According to Aaron Portzline's Twitter, Rick Nash has signed an 8 year 62.4 million dollar deal with a cap hit of 7.8 million a year.
That's about as good as we could expect from a cap perspective. Hopefully it is frontloaded beyond all hell.
Hopefully CBJ nation will be able to take a deep breath. It is a big sigh of relief for many, but remember: stay patient. Nash said what he said to get a deal done quickly. It worked. He is our captain for the next 9 season.
