Weeeeeell below the $6M rumored price.

If true, I am quiiiiiite happy.

Absolutely LOVE Coleman as a player.

Was hoping for 5x5 but that should do. He's a legitimately great two-way player who will significantly help the Flames

That is a very large oof... I'm not sure about the AAV, but I'm more worried about the term on that one.

Jimmy Hayes has been wrong before.

Too long and a shade too much but under 5 is not a horrifying overpay. Just a bad one. Monkey paw wish fulfilled I hope.

So for those of us wanting the team to do something different, they're just doing the same thing they always have.

4.9 is a number i can live with!

Quite a bit better than Hyman's rumored contract for a similarly productive player with winning pedigree.

In a day where guys are massively overpaid, this is on the reasonable end.

Blake Coleman is one of the most effective two-way wingers in the league who would make any team better.

Now he's a UFA, and the bidding war is on.

My dive into his game, what he brings to the table, and where he might fit.

Edit: Nvm. Paywalled.

Hayes has been known to troll around before, but since these guys are friends who knows maybe he does know something

One year and a half million more AAV than I'd hoped. Oh well.

Welcome aboard Coleman
