Best draft day news in a long time. This is a wonderful deal specially with the length of the deal.

It also makes Philly look pretty dumb for how much they paid/gave up for Hartnell

Smart move by Martin; locking up his potential franchise forward at a reasonable price. It's a huge pay increase for Nathan too, but it really could benefit the club long-term if his production continues to increase. At 4 mil per season, he's already put up better numbers than Hartnell, who got 4.5 mil per. Awesome move! Now we have Jokinen, Van Ryn, Salei, Allen and Horton signed long-term!
