They bought his $3.5M contract out ($1.17M on the cap this year + next) and gave him a $700K one, sunuva...

Morrisey signs at 8x50.

Myers @6 signing was a good deal

Morrisey is quite a bit better than Myers and quite a bit younger as well. That’s a good deal for the Jets.

Arizona is a terrible! Terrible franchise.
And they have a team that can compete for the very same playoff spots the Canucks are competing for.

They were -10 on goal differential and had 86 points. The hill they must climb is smaller than the Canucks.

Like the Canucks, many of the contributing players are young and may reach higher peaks.

Like the Canucks, they lost key parts of their team to injury last season -- most significantly Schmaltz and Chychrun and secondarily, Grabner.

Like the Canucks, their play last season was enhanced by a best-ever-season by their 29 yo starting goalie. Unlike the Canucks, Kuemper's performance isn't a good bet for a repeat. For two reasons -- it was a better performance than Marsktrom's and Kuemper has less raw ability.

The only significant contributing player lost from their roster is Galchenyuk -- losing Connaughton, Pannik, Mario Kempe -- those things aren't that important (though Pannik's failure to develop into something more was disappointing).

They add Kessel and Soderberg. Say what you will about Kessel, adding him and Schmaltz to the lineup will improve their biggest weakness (scoring).

I think the Canucks will be better than the Coyotes. Because I don't believe in Kuemper. And because what Kessel and Schmaltz are not great two way players, so they might add barely more than they take away. But Arizona is not LA or Anaheim or Edmonton (which unlike the former does have a small path to surprise b/c McJesus). If things break well for them, they could be competitive for a playoff spot.

I don’t know if he’s quite a bit better, he’s better, but the big difference is hes a young guy that probably still has some potential yet. I’d definitely take morrisey at this aav over trouba at 8 per year. Trouba is super overrated, I don’t think trouba is much better than Myers.

He’s a legit top pairing guy. He’s a LH version of Tanev that’s more durable, has more offence and tougher.

Morrisey is far better than Trouba or Myers

It should be a good deal for the Jets. But, 9 years is a pretty long commitment, as he still has 1 year left on his contract. I find it interesting that both the club and Morrissey wanted to sign early. My guess is the team saw a chance to buy up a lot of UFA years and the kid sees guaranteed big bucks. But, if he has a good season, the kid will leave $$ on the table. If he has a bad season, the team over-paid. Only time will tell, I guess.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

I’d like to see how good you think Myers is if he was able to play with morrissey. Morrissey has benefited from very good d partners. Other than morrissey that left side of their d is horrible.

Myers isn’t a top pairing guy so he’d have no business playing Byfuglien’s minutes. I don’t think you’ve seen Morrisey play much. But yeah Myers would look better with Morrisey carrying him. Morrisey is as good or better than Hamhuis in his prime.

No one is shitting on Myers here. But the Brown Lizard brought up that Vancouver got some great deal with Myers and compared it to Morrisey.


Morrisey is a far better defensive D man. Their offence is about the same but their defending skills aren’t close.

This is debatable.
Both were 3rd or 4th on Peggys depth chart last year and I've seen the list both ways in more than a few publishings. Dont get me wrong... I like JM alot, hes way tougher than you think for his size and hits like a truck but 6'8" Myers has a massive wingspan and skates very, very well for such a gangly freak.

If I'm picking I take 24 year old Morrisey obviously as did the Jets organization but I wouldnt put the gap between the 2 in rankings anywhere near as far apart as you
