That’s seems like an okay deal, I’m don’t exactly know how good he is or how he plays but he seems to be an okay shutdown guy

Relatively cheap contract for a player who's probably the best of his position in his team.

This looks pretty fair. Locks him down for a few years while they continue to rebuild. And very tradeable if need be down the line, although I think he can be a long term piece.

Not sure about that. Imo he's overrated af.

He scores well for a D, but then again he has more PP points than Tyson f*cking Barrie who completely lives of as a PP expert D.

Wonderful signing for both player and team. Glad to have him aboard for the next three years -- they'll definitely protect him in the expansion draft now.

Pre pandemic, this is what I thought he would get.
Now, I think they should have got maybe 1 more year on the deal.

Hes a good stay at home D.

Reminds me of the Ryan Graves contract. Good for him and good for the organization.

This is Los Angeles California, not a state like Florida or Texas. If that was the case than Roy's contract will be similar to Erik Cernak

He's likely unprotected. Whether or not Seattle decides to take him is another question entirely.

There's are some forward options. Guys like Wagner, Lizotte, and/or Lias Andersson will be left exposed.

In your mind which assets will be protected? I assume they are going 7-3-1. I myself was under the impression that players like Lizotte and Andersson are going to be protected.

I suspected they would go 4-4-1 at the beginning of the year. According to John Hoven, they're leaning towards 7-3-1.

Kings will protect Kopitar, Iafallo, and Kempe for sure. Grundstrom, Moore, and Athanasiou are likely potected with their play so far this season. The last protection slot will go to one of Lizotte, Andersson, or Wagner.

On defense, the Kings will protect Doughty, Walker, and Roy. Notable exposures on defense are Clague and Strand.

Why protect Iafallo? He's a pending UFA and probable trade target.

I personally wouldn't protect pending UFAs. Seattle's unlikely to take such assets, as they have zero leverage over them.

LOL, that's not even close to the truth. Barrie is one of the best offensive defenseman at 5v5 too.

Well yeah that was more the case in the past, exclusively last year. Barrie has upgraded great from last year.

Regardless, not really the point of the example, but whatever floats your boat. I won't deny that Barrie fits in an environment like Edmonton very, very well.

It was 100% your point, you're trying to deflect because you made a stupid comparison and I called you on it. Even before this year Barrie was a premier offensive defenseman in the NHL.

From 2017-18 to 2019-20 (3 seasons) at 5v5:

1. Carlson: 100
2. Josi: 99
3. Burns: 95
4. Karlsson: 83
5. Rielly: 83
6. Barrie: 78
7. Hedman: 77
8. Nurse: 77

Even last year in Toronto he was a top point producer at 5v5, finishing tied for 12th in the league with Pietrangelo, Karlsson and Chabot.
