I would’ve paid 8.35 MAX for him. He’s a great offensive defenseman and all, but he’s cost the Oilers goals in the past. Yikes.

This is going to be (along with many contracts from this offseason) - one of the many anchors..

Nurse was great this year but… man this could be the new 2016 class of dead weights. I will defend Nurse all I can because many people don’t appreciate how good he was last year and this year but… yikes

Shot 3 times his normal sh%, played mostly with McDrai and his xGF% TANKED playing with anyone else, and his defensive partner (bear) who allowed him to play offensively is gone and now the teams only defensive dman is Kris Russell




What could go wrong?



I get it, you have to win now while McDrai are in their primes. However IMO this and the hyman contract and sealing their plane tickets out of Edmonton in 4 years.

There is no way Ken Holland saw what Pelech signed for today and thought this was a good idea

2021 will be remembered as the year of insane deals being handed out to Defensemen. I can see us looking back in 5 years similar as to 2016…

And Ken Holland’s masterclass offseason continues!

It’s not that Nurse isn’t good… he just isn’t worth more Victor Hedman, Dougie Hamilton, etc…

And then there’s Adam Pelech…

Darnell Nurse is a great player. He's a big Dman capable of driving offense from the blueline at an incredibly high level. Having said that, this contract is terrible. Probably not AS bad as the Seth Jones deal, so that's a small W.

With a potential flat-cap for the next several years these big contracts are going to hurt.

But Seth Jones has won several Norris Tro...oh.
