High cap hit, but he's money in the bank. Also a nice story of coming back to the team he was drafted by.

Same money as E. Kane with a lesser term. And JVR's numbers + fancy stats are far better than EKane's. I'll take this all day.

JVR still is only an offensive zone player who can't skate.

As a Pens fan I hate to admit that's a good sign. But I'm happy because sign JvR is still not enough to Flyers beat Pens in playoffs. They still have no decent goalie to stop our huge offense.

I'm a Leaf fan who has enjoyed watching him score for the last few years. He's a good guy & I wish him the best.

BUT (and this but is needed)....there's a reason he plays 12 minutes at even strength & a reason why there was no offer from the Leafs.

He's huge defensively liability (partly due to his skating - but mostly due to his effort). I spent 6 years hoping he'd improve. He didn't & likely won't now.

He's good for like 15 powerplay goals a year though - the guy can stand in front of the net & tip pucks like no-one else - he definitely deserves some credit there.

This is just an opinion - but he seems to have a perfectly neutral affect on games (he scores more goals than most & will cost you more goals than most).

He was sooo good offensively and so horrible defensively his whole career as a Leaf it was almost unbelievable. He typically shied away from body contact which was discouraging as one of our biggest forwards in Toronto.

He had an inflated shooting % this year which inflated his goals to a career high. JVR is being paid almost a MIL more than Marleau, who is admittedly 10 years older, but also a MUCH more complete player. Marleau is a MUCH better skater, plays the body, can play center or the wing properly and also has soft hands around the net.

JVR had a career contract year and cashed in. As a rabid Leaf fan who really liked JVR on and off the ice I must say that I am glad that we didn't give him this contract. I wish him well though.

Not a bad signing, but doesn't JVR fill the same role as Wayne Simmonds? PP net-front guy, poor skater and not great defensively. Does this signal a Simmonds trade?
