Dan Rosen: “Big contract for Nick Suzuki, an up and coming talent no doubt. This deal could wind up as a bargain for the Habs on the back half of it.”

Thomas Drance: Two ideas on the Suzuki extension.

“A) This is why you go long. Deal will be an outright take on the back-end.

B) Never waste an unsustainably fortunate season or playoff go to secure a young gamer while they believe the great times are here to remain.”
