well this should take him to retirement for sure.  weird that they extend him with one year left but never tried to extend dupuis last summer with one year left or even throughout the season.  shero makes some really good trades, but his signings are questionable.  for example, he waits until Neal has a breakout year to sign him to a 5 year 5 million dollar deal.  the deal is great, but you have to wonder what it could have been if he signed him up in the summer after he was traded to the pens.

True, but at the same time do you want to extend a guy for five years after he’s only played part of one season?  Eight points in 27 games isn’t a significant sample size.
