Who the  hell is Connor Miller?

Signed for one more year, has over 400 games of NHL experience, had a solid year last season.  And yeah, clearly some insurance in case Nemec isn’t ready.

Is he supposed to be replacing graves?

In part, and he also shoves Smith further down the depth chart.

Decent pick up for what was given. Curious how he slots in to the lineup.

I see both he and Smith being insurance in case Nemec isn’t quite ready and/or Bahl regresses.

He had 21 points in 79 games least season and was a +23.

Even had a 41-point season some time back.  Given the cost and his contract value, it’s a fine move.

It's a typical Fitz move ... Damn we are lucky to have this guy on top !

Hamilton - Marino

Graves/Hughes - Siegenthaler

Bahl/Miller - Nemec

Really wondering if this means Graves is gone. If he isn't, I don't see room for Nemec this year. You're not having Bahl, Miller, Smith AND Nemec as 7th d-men. Too many guys to healthy scratch.

Graves isn’t coming back, someone is going to pay him.

Graves and Severson were always going to be gone.

Yeah that was pretty much a no-brainer.

I like it!  Even if the young defensemen don’t pan out or go through growing pains this will be a backstop to get through the season.  I still believe Fitz has put the team in a good position to win a cup in the next 4 years.

Yeah I love this deal too.  It represents immediate help and depth for a late-round pick that would’ve had a low-percentage chance of helping down the line.  It’s a guy that makes perfect sense at this time.

Fitz said that he was going to test the market. Some team will throw 5 or 5.5 at him.

He got 6 years @ $4.5 million AAV from Pittsburgh.  Was a little surprised by the AAV…I thought that he was a lock for at least $5 million.

Through the next 4+ years
Our window is now.  Let’s go!
