Wish Shero signed players to those long term deals?
Notice how the Flyers and Red Wings signed all their core players to those long term contracts to save money on the cap each year? With the Pens core being at such a young age, anybody wish that Ray Shero would sign our guys to those deals?? Now it wouldnt have to be 10 years but how about 7 or 8? It would really help us on the wing to bring in a high impact player or 2.
But of course there is the down in those deals to. Injuries, lack of production and ugh ugh concussions ugh ugh, can really damper a team down the road with those deals.
Look at Tampa Bay, they still have like 7 or 8 years left of Lecavalier's deal and he's clearly in the back nine of his prime.
It's just that if we don't get the production from Sid our team does lack depth at forward. Geno's production and style of play in general hasnt been the same since the Cup in 09. These long term deals can help out a team in some ways. Just a thought.
hahaha. Going to suck if he gets banned from the league and all but it might be worth it!
Think of all the new Pens records he could set!
