During tonights game vs the Flyers, it was first reported by Bob McKenzie that we had signed center Frans Nielsen to a 4 year extension worth 11 million dollars.
It was first reported a few weeks ago by a Danish website that we were close to an extension with the Danish center. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that we agreed with him.
To be honest, the money was a little more then I thought it would be. The years were right in line, but I thought the money would be two million tops. Although I am not complaining, I am very happy we retained him and didn't just dump him for a pick.
