Enstrom is the Jets' top defenseman - and one of the better all-around defensemen in the entire league - and this contract is pretty fair value for both Enstrom and the Jets. Personally, I'm excited to have Enstrom around for the long run. It's a great day for Winnipeg, and therefore, the rest of the world.
