Too rich for the Wings; still have to sign Bertuzzi and Mantha.

That term is the killer for me.  Id have felt comfortable at 5 max. About the aav youd expect I imagine.  If we have any gems Id hate to lose them down the road on account of that term though.

Even if we called it and stood pat until opening day (goalie aside of course, cause, yeah) im happy with oir offseason.  Addition by subtraction.  New opportunities and motivations.  Im happy.

Disappointed.

But agree term was at least 1 (but probably 2) years too long.

AAV isn’t an issue. Plenty of money to sign lil Bert and Mantha.
