Great signing; movable when Miller and Lundkvist are ready to go...
This is the type of player that should get short term. Very smart giving him only 2 years. AAV is a bit high for the nature of the league right now, but it beats giving him term. Something tells me he will fall off of a cliff. Ghost and Gustafsson vibes from this guy.
This is a lot of money for a 2-year deal, no?
Regardless of how much term he got hed be gone in 2021 when nils comes over
I don't hate it because it's short-term and not as high of a cap hit as I had thought it would be, but man, I REALLY hope they don't re-sign him after this contract. Hopefully Nils Lundkvist proves himself before then!
Trouba got much less power play time in New York then in WPG for the record but your point still stands
Looking forward to see Johnson-DeAngelo stuck in d-zone
He's a good player but a total pos so I can't vote yes.
As soon as he comes over (2021) deangelo is being traded
I highly doubt he completes this contract in NY. And if he does they can pull a Hayes, resign him to his 1 year QO and deal him as a premiere rental...
I'm looking forward to that haha. Can't stand DeAngelo.
I mean can you blame the voters? Guys like this aren't exactly helping hockey's image.
I suppose not but it’s not like the guys an extremist. Yes he’s an asshole and very open about his unpopular political views but he’s also a good hockey player and the lockeroom seems to love him. In fact I’d say he’s shown quite a bit of growth form his Sarnia days. It’s fine to have your opinion on him but I just thing it’s useless and unproductive to judge a singing based on a guys off ice life instead of cap and roster ramifications. That’s just me though.....
Guys WHY does everyone seem to hate this guy?
This is a hockey site not a politics site so I don’t see why a guys personal image has anything to do with his contract. Also being a complete idiot off the ice doesn’t make him one on the ice
I know nothing about him and I assume he isn't great defensively.
But even on a PERSONAL level people seem to hate him? Why?
