This is a very solid signing for the Flames. I dislike the 5 years though. 3 years would have been the best bet for him, but if the Flames trust him to play that well then by all means...
Yea with the cap at 70.2 million Wideman's cap% is 7.48% compared to
Mark Streit in 2008-2009 signed a 5 year deal at 4.1 mil a year after a 62 point season (in a much higher scoring season) or a percent of 7.23%
Mark Giordano in 2011-2012 signed a 5 year deal at 4.02 mil a year after a 43 point year for a cap percent of 6.25% (nice home town discount)
Dustin Byfuglien in 2011-2012 signed a 5 year deal at 5.2 mil a year after a 53 point year for a cap percent of 8.09%
Wideman's contract is a bit of overpayment versus pervious ufa defenseman but he was the only RH defenseman available.
