In Topic: Worst Free Agent Signings Ever

18 August 2015 - 12:05 PM

I suppose the salary cap and how high the average salaries are reasons why recent bad contracts are even worse than they used to be. Still it would be interesting to read about bad contracts from previous decades. Something like in 1953 Bruins gave a monstrous $500/year contract to a defender who ended up being a bust and the francise barely escaped bankruptcy.

And KFQ played solid last year


Few would disagree. The point is that there's probably not room for him next year with all the kids coming up. Especially since many play similar styles to Quincey's but are much cheaper.

Interesting. I've never heard of him but he was drafted by NYI in the 4th round four years ago. I suppose he starts below Kronwall, Green, Dekeyser, Ericsson, Quincey, Smith, Kindl, Marchenko, Ouellet, Jensen and Sproul making him the 12th defenceman in the depth chart. He's as old as Ouellet and Sproul and year younger than Marchenko.

I could make up some gossip too but I think this is just the case of Toronto offering too good a contract to refuse. Like with Babcock. The salary cap puts teams on an even field only regarding player contracts. Wealthy teams can still have their way acquiring personnel if they want.

Williams recalled his son, a month ago, saying, "Daddy, if we don’t go back to L.A., you should play with Ovechkin, because he’s the best."


That's cute.
