Wonder what this means for Edmonton and Nurse.

They have just under $4M, and his agent made a comment about it not being long term if they only have $5M... This signing might lower his bridge contract in fact then.

Montour signed a similar 2 year bridge earlier this summer for $3.38M.

Except Morrisey is about the fourth best defence man on the Jets and Nurse is number two or maybe three, and supposed to be knocking on the top pairing door this year. He’s going to demand a bigger chunk of the cap.

That logic is like when shawn horcoff thought he should be paid like henrik sedin just because he was a '1st line center' like him

Regardless of what they are to their team, morrisey is better right now

The only reason nurse could get more here is if he goes long term and Oilers are banking on his potential

The Oilers are desperate though. They need Nurse in the lineup more than the Jets needed Morrissey.



I think Nurse is inferior, but I think he gets paid more because of the circumstances. Plus, the Oilers GM sucks at RFAing.

I didn't realize people's opinion of Morrissey was so low. IMO he is better than Trouba

He was. The general consensus for Jets fans was he was our best D man last season.
