Even I don't like that! 3 years is fine but 5 to 6 per? Benning must really not be a fan of Lack or Markstrom.
There ya go... Big Bob says its pretty much done.

Demko will be ready to step in maybe when Millers deal is done???

Not sure how I like that term. Woulda preferred 2 years. Likely wins us just enough games to finish 10th in the West.

10th in the west is a good thing.

Hearing he got the money but no NTC/NMC. Not confirmed though.

Well the signing is confirmed just not the NTC/NMC stuff

Would rather 14th if we're going to miss.

It's "nitpick".
Actually, while we are picking nits it's worth pointing out that those were traditionally two separate words and one can correctly nit pick or nit-pick.

I don't know about that...I think in terms of Goalie contracts, 3 is pretty reasonable. I like definitive solutions, and even if Miller is not a permanent piece here, this marks "sink or swim" mode for Lack. If he can break through and move a declining Miller out of the #1 spot, we can probably spin Miller to another team for more youth. If he doesn't, then we dump Lack (and Markstrom) and I guess pray that Demko develops.

Regarding Miller...

More money and term than I wanted but if there's freedom to move the player if (when) the contract no longer fits here then I'm okay with that.

So do we trade Lack, or waive Markstrom? Demko's been described as having Schneider's pedigree if not his upside and it took Cory (Story, Allegory, Montessori) six years to break into the league full time so we'll need someone between Miller and him..

You guys are funny. Miller is a very good goalie. I think he gives us a chance in every game he plays. Linden Vey, Bonino are skilled offensive players. Shinkaruk, Horvat and Jensen could make it this year. Sbisa and Corrado will be close to playing regular minutes. I think Benning has done a good job so far. If he signs or trades for a top six winger I believe we are right back in the mix. Forget McDavid we won't be a lottery team.
