The Oilers announced that they came to terms with RNH today on a 7 year 42M dollar deal.
GM Craig MacTavish used the same contract structure as had been previously used for Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle and RNH signed at the bottom line. The Oilers and their fans should be rejoicing right now. Next year the Cap is going up and inflation can be brutal. Especially considering Number 1 centers dont grow on trees.
This young man has every chance to be the best Oiler of the bunch, and thats saying a lot. His vision is other worldly, his instincts are flawless, and his hockey IQ is off the charts. Oh, and he will be an Oiler for for 8 more years (counting this one coming up). Its a great day to be an Oiler fan.
