There has been a lot of talk goin' round yond inter-webs bout Unc'a Cliff getting a little zany with the free agency, but I'm gonna put that in perspective. Show you what crazy assed contracts we DON'T have to deal with in the imediate future.
Vancouver signs RFA forward Kyle Wellwood to a 1 year deal worth $997,500
- Sure, we don't get to make battered fist jokes anymore, but then we won't have too.
Washington signs UFA goaltender Jose Theodore to a 2 year deal worth $9 million
- Thats right, Jose 'Rogain' Theodore at 4.5 million a year...Christ almighty.
Colorado signs UFA goaltender Andrew Raycroft to a 1 year deal worth $800,000
-Saying they get a deal because of the buyout situation is like saying you got some expired salmon on sale at the Price Chopper. Mmmmm Salmon-ella (Booyah!).
Chicago signs UFA defenceman Brian Campbell to an 8 year deal worth $56.8-million
- 7.1 mill a year for a purely offensive defenseman, Kabby is the deal of the century.
New York Rangers sign UFA defenceman Wade Redden to a six-year contract worth $39 million
- Redden sucks as much as he did last year in Ottawa, now going to a worse defensive team in the Rangers and is still gonna pull 5.75 a year. Good for them, they deserve it. Stupid Rangers.
All that and free-agency has all but started. Don't you feel a little better now?
I do.....I think.
Jeff Finger? 14 Mill? Are You FUCKING Kidding Me?
