He is a 40 point center who is 36. I wouldn't touch him with that contract.

if injuries force him to "retire" then he will just be put on LTIR and have insurance pay him.

Well, pro-rated at 52 points last year. It's just a 2 year deal. Not a biggie.

No, blame the GMs. They're the ones doing the signing.

Next time, they should lockout the GM's, not the players. these prices are just silly.
The GM's have so little time to produce now, they are going to take their best shot by cutting corners, i.e. giving ridiculous money to FA's. The owners need to have a heart to heart with their GM's not the players.

Isn't the deal 5.25M/year. If so, that's already under 9%, no?

Except in NY, the GMs answer to the owner (or to the President, who answers to the owner). The owners have given their rubber stamp.

Where is Dagoon when you need him? Inside info on the Rangers would be great this day.

The Leafs have about $14-million in cap space now and Bernier, Kadri, Gunnarsson and Franson probably eat $11-million of that.

How anyone can ever take anything the owners say seriously, after seeing this, is beyond me. They piss and moan and shut the league down, and then have their GMs revert to the exact same behavior that got them to where they were.

Yep. Math was wrong. 8.1% now, likely 6% by the time it's up.

The teams with money will always spend to the cap. They just want the cap lower to protect themselves from themselves.

I still want Jagr but that's most likely not happening. I don't mind Sather just keeping quiet cause a lot of these signings are just terrible.

Both contracts are horrendous, but I prefer Clarkson's over Clowe's since he is a better player.

I'm happy if we just re-sign our guys to reasonable contracts. Next summer Sather will make his next big splash...so we have time to worry about that.
