Great signing by Devils....and great for Hughes too.
I have found there are two types of Hughes detractors out there:
(1) people that never watch him play, just look at point totals, and conclude he is a bust
(2) people who view him as hockey's version of Justin Bieber.
For people that have watched him play, this contract is a good one.
He has dominated many stat categories (possession, passing, zone entries, takeaways, penalties drawn, etc).
That usually leads to bigger point numbers.
Also, he arrived in NJ at 5'10" maybe 145-150 lbs.
He is now 5'11" has added 15 lbs in each off-season, and if that continues, he will be 5'11" 190 lbs by the start of this contract.
