While it probably won’t have the same impact as Ryan Callahan‘s whopper of an extension, the Tampa Bay Lightning continued a busy Wednesday of re-signings by locking up J.T. Brown to a two-year deal worth $1.9 million.
Brown’s offensive production is modest (four goals, 19 points in 63 games), but he’s a player who produces nice possession stats. He’s also just 23, so it’s more than reasonable to believe that he can improve on his scoring stats in the two years of this contract.
Some might quibble with his -9 rating in the regular season and -3 mark from the postseason, yet others rave about the value of this deal.
