This is what signifies the true total horror of the Horcoff contract.

They gave him max value dollars.
They gave him term.
They gave him the NTC clause.

I agree with most others on here, there has to be a trade off. You want term? You sacrifice dollars. You want dollars? You sacrifice term and traded clauses.

I'd like the Oilers to have ZERO ntc or nmc at all, none and make it a team policy. Will it hurt the team at times? Perhaps but there is nothing worse than being stuck with a player.

There is no sign in overpaying a player short term but there sure is long term. Offer a two year deal at a premium number. Then reevaluate in a year or two.
