Ottawa Senators Sign Centre Chris Kelly

So Bryan Murray finally came to a contract agreement with versatile centre, Chris Kelly.  Details are apparently for four years at $2.1 million per season. 

Signing Chris Kelly is  a good step forward for the Sens.  He is defensively responsible, he can play the PK, PP, and any one of 4 lines.  He has showed a nice (not extravagant) scoring touch. 

Although players do not come cheap anymore, 2.1 million for Chris Kelly is a little over the top.  However is 4 - 5k really that much of a big deal?

As far as centre's go he is versatile, reliable, and possibly a big locker-room leader down the road.  I wonder if this will spell the end for a player or two down the road.  ALA Antoine Vermette?  Only time will tell.
