make a sh!t ton of ot that night

Dam, he would be a fine pick up for a team like ours that desperately needs a top tier defenseman, if we could get him to sign an extension.

Not sure what we'd have to offer to get him.

 

edit: Subban comes of the books after this season so offer him Subban's money plus another mil if it'll keep him here.  I think he's only going to be 27 so you can offer him something long term too.  I know I'm just dreaming though.

I would, he wouldn’t, same story as always lol. 

Oh man, he would be the perfect addition.  I’m clear it would never happen but I would trade for him and make him and offer he can’t possibly refuse 

What’s the price for a dude like him that just has one year left on his deal before UFA because I would give up a lot.   

Columbus seems like they might have to start rebuilding again so picks and prospects?   Holtz + 2022 1st?

Not for nothing, but wouldn't getting Seth Jones be very similar to what we just did with PK a couple years ago?  PK is a little older, but not by much (Jones is about to be 27, we got PK when he was 30), and their production is pretty close, with PK actually having the edge.

Seth Jones is FAR better defensively than PK ever was. I would give up quite a bit to get him. And I would probably buy his jersey the day we acquired him. Needless to say I’m a big fan. Living in Ohio I watch the Jackets more than any other team other than the Devils, and he always leaves me impressed (and jealous).
