bryz is gonna be one pretty penny

Maybe the best thing about this is the timing, right before the draft so Bryz may be used as a chip to move up.

That correct. The NHL doesn't want salaries to be spread around so teams try to keep them somewhat quiet, but the NHLPA will spill the beans because they want team B to know what team A paid for player X.


Just a stupid NHL thing.

There's nothing to really say is there, as Giggy can't have bonuses or what not right now. So it's got to be flat cash. Unless it's weighted (I hope it's front loaded if it is, would help to be handing out less cash when signing Getz and Perry next summer.)

Eh, I think he'll be used for immediate help. Burke will trade down to take Gillies.

Great deal, this will sure increase the value of Bryz. I am glad he didn't test the market, he has earned his raise.

Salary is $5.5-mil for two years, $6-mil for one year, $7-mil for one year. Cap hit is $6-mil for four years.

"Every player in this league would want to play on this team. You'd be crazy to want to leave." . . . Jiggy.

Y'know the most shocking part of this deal is the fact that it has a NTC clause. I thought Burke was opposed to giving those out?

Well I secretly wanted to see Giggy gone and Bryz as the number one (I have a ***** for Bryz!!!). The numbers look good though. Hope we can get something good for Bryz, and send him to a team in the east that we'll play twice every three years where he can start.

Personally I think Bryz projects as a career backup.

Right, but I think he's more of a Shtalenkov than a starter.

Ok well I'm gonna post this in two different threads, just because I think it fits in both.

Tomorrow is Bryz's 27th bday and they guy may get delt. That's always funny when it happens.

For a contract with a cap hit of $6m, you could have something like a base of $4m which the player would get no matter whatm and then have bonuses which are recived after hitting tagets, likst 5 shutouts, 30 goals, 50 points and stuff like that. To be able to have a contract like that you have to be one of three kinds of plater: Old (35+), on a your first rookie contract in the NHL or have been out injured for a long time the past season. As Giggy donesn't fit into any of the groups, he must be getting a flat $6m a year on average. So the only details of the contract to find out are what he's getting paid each season.

The $6m could be something like $7.5m, $6.5m, $5.5m, $4.5m. Which would then mean that we'll be paying out more next year, but have a cap hit of less than that what we're paying. As the deal goes on, we'll be paying less in cast, but still have a cap hit of the $6m. As this team normally works with a real cash budget of about $42 on players, we've always for extra cap room, so the fact we'd be spending less that hit cap hit would help this team out. As we'd have more cash later on to sign the players who are leaving cheap older contract, like Perry and Getzlaf who will be looking for a raise of about $2.5m each.

I was hoping he would only get a 1 year contract since he only plays great on years his contract ends on. All others years he is only an average goaltender.

It may just be a coincidence that his two best seasons he has ever played were years his contract ended on, but it is something I do not like seeing in a player.
