This makes Nurse and Jones contracts look 10 times worse.

Really good deal and sets the tone well for the 2 remaining big UFA's

Expect Rielly and Klingberg to sign 6.5mill x 8yrs next


LOL, rag on me for connecting the dots to the thread to the Leafs and than uses his next comment to mention the Leafs.

Pulock could have got more easily.
Should fire his agent for settling for less.


LOL maybe if he was greedy but clearly he isn't. Hockey isn't about making money dude

Didnt really mention Toronto at all just said expect Rielly and Klingberg to sign for 6.5mill x 8 years as those 2 are the last big Dman free agents for next season. Never said it would be with their respected teams.

There could be a post about Lebron James and someone would find a way to make it about Pierre Engvall lol

This must be what it's like to live in Canada.


For the record most of us from Toronto (or the Toronto burbs) find it annoying too. This is about a great deal about pulock. Doesn't have anything to do with the leafs.

Sorry should have specified that playing hockey is not about making money. The business side of it obviously is but the players should just be thankful they are blessed to play the best game on the planet in the best league on the planet

Regardless of whether Pulock himself is worth this contract (which he is just making a point to those who say no), this contract isn't just about Pulock. This guarantees the Pulock/Pelech combo for 8 years. THAT is worth every penny of this contract plus a couple mil to each of them.

I hate this "agent must be fired" talk. It's nonsense. If every single player on the Isles roster is taking slightly less to build the deepest possible team, then no one's actually getting "shafted" here.

Pelech is amazing, Pulock is really good. I don't think he's a #1D as some claim here. The NYI system does a lot to help defensive play. I'd rather have Ekholm at 4x6.25 than Pulock at 8x6.15.

A lot easier to imagine the Isles pursuing an actual LD2 next year now. Wow, the Pelech-Pulock defensive pair, one of the leagues best, both on absolute bargain contracts. Good time to be an Isles fan.

Pelech and Pulock combined are making 400K more than Karlsson


Haha funniest post I've seen in a while. Yet the Islanders are getting more value or bang for there buck.

Thanks for the chuckle this morning at work.

Steal. one of the best dmen in the league.

On a post that has NOTHING to do with Toronto, people on here find a way to make it about the Leafs.


There's a subsection of Toronto fans who wish Lou never left Toronto and need to bring it up all the time.

Great argument… The real question is why you’d bring up his agent needing be fired when maybe this is the deal Pulock wanted to sign. Perhaps he was completely comfortable signing at a discount because he’s a good guy and the money is of little concern to him. I always respect players who sign at a discount, shows they care much more about hockey than money.
