Seeing as how you're bragging about that post, one can only assume you feel Loui has been worth every penny thus farTodd Bersnoozi wrote: ↑Fri Jan 12, 2018 12:01 amWell, if u really wanna bring up what ppl said in the past:
Read em and weep boyz!The Todd wrote: ↑Fri Jul 01, 2016 5:12 pmYeah, I'm not very thrilled with the Eriksson signing. He's a decent player I guess, but the term is definitely too long. I wouldn't mind a 2-3 year deal, maybe 4, but no way to 6. I guess that's the market rate for that kind of player. Yikes, he pretty much making Sedin dollars. I was impressed with JB when he showed prudence by refusing to give Iginla and Verby 3 year deals, now he gives a player of similar age/ilk 6 years. Ouchies! Sure, I get that he might be great with Sedins, but what about after? I think we'll get decent years out of him maybe 3 out of the 6 years.
... and will be worth every penny next season as well (and "maybe" the season after that).
But what about the rest of that post where you talk about the other options:
Brouwer - his 4 year, $18M contract is a millstone, he's been HORRIBLE.The Todd wrote: ↑Fri Jul 01, 2016 5:12 pmI would have been more happy with a Brouwer for sure, less dollars and term. Not as talented, but a BC boy and brings much needed size to our foward core. If we really wanted an offensive guy, I'd rather take a chance on a Vanek/Stall type, way cheaper. Or even give Verby a chance to redeem himself, 1 year deal @ like $2-$3M. Weiser was a bit of a bargain too, I'd take him back.
Vrbata - took a big dump on this team, no way was he coming back.
Weise - his 4 year, $9.4M contract is awful, he's a 4th-liner, a regular healthy scratch.
Once again you have made Mr Eriksson look good, pat yourself on the back Todd...
