Discussion in 'Arizona Coyotes' started by The Feckless Puck, May 16, 2018.
The advantageous tax situation in Arizona also factors in when comparing to other markets.
I was hoping this would happen, I was optimistic this would happen.
However, only OEL could make it happen. He has made a MASSIVE commitment to the organisation, and very much to us too, the fans.
It is likely that his agent pushed for him to test the market, as any agent should suggest his guy to do. Those opportunities don't come so often.
But hey, OEL looked at this, and Chayka, Barroway, Tocchet found a way to get him to believe in what is ahead.
And here we are, we have our captain, we have our face of the franchise.
I am happy to believe.
Congrats to all involved. Santé to all of us; to better, exciting days ahead.
First time an all star caliber Coyote has re-upped with the team at what would be described as their career defining contract? Can only think of one UFA from another team signing a similar career contract with the Coyotes....Jovo.
I hope this deal doesn't include a trade we find out about on July 1....
Loss/no luck/Paranoia is just a way of life for Coyote fans....
Deal is official, no AAV yet. 8 years.
It's official, nine more years of Oliver.
Yessssssssss! Waiting for press conference announcing captaincy
still psyched about this
No one wants to play in Arizona.
Pretty weird. McDonagh contract had the same thing.
Best signing this summer! Doan 2.0 in respect to team loyalty.
#triggered by how he pronounces Coyotes.
So we finally have a captain?
Another good one here. Again, no one wants to play in Arizona.
Best signing in franchise history.
How would he know if he left money on the table? He wasn’t a UFA. Were teams talking to him 13-14 months in advance?
Damn, NHL network hasn't discussed our signings pretty much at all. Feels good to be a Coyote fan.
And just as I say that...
He could have had waaaayyy more than $8.25 aav in an open market bidding war.
Literally impossible to prove in either direction.
Not if he puts up another 14 goal 40 point year. 8.25 sounds about right.
Man Doaner is the gift that just keeps on giving!!
All that’s left is to put a C on his jersey.
Not true. The ones that don’t care about winning do.
