And the NMC for the first year is a respect thing I think, since Kuba himself has stated he's sick of moving, so Murray gives him the respect and comfort of knowing he'll be ottawa-bound for another 364 days; after that, who knows?..
I personally wish he would raise his physical game (or START one for that matter) and try to stop over-thinking and hesitating and just go with his gut and/or the flow of the game. If he can accomplish that, I assure you, we will be happy with him.
Seems like we are basing next year on a lot of Ifs, but hell, if you are not the Detroit Red Wings, you are doing the same damn thing lol, it's just as Ottawa fans, we are overcritical when something doesn't make sense. I said yesterday I didn't like the Kuba deal, but a year from now, I may be flip flopped on my opinion of the deal, the physicality of his game does have to improve, so get him to learn a bit of A-Train's mean streak.
