Best/Worst Value

Using the numbers from the NHLPA web site, which three players have performed the best while making the least amount of money, and on the flip side, which three haven't come close to matching their paycheck.

Balastik Jaroslav $600,000.00
Berard Bryan $2,000,000.00
Chimera Jason $494,000.00
Denis Marc $1,672,000.00
Fedorov Sergei $6,080,000.00
Foote Adam $4,600,000.00
Hainsey Ron $570,000.00
Hrdina Jan $1,050,000.00
Hulse Cale $1,140,000.00
Klesla Rostislav $943,635.00
LeClaire Pascal $627,000.00
Letowski Trevor $551,000.00
Malhotra Manny $570,000.00
Nash Rick $3,500,000.00
Richardson Luke $2,090,000.00
Rupp Michael $570,000.00
Shelley Jody $608,000.00
Suchy Radoslav $1,140,000.00
Vyborny David $1,140,000.00
Westcott Duvie $500,000.00
Zherdev Nikolai $942,400.00

Please note, this does not include guys like Goertzen or Fritsche who are currently in Syracuse...don't have those numbers, but if you do, feel free to add.

Bargains

1. Chimera ($494K) lowest-paid regular has been pretty good this year
2. Malhotra ($570K) seems to be developing into a solid two-way center
3. Westcott ($500K) with a little more consistency would be one of biggest bargains in league

Overpriced

1. Hulse ($1.14M) he's paid how much to sit in the press box?
2. Richardson ($2.09M) I still like the orginal signing a few years ago, though
3. Hrdina ($1.05M) has began to earn his salary over the last two months, though

Have fun, and let the Fedorov bashing begin!

Bargins:

1. Suchy ($1.14M) Hasn't been hurt and has play solid all year. Very important to this team.
2. Zherdev ($942K) Nik for under 1 million is a steal. Should be around 30+ goals on the year.
3. Hainsey ($570K) Soild pick-up off waivers.
4. Westcott ($500K) Duvie has stepped up his game this year and become a true #5-6 NHL dman.


Overpriced:

1. Richardson ($2.09M) Is way way way too much.
2. Hulse ($1.14M) It's easy to see that Hulse just sucks.
3. Berard ($2M) +/- of around -28 for a defenseman? Ouch.
4. Foote ($4.6M) I hate to say it but 4.6 million is overpaying. Still love the guy though and think the deal had to be made for the future of the club.

Bargains:

1. Suchy - should get a pay increase in the off-season. Very cool and calm under pressure. Not noticeable, which is a good thing.

2. Letowski - Great PKer, also only a -1 on the year, which is a miracle. The definition of a solid third-liner.

3. Nash - Getting him under contract before the salary cap went up was a genius move by Doug. Only a $3.5 mill cap hit this year and will lead the team in goals.

4. Vyborny - Mr. Underrated in the NHL. Will get hefty raise in the off-season, but $1.1 mill for a player of his caliber is a flat-out steal.


Overpriced

1. Shelley - Should be at the league minimum for what he provides.

2. Richardson - Provides leadership, but $2 mill salary is too much and just begging to be shed in the off-season.

3. Hulse - Obvious. $1.1 mill to sit.

Meh. I happen to think he gets what he deserves and earns his check.

IMO, Letowski is easily the best bargain --- a vereran who can do a number of different things reasonably well.

I thought they did the cap number by dividing the total amount of contract by years, so Nash's cap hit is around 5 million even though he's getting 3.5. He'll be a bargain in year 4 and 5 when he's scoring goals in massive amounts, getting paid 6.5 and 7.5, but having it count as 5 against our cap.

It's something like a 5.3 million cap hit, per the five years.

Sorry, meant $3.5 mill toward Mr. Mac's budget, which is the number that Doug actually bases salaries on.

Hainsey is even a better bargain than those numbers indicate. I do believe that was his total salary for the year and Montreal is on the books for half of that.

I cant beleive chimera doesnt have a huge chip on his shoulder over his contract. Since he just got married I bet he is going to be asking for a hefty raise.

OVER

-shelley
-richardson
-hirdina



UNDER

-Vyborny aka God aka muhammad aka yawa aka the creator aka the the trapped alien soles that scientoligsts beleive in.
-Chimera

Cujo at 900k might be one of the best deals in the league this year. Despite some recent poor play, he has been a nice suprise this season.

Vyborny imo is the best value player for the CBJ when you consider what he has done over the long term for this team.

Suchy and Chimera are having great seasons, but Vyb's has been the iron man for 4 years now, steadily improving every season, while not missing games.
