GREAT DEAL!!!

Cirelli is a legit #2 right now, amazing defensively, and can fill in in a pinch on the top line.

With Kuchurov OUT and maybe Stamkos as well, He'll need to step up in a big way...


Also now everyone can stop trading for him to be their #3C...(I've done that lol)

Honestly not in love with this signing. I think it works but it’s not great. At least he’ll still be a RFA at the end.

Was expecting the AAV to be a bit lower (around 4.3-4.5), but can't really complain.

You guys are so spoiled in Tampa. I don't know the gm keeps getting people signed below market. Market value would likely have been 6ish

In a flat cap world for the foreseeable future, this is a bit high.

No way; 6ish? You've got to be kidding me especially in a flat cap world for the foreseeable. Let the kid at least put up 50 points or 20 goals in a season before paying him 6ish.

Compare him to say Barkov who signed his extension in January of his third season. (not after the season). They had similar scoring numbers, Barkov was on his way to being 6th in Selke voting. Cirelli has been 7th and 4th.

Barkov got 8.1% which would be about 6.5 mil

Around 7% which is about 6 mil are guys like Trochek, Zibenejad (before he broke out), Schmaltz, etc

1) Again, that is all before Covid hit and what the NHL is now saying there will be a flat cap for the foreseeable future in your comparisons.
2) Schmaltz is also pretty overpaid.
3) Barkov is world's better on a worse team then Cirelli even in his 3rd season

This is perfectly fair imo.


People forget that players really want to play and be in Tampa,and an extra 500k or so from an offersheet isn't enough to sway them away

now thats a contract

But now even with Kucherov on LTIR they are 1.45mill over the cap. So Johnsson will probs be moved and its gonna cost them.
