Joni Pitkanen agrees with the Oil.
According to TSN, Joni Pitkanen has agreed to a 1 year deal worth
$2.4 million. I was expecting a longer term for the contract, but signed pretty cheap and only received a $400,000 raise from last year.
Personally, I think that is price is quite reasonable, especially considering the Oilers really needed an offensive defenseman. But trading Lupul and Jason Smith for someone who could potentially walk away next year could potentially come back to bite them in the A$$.
