Jeff Cowan's Lingerie Powers Signed For 2 Years

From TSN:
The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Jeff Cowan to a two-year contract extension, the NHL team announced Thursday. Cowan, 30, played 42 for the Canucks last season after being claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings. He had seven goals, three assists and 93 penalty minutes with Vancouver.
We'll see what the terms were. I wonder if the negotiations between Dave Nonis and Jeff Cowan (mentioned the other day) followed my script:
JC: Not too complicated, man. I want 2 years, $600K per. And a little respect. DN: We respect you, we really respect you, Jeff. But you know the kind of deals we need to get done. Hell, there’s even idiots out there speculating that we’re trading Willie Mitchell, we’re so tight on cash! JC: I am the Brabarian. Women strip off their lingerie at your hockey games and throw it on the ice because of me. And thus, as long as I’m here, Mitchell will never leave and no seat will ever be empty. DN:..... DN:..... DN: Fine. Done. Sign here.
I knew it would work! :)Updated 2:06pm PST: About $700,000 per year... 'According to CKNW in Vancouver, the deal is for a shade more than $1.4 million in total."
