    I guess that number was right. I posted these numbers in the other thread. Not sure I am wild about that deal.

    Wow.... I never thought he’d want to come back.

    Ive been extremely lucky, I am doing what I love to do, and playing in a series every hockey player dreams of. I wanted to share this moment, not only with my friends and family, but with a few kids that are in a need of a reason to smile!

    I've thought about it and let me be the first to say it:

    Laughable deal for JVR. No emotion involved, strictly on hockey merit it's a horrible investment. Both in length and AAV.

    I will bookmark and save this post and will be the first to eat crow if I'm wrong. This is just spending money to spend it.

    Who on this team can score 36? We dont have anyone. Is what it is. Had to overpay. He doesnt play a physical game so no wear and tear really on his body. Simmer is good as gone.

    Agreed Cheyney...easy way out...had money to spend, so he spent it.
    Makes it look like hes making a big move to improve the club but in reality JVR is just another player that fits right in. Regular season wonder, who's big in stature but tiny in heart.
    Old Hextall just couldn't bring himself to improve the club thru a trade.
    I actually have to say I hate this signing if it's TRUE and only deepens my disdain for Hextall.

    An old whipping boy is now my new whipping boy.
    This team is going nowhere.

    I don't disagree at all with what you're saying but I look at the role jvr played in TO. He averaged less than 15mns ice time every night. Point being, he had talent around him that he probably won't have here. He's going to be counted on to do more. I just think for this team, this roster, the way it's currently constructed, it's a terrible deal to give a 29 year old.

    And that's the main point right there, excellent point Zeus...i worry about JVR's heart and intangibles when he's counted on (and being paid) to be "the guy".

    This is what a top 6 forward costs in free agency in 2018. It is what it is. Especially when the free agent market is so thin.
