Awful deal, McPhee. I realize the Caps need some bodies on defense next year, but this is not the price the Caps should be paying for Erskine with the salary cap coming down.
It's absolutely terrible. There's no way Erskine was in a position to demand a ~33% raise.
More important, in the face of a clear need for more mobile defensemen, McPhee signed an immobile player who should be the #6-7 to a contract that suggests he should at least be an everyday player. It makes no sense.
