4 Years and just a hair over $4M per.
You know, not bad...not bad at all for a guy who, for having his warts defensively, STILL is far from terrible (he might be a bit better than Shattenkirk defensively), but he does bring some physicality and scoring prowess from the blue line.

And with the way the Hurricanes love to shoot the puck as a team, Gardiner may find himself in offensive zone heaven playing for Carolina.

Jake Gardiner as a top tier paid and top pairing everyday defensemen in Toronto may not have been a good thing, but Gardiner as first or second pair guy, on a team friendly contract for his skillset, on a lower pressure team like Carolina may pay off in spades for both team and player.

If 4M per was all it took to get him to sign, it's a wonder he was still sitting out there as long as he was....then again, he could have just SETTLED for the 4, after seeing that other teams simply were not going to meet any higher salary demands from his camp.

At any rate, a decent contract for a still pretty good, albeit turnover prone, attacker from the blue line.
