    What an awful signing. Benning learned the wrong lesson from the Toffoli debacle. It wasn't that letting a random player walk that was the problem, it was overpaid bottom-six junk combined with the OEL whale hunt was the reason he couldn't resign Toffoli. With a flat cap, some other player will be a cap casualty because of this contract in a couple years.

    I don't think it's so much this deal in a vacuum that's problematic.

    Vancouver has so many bad contracts of this variety that they've kind of lost the 'luxury' of being able to continue to make signings like this.

    Lol.
    I bailed on my old team years ago and as tough as I thought it would be I’m glad I did. The frustration was greater than the pleasure.

    Pearson didn’t look that good this year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts to regress. Not a big fan of this signing given our cap issues already.

    Not a fan. The Canucks should be signing Pettersson and Hughes first.

    And the vast majority of UFAs end up overpaid.

    In a flat cap? Fat chance. And if could, Christ then you let him go. . He’s easily replaceable at a fraction of the cost

    Lol how do you know this? We have been burned by the Sutter, Roussel and Beagle contracts and you are defending a very similar contract to yet another bottom six player? This contract licks ass and was completely unnecessary and pointless. It’s a mind-blowingly awful decision.

    Drance mentioned yesterday that management was scared to lose another respected vet in the locker room after the Markstrom/Tanev departure and how it affect team morale. Pearson's agent clearly knew this a squeezed them for every last cent.

    To be in contention you need a significant amount of your roster outplaying their contracts. These kinds of deals leave zero room for that. If Pearson returns to his peak last season's form for 3 years, this will be a fine deal. If he continues at his current pace, its a bad deal. If he continues to decline, it's a Sutter deal.

    There's no room for error right now and Benning does not seem to understand that in the slightest.

    3.2 for 3 years seems reasonable for a 20 goal guy. habs signed Byron to similar longer deal...which was dumb.
    but pearson is still only 28
