Worst contract of the day award is still going to Toronto taking Armstrong at 3 mil. Just wait till he blindsides someone and gets suspended, hes the perfect person for the league to make an example of.

I loved Tokyo when I lived there Roppongi FTW.


Man o man, you lived in Roppongi? You must be unbelievably wealthy. But yea, Roppongi Hills is nice (near malls and Tokyo Tower) but the main strip area has gotten REALLY dodgy.

Okay. So how does it work when a team front loads a contract??


The only big benefit of front loaded contracts is that the player gets the big bucks now rather than later which they want because of the time value of money.

Take the Hossa deal for example:

7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 4.000 1.000 1.000 0.750 0.750

Works out to a 5.223 per year hit, the last few years have to drop down drastically for it to work.

Which is why the league has rules to prevent it from dropping too much. For instance it can not go from 7.9 to 1.0, I believe it can't be more than a third of the previous years contract.

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Teams front-load a contract to get the player to sign for a lower total amount which reduces the cap hit. The reasoning/benefit to the player is they get the bulk of the contract earlier on and they can re-coup the "lost" money through investing.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Pretty decent signing for Vancouver, probably just the right amount of money.

big raise for Manny, he could really help Van too though... interesting... maybe a little steep for him with the NTC, but could be good...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Van is a cup contender, they just need little tweaks to put them over the edge.

Meh, I think 3 mil is too much for Armstrong. If Burke didn't jump the gun so fast, he'd probably end up signing for 2 mil. He's a solid guy but 3 mil is quite a lot for his services.


Too true.
