Michal Handzus signs two year deal worth $2.5 MM per year

[Update]: Story posted here. Story to come on the front page later. Immediate takeaways: *Third line center, almost certainly puts Pavelski into the top six. *At the age of 34, Handzus' skating ability won't be getting any better. * Would have preferred Belanger at 3 years for $1.75 MM but no telling what those negotiations were like. Hard to sit here and criticize from the couch. *Some decent hands and has averaged about 15 goals over the last three years. *Sharks needed a PK forward and they most certainly got him. Huge minutes on the Kings shorthanded unit, his bread and butter. *Contract is more than manageable, especially considering term. *With Mitchell on the third line as well right now it's looking like San Jose will have a defensive checking line that could roll out against opposing team's second lines on a nightly basis.
