Grabovski was signed to a 4 year deal worth 20 million dollars. Last year in 58 games for the Capitals Grabovski had 35 points including 13 goals.
Meanwhile, Kulemin was signed to a 4 year deal worth 16.75 million dollars. Last season, in 70 games for the Leafs Kulemin had 20 points.
You can easily criticize them for these contracts specifically the Kulemin one. However, I am just happy they are showing they have a pulse and a desire to continue to improve the team after the statements last night to the contrary. With the roster the way it is now I wonder what moves will be made because the roster seems pretty full now.
#Isles have signed F Nikolai Kulemin and C Mikhail Grabovski to 4-year contracts.
