great news for the Kings D
EDIT: beat me to it, mods get rid of this.
Nice signing, great for both parties. Congrats to Roy for working his way from a 7th round pick to earning a nice contract. Kings lock up a top 4 defenseman for fair market value and show the rest of the team that hard work will be rewarded.
Solid player and at a fair price. Good on him, kid works hard. Defense is set on the right side for years.
Stellar. Most underrated player in NHL.
It comes in 3's.
1. Amadios no mas
2. Roy locked up.
Since 1 and 2 are immense for the team, I'm expecting 3 to be stupendous. Play your hand, Rob. You hold apx 20 or so excellent assets and have cap.
Really stoked to have some stability on the back end, what a gem he has turned into
f***ing eh. Wanted a longer extension but a solid AAV.
Got him cheap IMO. No brainer signing, good deal.
Glad to see he's signed but I wanted it for longer. He's a UFA at the end of the contract so that worries me. Or am I worrying over nothing?
You can start worrying in 2024 when his contract is up.
Never really thought much about him as a prospect, but he's shown tremendous growth over the past couple of years. Fully deserved
His contact ends as Faber’s will begin. Nice succession planning.
A $9m+ commitment is a tad higher than I expected, but Roy is giving up UFA years, so makes sense.
Absolutely love this. Great signing. He's so solid, and the absolute worst case scenario here is that one of our prospects plays better than him (Faber? Grans?) and he's the best 3RD in the league.
Nice signing by Blake. Seems like a solid deal for both sides. Bet neither side was thinking this contract would be signed after 2015 draft (7th round pick),
Turcotte makes his debut and doesn’t miss a beat
He's already 26.
nice aav, nice commitment
hard to be angry about this, high likelihood we get a couple years of relative underpayment out of the contract and he may still have the chance to make more on his next
Wow! What a bargain!
I don’t understand folks saying fair deal ... It is a fantastic deal for the Kings.
I love this, Roy has been an amazing find
True that but I would have liked to have seen a 4-5 year deal. He should still be in his prime defenseman years at the end of that longer deal.
I will go out on a limb and say i am happy its a short term deal. The league generally signs player for to long and the last years of contract always seem to age bad. As pointed out earlier there will be young defenseman ready to step in at the end of this contract should we wish to move on. I think Blake did a great job on this one.
