Go find a new team then
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.
Classic Benning move.
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.
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.
Join us with the Kraken?
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.
I have to find a new team cuz I think our GM is a tire fire? Superb logic
It's a FAQ move.
Waiting for the tweet: 3, 2, 1....
Rather him give out these 3 mill contractsthan being stuck with 8-10 mill ones like duchene and weber
Its 3 mill and youre blowing a gasket
It’s yet another overpay. . Blowing a gasket? Lol
Its actually not a overpay. He woulda made this exact amount as a UFA
Not a fan. The Canucks should be signing Pettersson and Hughes first.
And the vast majority of UFAs end up overpaid.
I just got off the phone with Peter Chiarelli and he even said it’s a bad deal
or you could do neither? Both suck lol
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
Or 6 million ones like Myers and Eriksson.
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.
We do need some vets on the team and 3 mill is not 8 mill, u need to chill.
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
Good God... Nucks have so many good young pieces yet they keep doing these stupid signings
