Fair AAV, too much term. I would have preferred 3 years as he'll be 34 when it kicks in

6.25M until he’s 37 this contract extension ToTaLiY doesn’t have the potential to backfire

Little high AAV for that term, but that's the price you have to pay to keep big UFAs. Decent move by Bergevin.

Fun fact: Nobody saw that coming - it wasn't in any rumours

Thought he would get 7+ Million regardless of term. Adjusted for cap, he actually took less than his previous contract. Might be a little dicey in the last 2 years but I think it's a good deal.

He's 32. I really don't like the term at that age.

This will look good in three years when Price, Weber, Petry, Edmundson make $28M...

Horrible deal. We might as well say bye to one KK, Suzuki, Romanov,Poehling, or Primeau when their ELC runs out.

Partypoopers will call him old when he is a on a 3 years - 40pts streak.

Until he looses all his speed, and his skate is as good as it gets, that AAV is a cheap deal.

A 750,000$ raise, come on guys🙄

I guess everyone saying Petro shouldn’t get 7 years should know that Petry will also be signed till 37.

Difference is Petry got 6.25 and Pietragelo will get 9+. Petry can become a #4 and still be worth his contract. Pietrangelo has to be a #1 to be worth his.

Best years of Petry were when he was +30 years old. He's like wine, better with age. Bouwmeester was reliable even if old, I think Petry has the same qualities that can help him stay reliable

Even if it seems risky, the extra year doesn't scare me that much. The AAV is low for the quality he'll bring in 21 & 22

Defenceman age well in this league. He’ll still be worth it at 34.

Y’all wanted to give Markov $3M at 40.

Good signing, but Montreal is spending a lot of money on some older defensemen. We'll see if this comes back to haunt them when their younger prospects and players need real contracts

When that time comes we can trade them.

Way to over value prospects. Only KK and Suzuki are poised to get decent bucks at the end of their ELC. Poehling is a bubble player and Primeau has many years behind Carey before we see if he’s an NHL goaltender.

If the Habs end up in cap hell, it won’t be because they signed Jeff Petry for fair value.

AAV is fine but the term worries me due to his age. His 100% worth that much right now but who knows if he will still be worth that much a year or two into his deal

Whoever signs AP is signing a long term deal to keep the AAV low for the present. A team like toronto won’t care if he’s a cap dump at 35 or 36 I’d they sign him and win a cup when he’s 30-33.
