I would’ve preferred a longer deal, but at least it’s done and at a great price.

Good AAV, but he will demand more next season. I don't like the term

They just kicked the can down the road, now they have to find space to sign jP and yamo, with no cap space and need a starting goalie

Good value this year but this could blow up in their face

Shades of the Kevin Labanc deal right here. Perhaps even if Yamamoto falters, they'll throw him a lifeline at the end?

This is a major underpayment. If I were Yamamoto I would be demanding a payment out of Holland for the sacrifice I made this year.

Cannot believe they got him for so little, granted he will be owed a ton of money if he has a good season

Labanc type of deal. Im scared he will provide Labanc's type of season.

GMs are such pussies. You really couldn't have tried to OS him at like 4.25x3

I think whoever of JP or Yamo appears the least important at RW is the best ticket to getting a good goalie with picks going along with them this summer. Hyman or Foegele can go RW if needed, and Holloway/Benson/Lavoie are not far from sliding into the middle 6. I'm not too concerned with them both being on cheap show me seasons, and having more deadline space for this season.

Kevin Labanc signed for less on a one-year deal. I don't see why everyone thinks this is so great for EDM. If he breaks out, he'll cost 4x as much next summer!

Not sure how this is such an underpayment for an 8G season.

Great deal of Edmonton. I don't like the term, but he's still a RFA, so it's all good.

he had all the cap space in the world going into the offseason, how in the world did he botch it so bad that it might come down to them having to pick JP or Yamo of the guy to keep long term

A GM who is in the HHOF and has 3 cups doesn't suck, I'm shocked.

This is just ridiculous. I mean at least it’s only one year for Kailer’s sake, but Holland definitely took advantage of him wanting to join his teammates in training camp.

Arbitration eligible on next deal
Puljujarvi needs a new deal next year too.

They needed to get more than 1 year here.
