Drew Stafford, Nathan Gerbe, Ville Leino, Christian Ehrhoff, Andrej Sekera, and Tyler Myers.

Congrats to Terry Pegula for graduating from the Daniel Snyder school of ownership.

What was that Terry? If you need money you will drill? Well looks like you will need money for all the buyouts coming. Start drilling.

What a stupid, petulant thread.

1. You'd be *****ing if Pegula didn't spend.

2. You don't like the contracts? Blame the GM, then. The owner provides the money, the GM makes the personnel decisions.

Is he supposed to be a hockey talent evaluator?

If you want to argue he should have fired Regier and hired a new GM I will listen.

Ok, seriously? The Dan Snyder school of ownership?

How people are putting any of the team's woes on Pegula is beyond me.

The Leino and Ehrhoff deals were all Pegula. He wanted Ehrhoff badly.

Yeah, Im sure it wasnt Darcy handing out those deals. Pegula's daughter may negotiate Tyler Ennis' 10 year deal.

If you have a problem with Ehrhoff's contract, you're even more lost than I thought.

Hmmm the only contracts here I'd consider an overpayment were Myers and Stafford. Myers because he's an RFA...and he'd already shown some inconsistency. The problem with giving him $5.5 M is that even if he plays his best and as an RFA, he isn't really gonna be deserving much more than that but there was a chance that they could pay maybe $4 M if he didn't play his best. Not doubting Myers as a dman because he's been good as long as the situation is good (ie playing with Regehr and not Sekera) but for an RFA before the 3rd year was up...it was a slight overpayment and they should probably have left it till later to get away with less.

With Stafford, it was an under the radar overpayment because he's always a bit inconsistent so all of a sudden he has one year (3/4th of an year actually) like that and he earns big?

The Leino and Ehrhoff signings were understandable...they were UFAs although Pegula probably should've shown more patience and waited till next season to sign someone instead of Leino because the younger players weren't gonna be ready this or next season to win a cup anyways so would've been worth waiting for a top six free agent who could be better or more proven for around the same. So not too much wrong with the UFA contracts and Gerbe/Sekera have decent contracts compared to comparable players.

I wouldn't panic though, and I don't expect any of these guys to be bought out.

Well that didn't take long.

Any "Dan Snyder" comparisons (or comparisons to any other owner for that matter) are probably premature at this point, considering he hasn't even owned the team for a whole season.

If you want to start flinging poo, the lineup should start with the coach and GM, then fill up the rest with some of the players who haven't been pulling their weight for the last few years. The only guy on your list that qualifies is Stafford.

He is a mediocre player that hasn't won a thing. An underachiever everywhere he has been.

Myers contract starts *next* season and shouldn't count in this total, since Myers gets none of that money this year.

Let no rant be used before its time.

Same could be said for Jarome Iginla, and Shane Doan, and Patrick Marleau, they haven't won anything either.

We locked in no matter what. Every contract has been terrible this year. Every single one. How does Myers go from a budding star to scratched?

This is our team for the next 3 years unless they admit mistakes. This team is terrible. Darcy will shove this core down our throats until we cant breathe anymore. Gaustad's up next. Then Ennis. All these guys will stay here forever, its like a bad dream that will never end.

Third among defensemen in goals the previous two seasons with 28, genius. But the Canucks didn't win the Cup, so that means he sucks!

What is he here? Where are our Sedin's to set him up? Where is our Thornton and Marleau? We cant even get a player like that because money bags Pegula is throwing money at average players. We cant even make trade, no one wants our garbage for a quality player. We dont even have the cap room to add anyone. Its just a poor job.

Sad to see fans turning on the ownership already. Oh darn, we went from a guy who only cared about the bottom line to a guy who's committed to winning the championship.

How the hell does that make Ehrhoff an underachiever?

You're sinking incredibly fast here.

Aren't those four guys all underachieving losers by your standards?

What is Pegulas fault is pretty much giving Dumb and Dumber ( marcy and Linda) a free pass for his 3 year 'plan' a good owner would hold some accountability to those ****ing loser clowns and fire their *****.

Stafford: Took a chance on a young player with a strong season, looks bad early.
Gerbe: Ditto, but for cheap.
Leino: Overpaid on an unnecessary risk, looks bad so far.
Ehrhoff: Got a top-30 Dman on the cheap. This is a GREAT contract.
Sekera: What's your beef? He's been no worse than their third best defenseman this year all in all.
Myers: Are you serious?

I honestly don't understand how you can see this as a sign of bad ownership.
