    Well done.

    All in all, pretty good term and price for the term.

    Time to play up, Shea.

    That is 3/4 slot dman money (heck maybe 5 slot money five years from now).

    If you assess him as a surefire NHLer then this deal is at worst okay. If you believe he can be a top pairing 2/3 role player at 22+ minutes per game through his upcoming prime... then it's a very good deal. And if you think he could fill Nate Schmidt's role on the team as the #1 dman, then it's a steal.

    A 36+ mill deal for a guy less proven?
    Nate will now expect 7+ mill per... a 50 mill deal.

    This seems like a good contract for the team. I almost suggested just to give him 6x5 in the Theodore holdout earlier today. Ha

    Canadian - so he'll have to get US visa before traveling to Vegas. Paperwork submitted (Monday night/)Tuesday and he may be able to travel by Thursday (or even Wednesday).

    Love locking up Shea long term on a team friendly deal. Definitely feel better having him ready for the opener, especially without Nate for 20 games.

    Welp, I was totally wrong. When Brady Skjei signed for 6x5, I didn't think Theo was gonna get that type of deal. Then when the two guys last week signed their bridge deals, I thought the stage was set for him to sign a short term deal.

    TBH, I'm not sure how I feel about the term or the dollar value, I'm just glad the stalemate is over.

    How do you know he's not already in the States?

    One of Brannstrom and Bischoff will stay according to McPhee.

    long term like I wanted

    :pickle::pickle::pickle::pickle::pickle::pickle::pickle:

    Brannstrom gets to develop in the AHL & not burn off his ELC and then dominate the WJCs.

    Doesn't have active visa to enter (for work).

    Conceivably he could enter as tourist, but he'd have to leave and re-enter.

    Camp on hiatus for two days. Hopefully, Theodore will be in town for Thursday's practice.

    Possible. Canadian visas much easier to get than European.

    This is a really nice deal. Overpayment for one, maybe two seasons, but this contract ends when there's still a bit of prime left at 30 years old. Dude's ceiling is top pairing defenseman right now and I'm excited to see what he can do. Go Knights!

    I share you pessimism.

    A nitrous go kart with no seat belt. He's great but no way he can fill Nate's shoes.
