The best part about that particular incident is that after play resumed, the Avs PR team kept putting Ghetto back on the jumbotron and the crowd roared each time. Ghetto just laughed and waved. Expert troll job.

Craig Morgan, Darren Dreger and others are reporting that OEL will re-sign in Glendale for the aforementioned 8 x 8 deal.

Yotes have a kinda old but interesting D corps next season: OEL, Goligoski, Demers, Hjalmarsson, Chychrun, Connauton, Oesterle.

Looks solid to me.

Christian Dvorak, in the final year of his ELC, signs a 6-year extension with a $4.45 million AAV.

One thing that's interesting to note--hardly anything in terms of signing bonuses. It almost looks structured in anticipation of a 2019 lockout (he gets a $300K bonus in 2019, but $0 beyond that). Maybe that's why they consummated this so quickly.

I honestly don't know much about the guy, that's more or less 3C money, he strikes me as a pretty good, but not great player.

I don't buy the outcry of "IT'S GONNA RUIN THE MARKET!!!" Oh, stop...this doesn't seem like an egregious overpay like, say, David Clarkson or something like that.

UFA deals can't be used for precedent in RFA contracts, but RFA deals are. So a Clarkson deal wouldn't have any impact on these deals, while Dvorak won't necessarily ruin the market but can have a future impact.

Burtch was pointing out that Dvorak's got good 5v5 goal production on bad Arizona teams. Banking on improving in the future. While he hasn't lit the world on fire, some teams could have benefitted greatly from taking risks with deals like these.

Well, Chayka's been on record as saying contracts should be purchases of future performance, not a reward for past performance. He's definitely putting his money where his mouth is.

Someone posted this is essentially Nazem Kadri money, but I don't think said person is taking market inflation into account. Kadri would likely be signing for a bit more if he were a free agent now than back then.

This is such an obvious thing that NHL GMs mostly haven't figured out. He's a middle 6 guy at 21, so there's room for him to become a bargain if he becomes a 50 point guy.

Reminds me of the Rakell deal, which might honestly be the best deal in hockey in right now.

Kadri was also older and buying out a lot more UFA years. It's not a good comparison.
