Ekblad's rookie contract

When is Panthers going to sign him? I don't think there's nothing to negotiate. But I see other teams signing their first round candidates already, why hasn't Panthers signed him yet? I think Tallon said something they'll wait till rookie camp, but why not sign him already? What's the difference, he'll get max anyways?

Good question. Must be the secondary bonus thresholds.

Why do we need to rush to sign him? As you said, it makes no difference.

I don't think he's signed yet simply because there's no rush to, but if there is an issue it's probably working out his bonuses. The Panthers are near/over the bonus limit which has ramifications on their cap for next year. His base salary of 925k is already a certainty, as you noted.

Once Hayes gets sorted out. Though I think Tallon is just waiting to get Ekblad more motivated for camp. Every interview about Ekblad he says he'll be there on opening night, so I'm not worried.

I also meant he will get max bonuses, but why is that, year after year, Panthers is not first team to sign their 1st round rookies?

Its Tallon's MO he doesn't usually sign his draft picks quickly. If a guy is sure to make the team he gets them signed fast like Barkov. Otherwise he waits. Don't know if it is a motivational tool or what but he did it in Chicago too.

Toews @340 days sent back his first year
Kane @31 days made the team 1st year
Gudbranson @385 days sent back to juniors 1st year
Huberdeau. @ 110 days Signed after 1st training camp after going back to juniors only reason he didn't make team was he was too small. Was one of better players in that training camp.
Barkov @15 days was going to be on the team year 1

It could be as simple as one side saying 'lets enjoy the summer and talk business in the fall' or that bonus thing.

Think max signed players is 50. Can have rights to I don't know how many though.

What is the max contract in terms of cap hit and bonuses in total he can sign? Just curious.

All you need to know about ELCs via capgeek
From what I understand of it they break down to 925k base and up to 2.85mil in bonuses

Not sure if it's been posted yet, but


Hayes is having his arbitration hearing next week in Toronto, they were unable to come to an agreement in time. The article also says Ekblad is expected to be signed before September comes around, but it is Harvey.

The article was posted on Friday...the arbitration hearing is tomorrow, just to clarify.

he can't possibly be asking for more than Pirri. perhaps term is an issue and tallon wants him long term, so hayes demands arbitration to get a 1 or 2 year deal...?

Edit: Meant he couldn't ask for more than pirri, not hayes...

I think he was talking about Hayes, rookies can't make more than 925k base salary.


For Hayes, I think the Panthers are asking 800k, he wants 1.2 million, they'll settle for 1 million.

That would seriously screw up my over/under...

Ekblad I don't see having any contract issues, he has no need to rock the boat. One thing you don't want to get labelled with before you've even played a game in the show is 'problem player' ala ROR / Timmy, and Ekblad has a pretty sterling rep so far.
