Good signing. I would have thought the full 8 years, but still good.

If Leafs haters on this site have taught me anything, its that Makar is obviously trying to get out of Colorado because he didn't go max term.

On a more serious note, yeah Makar is worth that already. Not much else to say other than he IS that good.

He'll be making less than Jones? This is a good deal, even though it takes him straight to UFA.

This is pretty much what he's worth as an RFA, it's just that the disgusting Seth Jones contract makes this one look 100x better

In 6 years, he'll likely still be in his prime as an elite #1 defenceman.

I voted yes smile

This off-season has zero consistency. Ovechkin will sign in Detroit for 3 mil. Landeskog will sign in Chicago for 15 mil.

Seriously good signing for Colorado.

This is a great deal for a future Norris winning defenseman. Sakic making it happen again.

6 years vs 8 probably skews the deal in favor of the player slightly, but it's still a good deal for the team. I wouldn't go so far as to cal 9mil a steal, but it's definitely solid value for a guy who will probably be at the absolute worst the 4th or 5th best Dman in the league throughout that entire contract. Realistically he will be 1, 2 or 3 almost every season.

He hasn't won a Norris. Josi last year and fox this year

Finalist though.

Also I suspect he left a little money on the table to shorten it to 6 years so he could get another contract in his 20s
