Ehrhoff = no. First of all, who cares about the length of the deal? Is the writer Mr. Pegula's personal accountant? No? Ok then, he should just focus on the cap hit. A defensemen making 4m who scores 40 points during a bad season is an absolute steal.
Ehrhoff, Stastny, Havlat, Luongo, and maybe Cammalleri should be nowhere near that list. This list is extremely short-sighted since it's just looking at last season basically, Ehrhoff's a top pairing dman ffs.
I think Bryzgalov will have to prove he doesn't belong on that list this season. He certainly didn't play like he deserved a 9-year, $51 million contract. Briere's regular season play isn't worthy of a $6.5 million cap hit, either.
I don't know. Tough to say Luongo's contract is bad enough vs his talent to put him on this list and Bryzgalov's is not. BL is owed slightly less at this point, too, is he not?
Paul Martin was one of the steadier defenseman in the 1st round exit of the Pens
Flyers' fans and Pens fans alike are cracking up at this. After the first game Laviolette had his troops dumping the puck on Martin's side every single zone entrance he was on the ice because he kept giving it up over and over. The only thing that threw a wrench into this strategy was sitting Martin's ass in the press box.
