Update 12:00pm PT: Still awaiting terms, but there is this note from Nick Kypreos: “Heard at the draft the cap hit for Bieksa in Van would be around 4.7M on a long term deal but not confirmed right now.”

Update 12:25pm PT From Farhan Lalji of TSN—

Bieksa’s deal is 5 years, 4.6 million per. With a no trade clause.

Will Shea Weber and NSH come to similar terms?

Hmmm…...

Why on earth would Weber settle for Bieska money? 

Bieska was a guy many canucks fans wanted traded at the start of the season who turned into a monster at the right time, but that’s less than a season worth compared to Weber who has pretty much been a stud for five years now.

I think he’ll get Duncan Keith money at the very least.

a little more than what i expected, this makes it hard to resign ehrhoff if bieksa gets this kinda money, then ehrhoff will be looking for 6 or more.
look at weber inking at least 6.5, but most likely around 7 unless its a life contract
