He's signed until he's 36. That's 8 years at $5.75 mil per for a guy who over the last 3 years has scored 22 goals and 70 points total in 145 games played--which averages out to about 40 points per season. No. 1 center? For **** sake. If he's your No. 1 center you're going nowhere. Overpaid slightly?-- I don't think so and the term is a lot longer than it needs to be. Fair deal for Zajac would have been $3.5 mil per for 4 years. Then he'd have some real value--kind of like a Matt Cullen 10 years ago or Chris Kelly today. I don't know what LL was thinking--somehow he loses Parise but he has to lock this guy up long term. Not that Zajac is a bad player but I wouldn't go near that contract of his and for the thread starter--you can't really separate a player's value from his contract--it doesn't work in a cap world.
