    Pretty steep for Brady Skjei currently. That said, hopefully he can bounce back and not only make it worth it but make that deal look like a bargain.

    Love it! If he turns out to be a #2-3D this is a bargain in 2 years. Worst case he turns out to be a #4-5D and then it’s still a good deal in 2 years.

    Like his potential. If he lives up to that potential, it is a good deal. Not sold on this approach for a rebuilding team, but I like him as a player so it's fine

    These contracts have always worked out well for the Rangers.

    Absolutely not a good deal if this happens.

    Fuckin A awesome, way to go Gorton!!! This is the first time the Rangers have actually done a smart contract like this since McD, except this one will be even more of a bargain.

    With how the cap goes up, 5.25m will be fine for a signed «young-ish» top 4D. In worst case he’s a trusted and solid bottom-pair guy, then I guess 5.25 is not good, but not very bad either.

    I still think he will be a top pair player, so I love the deal.

    It certainly does not seem like the right approach when rebuilding, where everything should be earned, and tthat creates a healthy competitive environment. Instead this feels like gambling, even if it is a somewhat educated gamble.

    I wonder if they go for this same deal for Kevin Hayes. Would probably cost a little more, given he would be selling more UFA years.

    How is this a bad approach? GM locks up our best (young vet) defender for his entire prime. Done at 30. There are no other Dmen to lock up. This is the way you build a team. Draft well, draft often, develop and lockup your best young vets.

    This should be a good, fair deal for both sides. I'm hoping that this past season was his basement. He should only be trending upward from here...hopefully.

    Time to get a 76 jersey.
    LGR!

    If they go 6 years, it could be identical. Hence, a 5 x 5 deal for Hayes, also makes sense. Pretty solid sources in June said his ask was 5.5 mil. No idea about term, but they can't be far apart at this point.

    Definitely. He'll bounce back, just like Zucker did.

    Way too much of a cap hit. If he doesn’t bounce back they will totally regret this contract
