A bit of a correction from Brayden Point’s agent on salary breakdown of the Point deal from Ken Campbell. So, which is it?

Thoughts from the media



John Matisz: “Julien BriseBois learned a thing or two from Steve Yzerman. Bargain.”

Dobber: “I can’t believe there was a delay on signing Brayden Point when it was that number. Point just got 92 points, if his ask was anywhere close to $6.75 AAV at three years, GM BriseBois should have been tripping over himself in his rush to get it done..”

Todd Cordell: “lmao the Lightning are so good at this.”

David Pagnotta: “Solid deal for both sides… Keep in mind, Tampa’s one of the no-state-income-tax teams”

Joe Smith (background on Point bridge deal)“An ICYMI with context on why that term is M.O. by TB and why it has taken so long”.

Cam Robinson: “Tidy piece of business in Tampa. Colour me shocked”.

Brennan Klak: “The important part for Brayden Point’s camp is getting that 3rd year at 9M so that the qualifying offer is nice when his contract expires. Otherwise, Julien BriseBois getting him signed at under 7M a year is absolutely bonkers. That’s a fantastic bridge. #TBLightning

Sean Tierney: “You love to see it”.
