Nice, I was hoping they would get something like this done pretty soon.

Nice. He's earned it with his play this season.

Good for him. He deserves it after a horrible Babs induced season last year.

Now sign Mikheyev to something similar.

Might be a really good time to dangle a contract in front of him, insurance money!!

Definitely doesn't feel like an overpay based on his performance and really could be a steal if he continues to develop.

Always nice to see a hardworking minor leaguer get a deal that will set himself up financially.

This contract feels... about right. If he continues playing like he is right now by the end of the year this will feel like more of a steal. If he falters a little through the year and needs to revert back to the 3rd pairing it'll probably feel a tad high. But I'm good with the risk, and I'd imagine Dubas/Keefe are too. Feels important to note that Holl was a pending UFA, not RFA. That's something maybe not everyone would have guessed.

What's interesting is what this will mean for Dermott's next deal. Holl has sort of passed him on the depth chart this season. That's partially because Dermott has Rielly/Muzzin in front of him and Holl only has Barrie/Ceci, but still. Holl's averaging about 2 minutes more per game than Dermott, with most of that difference coming from PK minutes. If you look at it post-Babcock Holl's over 3 minutes above Dermott in ice-time. And while that's still partially because of Holl's PK usage the 5-on-5 gap is widening too.

I like the deal given Holl's age. He's turning 28 in January so its not unreasonable to think he can still perform at this level for 3 more years, he's really taken a step in his career.

This sets up future pairings of

Rielly-
Dermott-Holl
Sandin-Lijegren

for the next couple of seasons at least.  Budget middle and bottom pairing guys and it remains to be seen who can be affordable for a Rielly pairing

Good deal. There's a tiny bit of jeff fingerish risk to it, but at least he's performed well in the uniform.

Dubas's best-value signing, and they need those on D.

He's been better than Dermott this year IMO.  By a fair bit.

I don't like it. 

$1-$1.2 X 2 was about what I was comfortable with, because I think he's a 3rd pairing guy when they get someone to properly play those minutes.

I think $2m for a 3rd pairing d-man is too much.
