Jason Demers Heading To Florida

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

Jason Demers has reached agreement on a $22.5-million, five-year contract with the Florida Panthers, Sportsnet has learned.

The right-shooting defenceman was a highly coveted commodity on the free-agent market and garnered multiple offers when the signing period opened Friday. Florida is believed to have entered the process somewhat late after the first wave of deals passed without him agreeing to one.

Panthers wanted to resign Campbell but his wife wanted to go home to Chicago. Jason Demer adds to a new look defense. With Campbell, Gudbranson, Kulikov gone and Yandle, Demer and Pysyk replacing them. They should fit in nicely with Ekblad, Petrovic and Matheson. Panthers are looking good but the most important player is still not signed. They need to get Vincent Trocheck locked in long term.

Right handed Dman for that much $ is a win.

What’s there to be pissed about? Not the top pair dman that’s needed. If XO or Sproul are gonna get a shot, this would not help with that.

If you’re waiting for Sproul and Oulett to turn into decent NHL defensemen you might be waiting a long, long time. I feel very fortunate to be able to see most of the Griffins home games but it gives me a glimps into the Wings future. The Wings defensive future looks pretty feckin bleak.
