I think that's pretty fair considering he has had only one good season. Hopefully he continues to develop and we can get a consistent 30g from him. 😁

I was expecting a 2 year bridge deal, this is an extremely team friendly deal for how much wood brings to the table. Happy this got done before the season starts!

Maybe I'm the only one to feel this way..

I think he's a 3rd liner on his BEST DAY. I'm not a huge Wood fan. I'll root for him, obviously, but he doesn't impress me. He has speed. great. this isn't a speed skating competition. He lacks hockey smarts, play-making ability, and isn't a sniper. No, it's not crazy money, but it's nearly 3 million for a 3rd/4th line energy guy. I won't raise hell over it, I just hope he shows he's worth it.

I think if he gets his game better he can be a first liner like how Kbuble was to the talent.

Miles is certainly a player with flaws in his game. But if you score 19 goals before you turned 23 in this league you are a legit 3rd liner already. He might get better. I’d be thrilled if he’s similar to David Clarkson.

Regardless, I think this team needs him and I’m glad he’s signed.

Maybe he will "only" be a third liner....but, 2.75 per is a good deal for a 23 year old 3rd liner.

Are the Devs trimming their roster today or after the game tomorrow?

An injury prone loser that got paid after one 30 goal season, only to phone it in for the next 4 years and healthy scratched his way into unofficial retirement?

yeah, that'd be thrilling....

Not sure if advanced stats prove me wrong, but he always seemed like a defensive liability out there. If a play wasn't gift-wrapped for him he had a hard time creating something out of nothing, even with his speed. We'll see what he does this year. Hopefully he continues to trend up, because what I think is a very average or worse player will be taking up a roster spot for the next 4 seasons.

Sorry you missed tha boat on that one but clarky was great for us and even though he only hit 30 goals once he did have a 30 goal pace in the lockout shortened season I believe.

Agreed, and that's a great deal to sign a big kid who skates/hits/scores in a 3rd line role. He is inked until he is 27 so we get his best years on the cheap. No complaints.

Can we all talk about how great Nico is gonna be? We never had "one of the best centerman" in game on the team.

Its gonna be amazing!

we still don't have one of the best centers in the game.. far from it. I'm HOPING he puts up 65 points this year. Jury is out on how great he's gona be. He wasn't touted as being a McDavid or even a Matthews when he was drafted. He has sure skill, but we'll see just how good he ends up being.

"missed the boat" is a perfect way to describe his post contract career

Well thanks for the update. We were all wondering what happened after the 7 year 37M contract.

So much for Speers and Kapla. Josh Jacobs doesn't seem to be the guy either.

but this Smith kid..

At least speers scored short handed... Not sure what pretty boy mikey mcleod has shown them to keep him past the first set of cuts....
