This one confuses me.
I was expecting a one year deal because of the plethora of CBJ defensemen. This could be 1.65M of healthy scratch time for some games, not because Kukan deserves to be scratched, but because of the amount of guys competing for a spot.
Somebody needs to be moved off this blue line. I thought Kukan was the trade bait. Alright deal in that they have more security beyond Murray and Savard's expiration. This deal is good in that they have confidence in Kukan's ability to improve: there's a 700k salary difference from year 1 to 2, so they are looking for improvement. A couple grand more than I was expecting, but certainly not mindbogglingly much.
