Not a word on Loui., but confusion on Bo.

If we aren't willing to go 6 years on him, he would sign elsewhere. Can definitely have the debate on wether or not we should've been players at all today, but you know this ownership/management refuses to see the writing on the wall and go for a rebuild. Loui will give us the extra 20-30 goals needed to move us 8-10 points in the standings and get us into that 10th-14th overall draft pick. But chances are there will be some nice goals with him and the Sedins lining up together.
His deal isn't close to the worst one today. Lucic, Ladd, Backes are all far worse contracts. $6M for a 25-30 goal guy ain't bad at all. But we will hate this deal when he's 35, just like most of the other contracts signed today.

He's a decent player I guess, but the term is definitely too long. I wouldn't mind a 2-3 year deal, maybe 4, but no way to 6. I guess that's the market rate for that kind of player. Yikes, he pretty much making Sedin dollars. I was impressed with JB when he showed prudence by refusing to give Iginla and Verby 3 year deals, now he gives a player of similar age/ilk 6 years. Ouchies! Sure, I get that he might be great with Sedins, but what about after? I think we'll get decent years out of him maybe 3 out of the 6 years.
Read em and weep boyz!
