In 3, 4, 5, 6 years time? In 7, 8, 9, 10 years time? That's my problem with the contract, not the value, but the length. For a 30 year old, on the back of a couple of half-decent seasons.

Franzen is already struggling with his knees, admitted to phoning it in during the regular season and was MIA during the playoffs. And he's actually getting paid a lot more than 3.9 mil right now, thats just his cap hit.


Wow he can lead the team in goals even when he is "phoning it in"?

That just makes his contract even better, imo.

Max Talbot contract with Flyers violates NHL CBA

LOL I called it right...just a matter of time when a front loaded contract will catch someones eye. Can you say RE-STRUCTURE??!!

That's a very minor technicality because someone didn't pay attention to the math. To lump it in with the long-term deals is stupid.

That just creates other loopholes. You can still front load contracts, and just stagger multiple contracts so high years coincide with other low years.

The Ehrhoff and Richards deals are fine, nothing like the rejected Kovy deal. The Kovy deal was bad because it took the principle to a ridiculous extreme. What was it? 44 years old originally? 6 years at league minimum (possibly below by that time)? Plus I think another 1 or 2 years at a low rate. NJ just went way too far with it.

Nothing is perfect. You'll either have loopholes, or you'll be too restrictive. At most, the rule as it stands needs a little tweaking. Maybe lower the amount that salary can go up or down. Maybe change the AAV cutoff from 40 to 37 or 38. Maybe make any deal that extends beyond 35 count as a 35+ contract. Nothing that should take more than a day or two to negotiate.


Ehrhoff's deal is fine...the back end of his deal is over the NHL min. MINIMUM PLAYER SALARY The minimum NHL player salary in 2005-06 and 2006-07 will be $450,000; $475,000 in 2007-08 and 2008-09; $500,000 in 2009-10 and 2010-11, and $525,000 in 2011-12 (to the extent the CBA is extended by the Union). http://www.capgeek.c...play.php?id=121




You can inflate the SB's (Signing Bonus) by years and dollars to the AVV (Average Value) but isn't actually part of the salary...so the AVV makes the cap.

Yeah, I said Ehrhoff's deal was fine. Not really sure what this has to do with my post...

And signing bonuses are irrelevent. For all intents and purposes they are the same as salary for the year in which they're earned.

Signing bonuses aren't apart of the salary, your mixing apples with oranges, but what ever...
