Canes, Brandon Sutter agree to terms

After weeks of hearing “the deal could be finalized as soon as today”, the deal has finally been finalized.  According to reliable sources, the Hurricanes and Brandon Sutter have agreed to a contract renewal.  No details yet.  A safe assumption is that the deal is for no more than three years.  That was the thing that Sutter’s camp was demanding.  I’ve been postulating all summer long that the deal would be for just north of $3M per season.  I’ve heard a lot of arguments that he should be paid considerably less than that, but I’m sticking to it. 

Whenever the details become available, I’ll share them. 

With that, the Canes should be done for the summer.
