Well, he wasn't anywhere close to that last year with 31g, 60 pts and a brutal -26.

I personally don't like those kind of contracts. I think 6 years, which is what Pleks signed, is long enough. Plus, it ensures there is no cap run around. At 6 years, Ehrhoff's cap hit would be $5.6m not $4m, and Kovalchuk's would be $8.5 m and not $6.6m.

I have to believe the NHL is going to put a cap on term in the next CBA.
