I think he’s a little bit overpaid. But on the other hand I guess Ottawa fans are happy with his signing. OTT wins term, Brady wins AAV, fans WIN

Good deal, Tkachuk is a good 1st liner but he's probably not in Ottawa for much longer because Melnyk is cheap af

AAV it’s to much, but I mean it’s a solid signing, but this is going to really wager how much Matthew gets.

We absolutely needed term on Brady's extension and this is worth the sacrifice.

His cap hit is higher than Chabot's but we need to hit the floor next year anyway.



Say hello to Ottawa's next captain.

I voted yes smile

Considering what Kaprizov got, this one is relatively fair.

Still voted no though because it's not entirely fair, but he may live up to it.

Fair contract to lock him down, at least the RFAs are finally all signed

AAV is HIGH but I'm glad for OTT they have him locked up long term.

Man they really give 8mill aav to just anybody nowadays huh?

Don't get me wrong Ottawa has to pay someone but 8x7 for a 50-60 point pace? Yikes

Any other team this deal is terrible but since its Ottawa they get a pass

Probably 1m too high, but at least they got him long term. His contract end at the same time as Chabot too.

I wanted $7MM, but $8MM wasn't a deal breaker. I'm not quibbling over $200K, good signing

Ottawa's heart and soul, star player, and he's still only 22. If another team signed him to 8.2x5 with an offersheet, this wouldn't even be a question.

His closest comparable is Svechnikov who signed for slightly less and received another year.

Will be fine.

a "little" high?
Back to back years of low 20 goals and mid 40 points.
Even last year 25 goal and 53 point average.

HTF does that get you over 8 million per?
This shouldn't have been over 6.

It's an overpay now, but I sense this turning into fair value down the road.

It’s finally over.

Overpaid but the circumstances make it necessary for Ottawa to keep their heartbeat. He could grow into the AAV but he needs to step up.
