Lebanc took a Johnsson style bet on himself. Only problem for the sharks is that he is MUCH better than Johnsson.
Either way steal for this year but next year they'll have to pay the piper...

I bet they made him think it was 10AAV and then switched contracts moments before he signed.

His agent is on Doug Wilson's payroll.

I am going to bet that there are very achievable performance bonuses (10 goals, 40 GP, etc.) built into this. he should have got 2x2.75 or similar to Kapanen/Johnsson/Kerfoot.

By using the bonuses they can have a low AAV this year, wait for Melker/Dillon/Dell to fall off the books, and deal with the bonus overages next year, as it doesn't look like any young studs are coming too soon

RFAs aren't eligible for performance bonuses. Only ELCs and 35 plus.

This is just a steal. It's like a show me deal, but he already seems to have shown enough. This is the type of deal someone should have done an offer sheet on. He would have been worth throwing $4M with skem term at with only putting up a 2nd in comp.

That's how you spot a selfless winner - he doesn't his raise in order to get another shot at winning the cup for JT.

Marner, take notes.

I'm very confused. I was thinking he'd sign a contract similar to Kapanen or Johnsson. Something like $3.5M X 3-4 years.

I"m guessing we're gonna see new Thornton and Marleau contracts in the near future.

What? Unreal! hushed



Kevin "Lucky" Hayes 19 G + 36 A = 55 points ------ 7 YEARS $50,000,000
Kevin "Poor" Labanc 17 G + 39 A = 56 Points ------- 1 YEAR $1,000,000

Should we wait until that Contract is confirmed ------- that cannot be real

Please tell me that the person who voted "No" in the poll thought the question was being asked from the player's perspective . . .
