Monahan signs 7-year extension, Gaudreau still unsigned

22 Aug

Sorry, I’ve been on holidays. And frankly maintaining a hockey website in August doesn’t really appeal to me.

However I did want to comment on Mony’s contract, a seven-year contract extension worth a reported $44.6 million US on Friday morning.

Monahan has actually topped all players from his 2013 draft class in goals (80) and points (159), outpacing No. 1 overall pick Nathan Mackinnon (59 goals and 153 points) as well as Aleksander Barkov (52, 119), the Florida Panthers’ young star.

“When you look at his production, when you look at what Sean’s done over the three years, he’s been at the high-end of that level,” Treliving said.

I though the deal was fair for both sides. I liked the term but I didn’t like the amount, so I guess it balances out. You have to pay more for a first-line centre than you would most other positions so if this the deal that kept Sean here, then that’s the deal I’m happy with.
