Sutton re-signs with Oilers… 1-year deal worth $1.5M + $250k

By , February 13, 2012 8:36 am

Andy Sutton has re-signed with the Edmonton Oilers. The deal is worth $1.5M in salary, but also comes with $250K in bonuses which will be earned based on games played and the Oilers making the playoffs. I think this is a good depth signing for the team. It’s structured perfectly, giving incentive to Sutton to play more games, and also not being a very big cap hit at all (less than his current cap hit). Sutton has been a reliable player for the Oilers this year, so it makes me happy to see him back for another year.

With this signing, however, you have to wonder if one of our d-men may be moved at the deadline. The most likely candidate that we’d try to move is Cam Barker. He hasn’t really fit in too well here. He’s showed very small flashes of why he was drafted 3rd overall, but those have been brief. It is also possible that the Oilers could move a guy like Theo Peckham to open the door a bit more for some off-season signing or trade for a big-name defenseman (something the Oilers really need).

Working on an extension with the Oilers..

From the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch, via Twitter:

The Oilers and D Andy Sutton are discussing a one-year extension. He’s not sure he wants to be a UFA and likes Edmonton. #Oilers

I have to say I’m pretty excited about that. Despite the mystifying coaching decision to pull him out of the Oilers line up, Andy Sutton has been one of this year’s few bright spots. At his age too, a one-year deal is all that makes sense for us. For a team that has a bit of a history of giving aging players too lengthy of a contract, I’m happy to hear that a one-year deal is being worked on. Get it done, and for god sakes, don’t pull him out of the lineup anymore, Renney.

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN reports that Brendan Shanahan has suspended Edmonton Oilers defenseman Andy Sutton “indefinitely” for his hit on Carolina Hurricanes forward Alex Ponikarovsky (video here). Shanahan has offered Sutton an in-person hearing, which means the league can suspend him 6-plus games should they choose to.

This is (potentially) Andy Sutton’s second suspension of the season, which won’t help his cause too much. We will soon find out if Brendan Shanahan is an expert, or not.

How long should Andy Sutton be suspended, for hitting Alex Ponikarovsky?

And on the 1st day, he created the heavens, then called it an off-season…

OK, really, today wasn’t THAT good. It was good though, and I was surprised how much the Edmonton Oilers got done in a single day. This is the same crew of people that snailed their way through last off-season and did much to improve the farm team, but very little to improve the big club with Colin Fraser, Jim Vandermeer and Kurtis Foster being the “big” additions.

So, let’s summarize: Continue reading 'And on the 1st day, he created the heavens, then called it an off-season…'»
