Hope you didn’t plan on getting a lot of work done today. After the Olympic announcements, the Jets announced they had signed centre Bryan Little to a five year contract, avoiding arbitration.

Comments from the Teleconference:
– A bit different than the last time I signed a contract
– I was confident it would get done before it went to arbitration.
– I wanted to stay in Wpg. I’ve been part of that organization since I was drafted. I think this organizations best days are ahead
– Ladd and Wheeler were the first two guys I was messaging with and spoke to today
– I’m not one of those guys who jumps around to different teams. I like being a part of one organization
– If I felt the team was going to struggle for five more years, I don’t sign that deal. Best days for this team are ahead
– I try and adapt as much as I can. I take pride in defence and the faceoff circle. Goals were tough to come by last season
