not overreacting just been saying the same thing all day and gets old repeating it...someone will have to be waived thats a fact...who will it be who knows but he would be one of the first on that list

Yep, makes perfect sense to sign a player to a four year contract just to waive them. That'll show them! Here please take a million dollars a year for the next four years just to get waived and suck.

I'm shocked this doesn't make complete, total, sense to you?

Oh, and just give it time. Like four more years when the thirteen scrubs we just signed contracts expire like we wont sign 10 more between now and then

Yes we just sign players to four year contracts and waive them. That's the plan and then wonder why nobody will sign here.

Yes. When you make a bad deal the idea is to make it really bad so you choke on it.

Seidenberg is still available. So is Chimera. He hasn't signed them yet.

Just remeber, Cpt., it could always be worse.

Looks like Kucherov re-signed with Tampa. Would be nice to trade for Tyler Johnson but he p[probably has a NTC and he is not a 4th line player so forget it.

In other news today the earth really is round and the sky is blue.

This is my biggest question which I brought up yesterday and was happy someone else pointed it out;

"Even if we assume he makes the league minimum until the details come out, why on earth would Lou just toss four years at him for absolutely no reason? Who was he bidding against? What leverage does Johnston have that Lamoriello felt absolutely convinced that handing a player with little-to-know offensive upside a long-term deal would be wise in this current NHL landscape?"

It makes zero sense why four years and a one way deal. Why just throw it at him?

It's the same with Leo Cpt. What other team was going to offer 4 years? Because JT left does not mean Lou has to cave to all players now.

I love everyone having heart failure of Johnston contract. It's almost as absurd as everyone who went nuts over Mayfield making 1.1 mill a year. Who the freak cares? JT signed in Toronto. We have over 25 mill in cap room. You have a hall of fame GM and a Hall of fame coach. We have real coaching staff on the bench too. This team has tons of talent on the team. Let's see what a real coaching staff can do with Pulock, Toews, Ho Sang, Bellows, etc. stop freaking out about small non-impact contracts. They don't friggin matter. It's not your money.

The 4 years will prevent a team with cap issues/worries from claiming him when he goes through waivers. It's certainly not an issue for us at the moment.

The fact that he's Ross Johnston will also prevent a team from claiming him

The Isles may suck, but at least they can beat up the other team.

This who cares attitude with blowing cap space on multiple sub par players is something I have a hard time comprehending. Someone posted yesterday that in 2019/2020 we have over 20 million committed to this crap. You think that's insignificant? You're completely fine watching a total, complete pile of shat team again and for the foreseeable future? You think Trotz is going to somehow make a player like Johnston a real nhl player? Come on give me a break.
