For many of us, we can afford a lot of money over time but can't drop huge percentages of that same expenditure on day one. This is an entire nearly best case year's gross gate receipts payable to Rinne and Weber across 50 week if the offer is matched. $68mil of bonus money paid in less than five years if matched. $27mil to Weber in 50 weeks if matched.
Crosby's contract pays less in the first six years than Weber receives in signing bonus money alone. Crosby's contract is also potentially insurable for concussions and totally insurable for other injuries while none of Weber's bonus money is. There is almost no risk mitigation possible with the offer sheet.
Best case Scenario:
CAPGEEK.COM USER GENERATED ROSTER
My Custom Lineup
Gabriel Bourque ($0.618m) / David Legwand ($4.500m) / Martin Erat ($4.500m)
Jack MacLellan ($0.600m) / Mike Fisher ($4.200m) / Patric Hornqvist ($3.083m)
Craig Smith ($0.900m) / Paul Gaustad ($3.250m) / Brandon Yip ($0.750m)
Matt Halischuk ($0.713m) / Nick Spaling ($1.050m) / Brian McGrattan ($0.600m)
Shea Weber ($7.857m) / Hal Gill ($2.000m)
Ryan Ellis ($1.440m) / Roman Josi ($1.000m)
Kevin Klein ($1.350m) / Jim Vandermeer ($0.525m)
Pekka Rinne ($7.000m)
Chris Mason ($1.500m)
J.P. Dumont ($1.333m) / Brett Lebda ($0.467m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $49,236,309; BONUSES: $1,135,000
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $20,963,691
Explanation: Players on our ELC's and 2-ways cost more than league minimum, and Vandermeer would be a solid signing anyway
-A Weber signing would result in austerity spending, particularly in the next 12 months, in other words, 0 cash to sign either Kostitsyn or Colin Wilson
-No 13th forward is signed or called up, leaving McGrattan as 12th forward when roster is healthy, which doesn't bother me because I love enforcers and he won't look out of place on a 4th line.
