Good signing for the Jackets. Huselius is a very good offensive talent and should excel away from the pressure cooker in Calgary. With his speed and good hands, he will fit in nicely on the wing and is more than a suitable replacement for the recently-departed Nikolai Zherdev. At $4.75 million per season, both sides have to be happy with the deal they have reached.
