Winnipeg Jets – Update – July 5
The Winnipeg Jets re-signed their captain today. Andrew Ladd signed a 5 year, 22 million dollar contract to stay put. Good on Andrew, but a little pricey based on what he has done so far. It could turn out to be a great move though if he continues to develop. The team really needed to sign him on so many levels. One big knock on Winnipeg was that no one wanted to play there, let alone stay. This signing represents that the opposite may in fact be the truth.
My other team made a few moves today as well. The Boston Bruins have had some addition and subtraction happenings over the past few days. Tomas Kaberle has left, signing a deal with the Carolina Hurricanes. This was expected and not entirely a bad thing for the team. To partially compensate they have signed Joe Corvo in a trade with Carolina. Michael Ryder has also left, signing a deal with the Dallas Stars.
