Do you find it interesting that you always seem to be the guy in the middle of this stuff Rranger? I don't see any other posters bickering or even having to think about getting their shorts in a knot. Sure that is just a big coincidence though.








I find it more interesting your always whining about something Shatty.

I bet you do. If I were in your position I would as well. You go on being the common denominator and bickering with multiple posters often and thinking it is everyone else. Good stuff man.

I agree on Skjei. It was a smart move by Gorton even if I do think it was a couple hundred K too much. To me waiting a year makes little. What would change in a year? He performs badly and his deal is 1 mill less? He performs really well and his deal goes up 1 mill? I don't see the upside of waiting. The deal makes sense and we now have him locked up for 6-years. I give Gorton a job well done on this one.

I disagree on the Skjei being paid for what he might be, comment.

He's a top 4 defenseman on pretty much any team in the league, with top pair potential. 5.25 million isn't top pair money.... what he might be is better than 5.25.

So, if we want to compare it to McD, it could absolutely be considered a deal if Skjei brings a consistant game. Considering an ever raising cap this could end up being a discount much as McD was.

Otherwise 5 million is on par with a 2nd pair LD. If we want to compare it to another Rangers contract..... it's half a million less than Staal

Skjei will be underpaid in a few seasons



Quite possibly. But even if he proves to just be a 2nd pair guy it's reasonable. I think after 2 full seasons he's proven that is his floor. He's a 2nd pair Dman.... unless you're Tampa.... Which we're not.... but even still, Skjei has been better than McDonagh....

So yeah. The potential to be as good or better than a Ryan McDonagh top 4 D on a contender/ top pair on a rebuild-bubble team is there.... No question this contract could prove to be a bargain

Any top 4 defenseman with a good agent isn't taking less than 5 million a year. That's just life in the NHL now. Hopefully, Namestnikov and Spooner can have good enough seasons where they can be dealt for a Grabner type of return.
