Great deal for Vegas. In a few years this is going to be a massive steal
That should be a good contract for both. A little extra to the player now with signs pointing to it being team friendly in the near future.
Nylander and Ritchie still left.
Wow, nice deal for both sides.
I think Shea comes out the winner on this deal. It’s not terrible for Vegas, yet it’s not great.
Either way, Theodore is a great player so congrats to Knights fans who don’t have to deal with this anymore.
Good deal for both sides. If he shows that last season wasn't a fluke and continues to develop, this is a huge win for Vegas.
He was the asset I wanted Vancouver to target in the Kesler trade. Instead we have Sutter and Gudbranson...
Damn, good for both sides I’d say
Fair deal, nothing amazing but fair for both sides.
He's not worth that cap hit yet, but he could be in the future.
No leverage at all and he gets over $5M per year. Am I the only one who thinks that Vegas overpaid? That money is in the same tier as Lindholm/Rielly/Jones etc. Admittedly it bought more UFA years but Theodore isn’t half the Dman those guys are.
Theodore's agent deserves an award.
Good young defender, but 7 years at veteran top 4 money is a huge win for Theodote after only 100ish NHL games and a single full season.
Vegas didn't get nearly the discount they should have for taking on this kind of risk. Does that mean it'll be a bad contract? Probably not. But Theodore left a lot less on the table to take the long term deal than most RFAs have done relative to their ability+potential+resume.
Theodore wins now, Vegas wins later.
I think this is about right... my guess was 6 years @ $5m AAV.
Can’t argue with this deal. Good job Vegas.
That added context makes Theodore getting this kind of deal more understandable. VGK must be bullish on him, and be probably would have rather bet on himself if they were offering something closer to previous market value for a player of his resume and perceived potential.
Really like this deal, he’ll be 30 when it’s done. Just entering his prime, nothing to regret here.
@zeke pretty good for a guy who was bassically on waivers a year ago.
If he doesn’t learn how to play in his own end there will be plenty to regret. He’s soft as butter and questionable defensively right now.
