So, at the moment Gillis has signed that little doughboy Wellwood to a 1 year contract for under a million, which is a good depth move, and offered Sundin a $20 million/2 year deal if the rumours are to be believed. Holy shit! Insanity. It’s never too early to start drinking on Canada Day, right?
*Updated* Gillis signed David Backes to an offer sheet. 3 yrs $2.5 mill per year. He’s a big boy and likes to play physical. I don’t see St.Louis not matching though. And this isn’t helping Gillis in his efforts to have the other GMs give him one half of their BFFs for ever friendship necklaces.
*Updated* You know, it’s too bad the Canucks didn’t buy out Jeff Cowan when they had the chance. I would love to have Georges Laraque on our fourth line. Our teeny, tiny skilled guys would feel a lot better having him in the lineup I think. And he is actually a little bit skilled, and is supposedly awesome in the community.
