In response to huntbri's comment:
I also know most of the guys are being way overpaid but Clarkson at around $5 M is one of the guys under the circumstances was worth paying for.
At 7 years ? Too long.
I agree with you that the length of the contract is too long. 5 years would be better.
I am a big Seguin fan (I know he has his short comings but at 21 I still thought he had a chance to overcome some of them). That being said I am mostly excited about this team.
1. They will have Tuukka locked up.
2. They have all the D back except Ference. Hamilton, Krug and Bart should just get better. Morrow is also in the mix.
3. Their 2nd line if it is Bergy, Marchand and Erickson is going to be a scary two way line.
4, Their 4th line with Paille and Campbell and perhaps still Thornton is still a great 4th line.
5. I like the idea of Kelly on the 3rd line with a couple of younger guys - Soderberg or players from Providence/or guys aquired in the Seguin trade.
6. They are better by getting rid of Peverly.
7. The one thing they must do is find a good right winger that can play with and compliment Krejci and Lucic. If they do they should have a chance at another good run.
