Cammy just signed for 6m, next year Fro is not going to be a King (fro will get 6.5 easy imo).
So what Cammy got 6... Zetterberg gets 5.5, as does Datsyuk. Franzen gets roughly 4 mil a year. Hossa gets and average of 5 mil a year with his new monster contract. I think if we can give Fro a Zetterberg type of contract, we are good. JMFJ, I'd say 5 years for 14 mil, paying him more down the road.
Actually I'm not too bummed about the Kings not doing anything so far. Because I have not seen one good deal. Everyone's been overpaid and that's what usually happens on the first day. From now on, I hope we end up getting that sniper we need on our team. Havlat's still available, not an ideal kind of sniper, but he's still young and talented. 4 year deal, nothing more.
If we can sign Havlat and Moen, then re-sign JMFJ and Frolov, I'm happy.
JayBo was not over paid
Hossa was not over paid $$$ wise maybe in years
Gaborik as much as people wanna think was not over paid
Only person that was over paid IMO was Cammy.. 6 million yea right... suckers
I'd have singed Gaborik to that deal. Gaborik is a high risk/high reward signing and I'm ready for the Kings to take a gamble.
I was thinking the same thing, only more in terms of a very good asset to be exchanged later on.
My dream scenario was DL signing Gaborik & JJ, but then trading both those guys to ATL for Kovalchuk in October/November, sort of like how the Kings acquired Allison early on in the 2001/02 season. We'd trade for Koval & sign him for 8 years.....
