There are so many bad contracts this year, what is the one that makes you LOL the most?
I usually laugh when i see 1.6 a year x 4 years for Boogaard. He's only played in 22 games this year. So if he makes it to 25 that will be $64,000 per game for a guy that averages maybe 5 minutes of ice time. Incredible.

The combination of Finger & Lebda is hilarious and a close second.

Any contract that is over 1 million with the player in the minors.

Originally I thought this question was about DRW. If we're concerned it is Rafalski. 6M is too much for one dimensional player. He is very good at offense and very bad sat defense. Better version of M.A. Bergeron.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Ive always thought part of his defensive problems lie with the fact he played opposite lidstom for so long so team will always dump it to his side, cause he isnt the perfect human, and he just get continually creamed into the boards.

Why does everyone think Rafalski is so bad on D? I mean I watch most Wings games, and I know he's no Nick Lidstrom, but he seems to hold his own quite well defensively.

Lebda. That is all.

Certainly gets my vote, for sheer entertainment value as a Wings fan. It was a baffling contract at the time. Lebda was a known quantity. For those who think Burke is a genius, this is definitely one to bring up.

Agreed.

Raf isn't one dimensional. He is an exceptional offensive D-man, he's just not Lidstrom when it comes to the defensive side. And honestly for some of those crazy ass turnovers he makes, a fair amount of times when they work they're incredible passes that lead to great scoring chances. But when they don't, it's ugly. High risk, high reward.

His contract looks worse now, but at the time it was a solid deal. Schneider left, Holland had little time to fill that spot, and we signed Raf at market value at the time. Probably a little under.

I think you mean Franzen. As the years go by, that contract is going to look worse and worse
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
