Alzner signed to two-year deal ($1.285M cap hit)
 
VogsCaps: #Caps have signed defenseman Karl Alzner to a two-year deal.

Kicking and screaming I'm sure.

It's QO deadline day too so I imagine a few contracts whether QOs or other contracts will be announced today.


Nice to know this is done and for 2 years. Now the question, $


approx. 1.3M great

Cap hit on the Alzner deal is just under $1.3 mil. He will be paid $1.3 mil in '11-12 and $1.27 mil in '12-13. Total of $2.57 for two years.
GMGM is an f'ing wizard.

pman25 07-15-2011 09:03 AM

money is cheap, around 1.3 per.

itsjustsurvival 07-15-2011 09:04 AM

w00t.

Langway 07-15-2011 09:04 AM

Super terms.

DCRedhawk21 07-15-2011 09:05 AM

1.3??? Christ... who is his agent? Is he still an RFA at the end of this contract?

Atlas 07-15-2011 09:05 AM

Great. RFA at the end of it, I hope? If not--that's bad.

yay 07-15-2011 09:06 AM

Can we all quit whining now?

sk84fun_dc 07-15-2011 09:06 AM

If the rules don't change, yes, he will be RFA with arb. rights when this contract ends.

Marshall 07-15-2011 09:06 AM

Great deal.

Francesa 07-15-2011 09:07 AM

Good deal.

Yep. Gave up money in order to go straight to his arbitration years, I guess (even though he's such a hard guy to find comparables for, much less get offer sheet leverage, that he might never have been in line for a really big payday).

JP Barry.

Comparable to Sauer, but still pretty well below market, fantastic deal.

We can haz Sundin?

Drake1588 07-15-2011 09:11 AM

Ha! That's awesome. He'll get a hefty boost when arbitration eligible, as I am sure he's been told. Without the benefit of arbitration rights, UFA rights, and no offer sheets, as Barry stated publicly (perhaps unwisely), there are not a lot of options.

He'll get paid in two years. JP Barry is one of the top 2-3 agents in the game. This wasn't simply a poor agent; this is a player without leverage signing about market value for a guy with as few rights as he has and no points to boot.

BiPolar Caps 07-15-2011 09:17 AM

WOW!!!!!

Now trade Schultz and resign Hannan and all will be right with the world. :yo:

pgreene 07-15-2011 09:18 AM

rar, he's punishing the team!! gmgm is teh sux!

oh wait... a bottom end deal for a top end player? i see...

Just when Hamrlik, Poti and Erskine's salaries will be coming off the books.

BiPolar Caps 07-15-2011 09:26 AM

Though Cap Geek doesn't have it up yet, we were 400 k under, I assume the 1.3 to Alzner would make it 900 k over then. Poti going to LTIR takes 2.875 away which translates then to us being 1.9 under. Couple that with just moving Jeff Schultz's 2.75 would be more than enough for resigning Scott Hannan then.

strungout 07-15-2011 09:27 AM

Well done.

What's the lowdown on space now with Poti on LTIR?

Raikkonen 07-15-2011 09:29 AM

****ing cool

Mothra 07-15-2011 09:34 AM

wow....Caps "lucked" into another one.....and imagine, after GMGM/BB ruined his career, his game, and robbed him of his childhood....he still signed a deal at a decent salary.
