Rinne signs, 7 mill per, 7 years.

Postby Drury_Sakic » Thu Nov 03, 2011 3:26 pm

Amazingly big contract for a goal that has not proven much IMO.

He might be worth it though, and the signing may be what is needed to convince Suter and Weber to stick around. The Preds have more than enough cap space to sign both of them, but they would have to go over their internal spending limit to do so and ice a roster that is worth a darn. Conventional wisdom is that one of Suter and Weber will have to go based on this signing though.

Well, from what I understand the Preds do not have a shortage of highly talented Defense men on the farm so they may be willing to let one of those two walk and hope they can get a good replacement at a entry contact price tag. While I'd love to see the Avs jump on one of these guys in FA I just don't see where/how they would fit.
