    Im not saying he's going to suck forever either, but signing that deal was ridiculous, minimal potential upside, all the potential downside imaginable.

    I really wanted that bridge.

    And would have no* issue with him getting 7x7 in 2 years, if he earned it.

    I'll reiterate what I said throughout this thread. It was not my preference to commit long term money to Skjei before he proved himself. I don't think a rebuilding team should be rolling dice on unproven talent like that, or you end up with junk contracts.

    I still think it will work out fine, and at worse will be just an "average" value of a deal. Most of the issues I see with him at the start of this season are largely positional. He either gets turned around (thus falling down when trying to make up for it), or like last night where he was out of position with Toews coming in and he ran into McQuaid.

    This would have been ideal. I would always rather pay a player what they are worth moreso than rolling the dice, especially as a rebuilding team. If this bad play becomes more of a permanent look for Skjei, the Rangers will not be able to pivot and they will have yet another traffic cone on a long term deal on the blueline.

    Wew, lad.
    I take it back. This guy is easily top 10 in hyperbole, oversimplification and false statements.

    I'm also probably top three on the planet in my field. It's nice.

    That's two top tens I have going for me.
