Thje Stars announced the signing via their Twitter.
The Dallas Stars have agreed to terms on a 2-year contract with defenseman Nicklas Grossman for $3.25 million.
How great is this? I mean, we all knew he’d be back, but this news kind of came out of nowhere. I guess I just assumed that with the length of time James Neal’s camp has been taking, Grossman’s would be that way as well.
On a more “serious” note, I think we signed Nick for a good price. He’s a good, solid defenseman who will only get better. He’s a massive presence and wears Derian Hatcher’s number well ( though not as ferociously). It’s a very cap-friendly hit for such a troubled cap.
I’m very excited for Grossman to be back, and hopefully he’s spent the summer getting meaner. I don’t think that this signing will mean anymore wins or anything, but it will guarantee that one of our favorite Swedes will be back.
Speaking of defensemen, I need to remind everyone that Jeff Woywitka exists. I often forget about that waste of (cap) space, and I just wanted to send out a friendly reminder that he’s still a Star…much to our dismay.
Just keep that in mind.
