But the question of this thread is the Drury signing a bad one, I don't see how anyone can say it wasn't. Good player to sign, terrible contract to give.
yea hes making 10 million his first 6 years then hes going down to 1 million in his last year, its over a period of 11 years, so his cap hit is 7.5 million, yet hes really making more then that in his first 5-6 years. so in the next 4 years lecavalier will be making 40 million whereas drury will make 28, theres a difference there, and yes vinny gave the lightning a home-town discount and also he gave them a little help with cap relief by giving up money towards the end of his contract to make the average salary less(cap hit)
Lecavalier will earn $10-million per season in salary and bonuses for the first six seasons of the deal, before dropping to $8.5-million in 2016-2017, $4-million in 2017-2018, $1.5-million in 2018-2019 and $1-million and 2019-2020..
