Ross Johnston's four-year extension with the #isles carries a $1M AAV.


Jeez, they didn't even sign him to the minimum. I am expecting Trotz to announce his resignation at any moment.

Yeah this makes complete sense. Beginning tto think Lou was a Trojan horse sent by the Maple Leafs to put the final nail in this miserable organization's coffin.

Does not sound that crazy at this point. Does Lou think Wahlstrom and Dobson and some of the other players picked this year are 10 years away? Isles had a great day and they follow it up with these lousy signings?

I would say 2 years maybe 3.... i would rather see them protected in minors then bringing them up and giving up another 1st round pick to protect roster... Really hope thats his plan if not i will join you guys on the cliff

Hmmm... I see Lou has been busy.

Maybe some of these deals are influenced by Trotz? He’s always seemed to do well with bottom 6 players, from Tootoo and Ward to Smith-Pelly and Wilson.

I believe someone posted that already. Nobody posted this though:

Darling 4.15 million .888 last season
Mrazek 1.5 million .891 last season

Not sure if this is out there yet, but all four years for Ross Johnston are one-way. #Isles




Nope. This entire organization is total dogshit.

I'm not jumping off a cliff but I am saying it's a completely stupid pointless move. There's literally nothing positive about it. It makes no sense like every other signing and trade Lameriello has made so far.
- Cptmjl

It's (frank)ing crazy. I was trying to give benefit of the doubt, but...I'm done.

Don’t worry though, I can fix all the Canes problems.

Lucic, Aberg, Koskinen and Brossoit for Mrazek.

I don’t care much for the signings either, but I’ll give Lou two seasons to make some progress. Considering that Snow got twelve seasons, two doesn’t sound terribly unreasonable.

I'm all about giving someone time but come on this is plain stupidity. These aren't contracts that are just blips that will have a short term effect on us.

Oh I agree completely. Yet there is nothing you nor I can actually do to change any of it, thus I’m willing to give Lou a short leash of trust and hope he knows something I don’t.

So basically, Johnston can be waived every September for the next four years. He will just make the same amount whether he is in Bridgeport or Long Island. And assuming his salary is close to minimum, he won’t impact the NHL cap while he’s in Bridgeport.

This is still a very NOT IDEAL way to operate an NHL franchise. A long term deal to fringe player is still ridiculous. But the one-way deal has no bearing on where RJ will be playing as long as the Isles are willing to pay the same salary in BPT (which they seem to be ok with).

You better give him four years because it will take that long to get these dogpoop players off the team.

Dont really think there were teams battling for Ross Johnston so we had to quickly sign him to a four year deal to reach the cap floor. This is just as dumb as the Pelech, Mayfield, and Strait deals. Just completely pointless and without reasoning. It's like Snow never left.
- Cptmjl


Don’t forget the Hickey, Martin, Lehner and Komorov deals. Or really anything done since The Snow firing.

I don’t know who this Guy Lamoriello is or what he has done in the sport of Hockey in the past but he sure sucks.
