Ryan Suter overpaid?

Both signed 13 years contract. Would you rather have Keith at 5.5 or Suter at 7.5?

If you say Keith, then that measn Suter was overpaid. Suter is now the highest paid dmen in the league but hes not even top 10. I can name 10 dmen I would take ahead of Suter

HAHAHAHA, I would seriously like to see your list of 10, because honestly I dont think there even 4 that are better then him.

Chara, Weber(Arguable) are the only two in the NHL right now that are better than Suter, and Weber is arguable. We'll find out this year who was picking up the others slack together.

Personally, Suter is #2 in the NHL behind Chara right now.

Someone sounds really mad cause Suter didnt sign with there team, HAHAHAHA comical to say 10 guys are better than Suter.

Then name them. And Suter is top 10 easily.

Yes, overpaid. Highest cap hit for a defensemen with a 13 year contract who has not won one thing or have been nominated for an award.

No I guess you can justify it because some teams were willing to give more to Parise so Parise took a bit less and Suter got more.

Also I wouldn't really take too many dmen over him.....Weber/Chara/Pietrangelo/maybe Keith/maybe Letang/maybe Karlsson and maybe Myers if you wanna go on potential (size/skill combo).

Keith signed his contract 2+ yrs ago when the cap was less than 60 M iirc.

Did you ever consider Keith is underpaid?

Dmen I would take over Suter:

Weber
Karlsson
Pietrangelo


That's it right now. Chara is better but significantly older, no one else who could end up better is far enough along for me to bet on them over Suter.

Karlsson, Weber, Chara...then it's probably Suter. But he's still overpaid, yes... Especially with all the extra crap and length of term.

Chara, Karlsson, Weber, Doughty, Keith, Petro are all arguably better. (with everything considered and going forward)

Yeesh, Suter has become pretty overrated if people really would take him over Duncan Keith despite being 2 million dollars more on the cap each year.

Or maybe Keith's become underrated. Perhaps a bit of both.

Suter plays precisely the same game as Keith does. They're almost exactly the same player in style and ability.

People saying Karlsson are laughable. Kid had 1 good season, theres no way he maintains a 70 point pace as a Dman over his career, he probably ends up 50-60 consistently, and thats only 10-15 more then Suter. Suter is way better then karlsson at everything else.

Suter is better then Karlsson. Pietrangelo is arguable, but Karlsson is not.

To answer the question, though, he's overpaid by a tad. Negligible. Great defenseman.

7.54 is what he would make on like a 1-4 year deal, anything over and that should drop each year not stay the same. On a 13 year deal he should be in the 5-5.5 mark.

Is it really 7.54 for 13 straight years? ouch

Only guys I would take over him are

Weber, Pietrangelo, Karlsson, Doughty, and maybe Keith. Chara is too old now I would rather Suter.

He probably is, but how is Keith's contract relevant to this at all?

No...he actually makes, 12, 12, 11 for the first three years of his contract.


Chara
Weber
Keith
Karlsson
Yandle
Doughty
Pietrangelo
Hell, I might even pick Letang, Edler and Shattenkirk over him...

If your options are to overpay for Ryan Suter or to not have Ryan Suter on your team (assuming there's a decent amount of cap space), you take Option 1 every time.

You can say that about every superstar UFA. But that is not the topic we are discussing.
