All the talk about cap hit is happening especially because of the term. Chill.

Regardless of term, this is about where he was going to come in on a new deal. Good for Bergevin on getting him on the lower end of that range, but considering salaries today, there isn't much difference between 4.5 to 5.5M

Just boggles my mind how financial figures, have mesmerized the average fan.

cool story bro...

did you break out your calculator before deciding this was a good deal?

let's just not even call Pacioretty, Pacioretty anymore...let's just call him "4.5"

1M

If you can get some bargain contract you can sign better UFA simple as that.

Max Pacioretty makes 500k more than PA Parenteau and David Jones, this is truly a steal.

oh yes...of course, because it's always a guarantee that that 1M you've been able to save will properly be re-invested.

because we all know ALL UFA's work out

1M saved on the cap is 1M saved, that's it. And with the cap possibly going down, it's even better. Funny though how that the 1M difference between a 7.5M and a 8.5M would be so much bigger on these boards though.

Sabres fan here. major jealousy both of the player and the deal. Oh hey look, we have someone on our team with a $4.5 million cap hit: Ville leino! let's just swap max pac and that guy and call it even
but seriously, congrats. I like the habs as much as a division rival can (except when we are playing them, obviously ) and it's nice that pacioretty seems happy about it. Hope he doesn't go drew stafford on you and suck for a decent portion of the year the contract kicks in though

What a great contract, AAV and term. Man, this new GM has done a fantastic job this offseason for the Canadiens. Say what you will about the Prust contract but they needed to make their team tougher.

Agreed, 1M saved on the cap is 1M saved...and that should only matter to the owner and his employers. Don't see why fans care so much, apparently we've convinced ourselves that the most frugal teams are the most successful one's. The Habs aren't a better team now, then they were 2 hours ago (i'm a Habs fan btw)...and the perceived cost savings associated with this deal certainly have no guarantee to provide that either.

as for the other bolded part of your text...agreed, it's all perception that have little to do with reality

Wow, that is fantastic. If Patches picks up from last season this is a damn larceny.
