Of course I’m at work and couldn’t get on this right away, but thanks to those who gave me the heads up in emails and the comments section of my previous post as soon as it happened.
Our guy signs for two years, with the first being 2 million clams, then $3.75 the second. Great news. Now the lads can get on with the task of being a solid contender, although we need Max back.
I really didn’t know if P.K. and Marc Bergevin would get this inked or not. The two sides seemed just too far apart. Now it’s done, but you have to wonder why a contract of this type couldn’t have been finalized earlier. Make P.K. was just getting too antsy and needed it to be wrapped up, plain and simple.
P.K. will get the bigger bucks down the road. And it’ll be mega bucks if he becomes a Norris Trophy candidate, which I think he’ll be.
