In Topic: Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

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.

Make it 5 and I agree.

Haven't heard it about Chicago at all. The Pens on the other hand are a prime example of my point: They didn't won a cup since '09 because they lack depth, which is because Crosby and Malkin eat up a lot of their capspace. Granted, there were other reasons too, but the main reason for me is the lack of quality bottom 6 forwards and/or defenders.
Chicago and LA were strong teams over the past few years because they had the caproom to afford those kind of guys. With these contracts Chicago has taken the Pittsburgh road and it will show over the next few years.


When the Hawks screwed up with the RFA thing back in '09, it was suppose to be the end of them. They then signed Kane and Toews to to their current contracts the next year, which again was suppose to give them cap issues but it didn't. CORE!!!

At least Holland tried. He can't help it if a player takes less money elsewhere. There's definitely something rotten in the Wings. The last year has really been embarrassing, a sensation I'm not used to as a Wings fan since the mid-nineties. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

That is his problem. Holland cannot land talent to help his team out and that is the GMs job at the end of the day.
