#2628832 Interesting Article about NHL Veterans Not finding jobs

It makes sense. When you have certain guys like Toews & Kane just as an example making huge amounts of money, rather then paying a vet 2 or 3 mil a year, it's more affordable cap wise to play youth on an entry level or close to an entry level contract. I wonder if these guys held out at the beginning of UFA hoping to get paid more??



Economically it makes sense. Reward the elite and exploit the poor. Let the middle class players burn. And the world turns.

#2619977 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 10 July 2015 - 02:25 PM

I think we both got a fair deal ... He had what ? 2 27 goal seasons ? I think 4.75 is more than fair , wouldn't call it a steal

Just think the other gm's throwing 7.5 per at the ryan o'reillys of the league are f***en morons

Hate ken holland all you will for not making more deals and so on, but he'll never over pay someone

If Gus was asking for 7 per he'd be gone

0% chance Ericsson gets dealt ... I know a lot of people here hate him but we don't have guys his size in the back


What's the point of size when you don't use it. hickets uses his size more then Ericsson

#2557530 KHL Struggling Financially

Posted by kipwinger on 18 December 2014 - 03:51 PM

Looks like a number of teams will be folding next season. 

 

Theres a report in the article that a player hasn't even been paid since October.

 

Looks like the crazy contracts handed out to players are coming back as a negative for the league..

 

Good news for the NHL?

 

 

Pretty sure the collapsing Russian economy resulting from Putin's disasterous foreign policy blunders has more to do with it than their penchant to overpay.  Particularly considering the league was subsidized by the government (currently dealing with sanctions and declining foreign investment). 

 

Or it was bad contracts.  Either way.
