Pretty low risk contract...

If he does well you can keep him. If he doesn't, it's a one year deal. I like it for Florida. He could help in the playoffs. He did have a 40 point season.

Low risk, high reward contract. I like it for both parties.

Why would he sign with Tampa? He would never get a shot at the top 6

Good pick up for any contender - Florida gains a good gamble as well as not allowing anyone else to take a run at rebounding Gusev. He’s got a chance to fit nicely in FLA top 6 if he performs.

A certain old friend and teammate named Nikita Kucherov would vouch for him and they would put him there.

come playoff time

He's been trash and will likely end up on the taxi squad, but Florida has tons of cap so it doesn't matter

I still argue that he is underrated. Very good forward imo.

Edit: Let me be clear by very good I mean Top 9 good haha

Contract was mutually terminated which typically indicates that the player and management were equally unhappy with the performance

Coach Lindy has been an epic disaster for the Devils. Gusev's failure is on him.
