The Wild have signed centre Mikko Koivu to a seven-year contract extension that could keep the franchise centre in Minnesota through the 2017-18 season.


Maybe overpayment not sure just passing along info.

Capgeek info.

Wow, that's absurd. He's being paid more than Datsyuk.

You're right, he's a good player but he's far too close to that $7mil salary range.

Exactly, when teams make stupid signings like that it really screws up the market.

How much can Modano make there if they're throwing around cash like this?

I always thought of Datsyuk of an $7.5-$8m man myself so we have him at a darn good cap hit. They better hope Mikko pops out a few 100 point season :P

Holy s***... this is just getting out of hand with these contracts. I mean he is a pretty talented player but he is more of a poor man's Adam Oates. Outrageous, Minnesota.

Well they already have something like 15 forwards signed and 2.3 left. If anyone snatches Modano I would think it would be San Jose. They have 9 forwards, 7 defensemen and 2 goalies signed and have 6.1 to play with still.

Minnesota = Fail ... what a waste of money 7 million is way too much, would of been better spent if they had let Koivu walk and grab Kovalchuk at least the guy can score 50.

Yeah with Malhotra signing with Vancouver,the Sharks have an open spot for 3rd line center....

overpaid, although he is extremely underrated, and will probably make it seem somewhat worth it.

Minnesota's lines could look something like:

Cullen-M.Koivu-Havlat
Brunette-Sheppard-Miettinen
Kobasew-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Nystrom-W.Peters-Staubitz

Minnesota has a lot of forwards already under contract though.I don't think Modano will be in Minnesota next year.I'm thinking San Jose or Anaheim.

Have you seen the way his deal is structured?

Sources: Koivu's deal is 7 years, $47.25 million. $6.75 AAV, no-trade, 5 signing bonuses throughout. Richest deal in #mnwild history

Check out the details : http://capgeek.com/p...play.php?id=925


EDIT: The copy/paste of the table didn't translate well.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Koivu is a very good player, but not that good. I guess its because Minny has money to spend. I think Koivu would be good aruond 5 million for that kid of term, not 7. Thats 2 million too high
