I know they blew up in the first round, but this is a bad move IMO. SJ re-signs them both for 3 years, at a slight pay cut, with NMC but now they want them to re-earn their leadership roles? Good luck in that locker room. 

In Topic: Shea Weber's shot is Dangerous

To any player that tries to block Weber's or Chara's shot... you're flippin' nuts. Blocking shots is dangerous to begin with, but those two guys are in a different league.

Inflation happens. Kane and Toews set the new standard, and I'm sure their agents had them do it on purpose. No biggie. Everything goes up over time. People acting shocked and annoyed are being ridiculous. Did they think the cap would go up and everyone would just keep making their old salaries? The world doesn't work like that.

Salary wise they didn't set the bar. Players in these long term contracts are already getting paid that type of money. It's just because of the longer contracts their cap is lower, just look at Weber. If you took the first 8 years of his contract his cap hit would be $11.5M. Suter and Parise would be at $10M cap hit if you only look at the first 8 years. Cap hits are rising but salaries are around the same. This hurts role players IMO, unless the cap keeps going up.

I agree he is a star. And this is a market value deal. But it show just how much prices are going up...

Well salary wise he is in the top 13 for players overall. Teams cant add years onto the deal to lower the cap hit anymore.

....aaaaaaand the mob goes wild?


Nope, it's what I thought he was going to get based on what Flip got back in the day.

Dekeyser 5 @ $4.5M.

Tatar 4 @ $3M

Sheahan  3 @ $1.5M

Glendening 2 @ $1M


Dekeyser, I have no problem paying him that much right now. He is already on par, arguably better, than Ericssons. I would do 8 years @ $5M per and be satisfied.




I was wrong on Sheahan, in the ball park on Tatar. As I said in the "Predicting our RFA Contracts" thread, he got Flip money but that money is a lower cap hit percentage now. Gus is gonna get paid next off season. If he puts up another 25G+ season $5M will be on the table I think.
