Right. So Sid is really going to be kicking his butt when RNH is making 12.5M in 2020.

As I posted somewhere, other than injury the 5yr deal could be better for the star players.

When the NHL had almost no deals longer than 5years we had Holik making 9M, Jagr making 13M, Sundin 8.5M etc...

If every 5 years you can compare yourself to your highest paid peers it just keeps driving salaries up.
