Just been reading some stuff boaring offseason and its come to me that is having zetterbeg locked up tell 40 at such a high salary a god thing? i could be going crazy I dunno but it seems like this hurts the futcher. I mean having a 40 year old with a cap hit of around six million. Dont you guys think our team will be pretty bad with guys like Franzen and Zetterberg at a high cap hit around age 40.

Who knows what the cba/salary cap will be like in 10 years?

They might also retire at 37/38 when they are past their prime etc and their contracts will go off the cap

One thing to keep in mind is the progression of the salary cap. $6m of cap space now is worth a lot more than $6m of cap space later. Just as an example, the salary cap in 2005 was $39m. Now, 5 years later, it's $59m. If that rate of progression continues, the salary cap will be $100m 10 years from now. Even if it only continues to progress at half rate, it'll be 79-80m dollars. A 6m cap hit for a 39 year old in that range is equivalent to, say, the 3m we're playing Flip now. If you think Zetterberg can play at Flip's current level in the last, say, 2 years of his contract, at roughly the same (or slightly greater) the equivalent salary, do you think it's worth it for us getting a $1-1.5m discount for the other 8 years of his contract? I certainly think so.

Franzen's contract progresses even better, if the cap were, say, 85m 10 years from now, he'd only be getting paid about equal to the money Draper is now. Considering that Franzen is a better player than Draper ever was, and that Franzen could probably put up 3rd line play at 39, do you think paying Draper-equivalent money at that stage in his career is worth it for the huge discount we're getting for a 35g/clutch playoff guy?

If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

I was wondering the same thing. This misspelling seems very suspicious to me.

futcher


As far as the question goes, it's hard to tell what kind of impact these long term contracts are going to have. I don't fully understand the economics of it, but I will admit that the thought of a 40 yr old Zetterberg playing for his current cap hit is a little horrifying.

They will, but the players who are locked up can't change a contract mid-contract.

May not be a troll but goodness what kind of a question is this to ask tho? Obviously it was a great decision to keep Hank this long keeping it cap friendly and also one of the most dynamic two way players in the world and future Captain. I'll take it.

I asked this question because people keep telling me that this was the worst signing the redwings have done just wanted to know what you guys think of this.

And what makes you want to listen to these people on this particular topic? It's a bad signing...if you're a fan of another team.

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.

Both are great deals Z will be the next C and Franzen is a beast who could score 40 goals this year top end on low end 30. With years of the same numbers.
