MESZAROS SIGNS CONTRACT

A Day After Acquiring RFA D-Man Andrej Meszaros From The Ottawa Senators, The Tampa Bay Lightning Have Signed The Defenceman To A New 6-year Contract.

No Terms Were Released I Would Think It To Be Between 4 and 4.5 million on Average.

Per Lightning Website.

EDIT:"Here is the breakdown:
$2.5-million next season
$3.25-million in 2009-10
$4-million in 2010-11 and 2011-12
$4.75-million in 20012-13
$5.5-million in 2013-14."

It does not say that. On TSN they have 5 million was gonna be the offer sheet offer.

even 4 in my opinion is too much. i'd give him 3 to 3.5 tops. he made less than $1 million last season and he demands $5 mill from ottawa right out of the gate...not right

okay after the breakdown the deal doesn't really seem as ridiculous. his first year of the contract set at $2.5 million is a great deal for the lightning. hopefully meszaros improves his game year by year and proves that he is worth more and more money down the road as his career progreses.

it may only be a "salary" of $2.5, but it's a cap hit of $4M......

still too much to devote to an extremely overrated player......
