Got to keep BWP under contract so we can get something in return when we inevitably trade him within the next 18 months.

Hope it's a contract till Dec 2018. Anything longer than that and I'm not sure if it's a good deal.

Congrats to BWP.

 

His goals speak for themselves, and he seems a super-nice guy as well. We were all pretty skeptical of him when he came over, and you can't argue with the results. Playoffs aside, he's been pretty money.

 

We do need more out of him in October/November, tho.

Gonna be 33 next season.  Hoping his regression doesn't happen for a while...

Now Sacha is next (or at least he is supposed to be) in line for an extension

I find it remarkable how he went from a joke to an all-time great for this franchise (although lets be honest, before the past couple of years, we've been such a wretched franchise).

This makes sense - we'll offload Veron this summer and then use his DP slot on someone else.

I hope this is the case.  Is there actually any chance this happens in the summer though?

congrats BWP

Statistically speaking, yes - most of our big signings have all come in the summer.

That part I completely agree with.

 

It's the part of dumping Veron in the summer.

I don't think Gulbrandsen is going to lose his starting job and we can't afford to wait any longer on Veron to perform. It's over. He will leave this summer. Betcha a beer. 

 

FTFY

 

It's possible, but I don't think it's true. I don't think it was even true with Dax. Dax's pay went to Gulbrandsen and potentially this CB we're going to sign. Once the player salaries are released, we can see where the money was used. 

 

I think this summer we either sign a noteworthy DP or we work out something where we make Gulbrandsen's loan permanent and use the slot on him.

I'd love to know the number of years on that contract. At some point he's going to regress and I sincerely hope it's not in the final year (or two, possibly) of his contract otherwise it's going to look brutal.
