If you like a 2yr deal, you’re gonna LOVE 4 yrs. barf
The org clearly doesn’t view him as a 3rd pairing Dman and all this talk of term & $ is pure speculation - just as MB player movement is held very close to the vest and comes out of left field, I can’t recall a player contract that anyone predicted correctly.You can’t commit money and term to a 3rd pairing Dman and have a winner long term
Norlinder, Struble etc. are at least 3-4 years away from assuming regular NHL starting gigs....if they even pan outSo we have so many dmen prospects/youth and we still go out and trade for a depth dmen, and now are looking to sign him for over 2 years term ?
That in a nutshell is why this team has never developed their youth properly...at some point you gotta throw the young guys into action so they learn. Your depth dmen should come from your farm, not UFA...
