So you think the contract is bad or no? More examples: Tarasenko at 7.5 or Stepan at 6.5.
Voracek was 5th in the entire league in scoring this last season. And he's big and he's young. I'm saying he pretty much got market value.
I think he probably got paid a little too much. But not terribly so. I guess my overall point is that for negotiation purposes, contracts for guys like Kane, Toews, and ROR matter. But in determining a players actual value they don't say much. All three of those guys got paid the way they did because of externalities. I guess what I'm saying is, there's a tendency to think "Well if O'Reilly got 7.5 then Voracek is worth 8.5". Which is how contract negotiations work, I understand, but it's flawed because O'Reilly isn't actually worth 7.5. He's just worth that to a desperate team.
