We Agree that Price has franchise goalie potential ? He isn
t there yet ... but he could become as good as the goalie you mentioned on that list right ?
Simple thing ... that I thought you would have realize a long time ago...
Why does all the Goalie
you mentioned ... havent took
a deal like the one you described ?? Cuz it's obviously not in their best interest...
Henrik Lundqvist as an Exemple
Before signing is
big contract, took a 1 years deal @ 4.250 millions
Then sign 6 years @ 6.875 millions
if Carey follow
the same path. Signing a short term deal...take 1 season to prove he can get the job done... then sign the big contract.
For the last part ... thanks for pointing
the obvious. That usually right there that his agent will say: Hello.
right there is where his agent will say "Hello."*
Have fun Mr.Manager !!!
Before you try to sound intelligent perhaps you should to avoid making a punctuation/spelling/grammatical error after every 3 words, but i digress.
I did give you a number, i said 4.75 million a year...i also said the difference between 4.75 and 5 million is negligible if you give enough term, heck i'd go all the way up to 5.75 million a year. But the point is that i start at 4.75 and squeeze every dollar to lower the cap hit by adding term. I won't look like a fool in 4 months, why? Because this is MY thought process...a guy MUCH more cerebral than you.
What part of giving a player a 2 million dollar raise while he's an RFA and coming off a mediocre season do you not understand? That 2 million dollar raise should influence the contract in regards to his UFA years by dropping the total cap hit by a million or so. As an UFA Price should get 5.75 million EASILY, as an RFA (see HALAK) he should get under 3.75 million because he's proven less...oh my goodness common sense?
Based on a 4 year deal: 3.75 (RFA)+3.75 (RFA) + 5.75 (UFA) + 5.75 (UFA) = Cap Hit of 4.75 million (OMG LOOK HOW THE CAP HIT IS UNDER 5 million)
Based on a 8 year deal: Add above + 5.75 (UFA) + 5.75 (UFA) + 5.75 (UFA) + 5.75 (UFA) = Cap Hit of 5.25 million
How about giving price 6 million during his UFA years?
Based on a 4 year deal: 3.75 (RFA)+3.75 (RFA) + 6 (UFA) + 6 (UFA) = Cap Hit of 4.88 million
Based on a 8 year deal: Add above + 6 (UFA) + 6 (UFA) + 6 (UFA) + 6 (UFA) = Cap hit of 5.4 million
How about Lundqvist money (6.875 million) during his UFA years, a player which has proven much more?
Based on a 4 year deal: 3.75 (RFA)+3.75 (RFA) + 6.875 (UFA) + 6.875 (UFA) = Cap hit of 5.3 million
Based on a 8 year deal: Add above + 6.875 (UFA) + 6.875 (UFA) + 6.875 (UFA) + 6 .875(UFA) = Cap hit of 6.1 million
But then we can go into clear cap circumvention tactics by loading up the contract in the middle parts of it and giving something significantly less in the final 2 or so years.
Based on a 10 year deal: 3.75 (RFA)+ 3.75 (RFA) + 6.875 (UFA) + 6.875 (UFA)+ 6.875 (UFA)+ 6.875 (UFA)+ 6.875 (UFA)+ 6.875 (UFA)+ 2.5 (UFA)+ 2.5 (UFA) = Cap hit of 5.38 million
This is my thought process, a thought process of a winner.
