Worst Contracts In the League (Past/Present)

Because of all this contract talk, I've wondered what the worst contracts in the league are. Even ones in the past that were terrible, I don't believe I can recall any since I've never really looked it up or paid attention to it. Any great ones to talk about?

Also I'll just mention Briere for fun.

I see you Bobby Holik and raise you Chris Gratton, Alexei Yashin, and Rick DiPietro.

Looking back at the Chris Gratton situation, they could have had our 4 first round picks from 98 to 01, which would have given them Simon Gagne, how ironic.

As opposed to Drury, Gomez and Redden who are all overpaid by $4,000,000?

Rolston's is pretty bad for his production. Redden's is by far the worst in the NHL right now and since the lockout. Drury's is pretty horrendous as well.

Boogard's contract is just a joke. What a waste of cap space.

If Tim Thomas continues to falter you'd have to consider his as one of the worst.

Jeff Finger, Roman Hamrlik, Brian Rolston, and Ryan Smyth just because of his cap hit.

Wade redden will probably go down as one of the worst contracts in history. I think it's unfair to put the ricky D in the same boat as that, considering the fact that if he didn't get injured then it would still be a very, very good contract for a number 1 goaltender

Anytime Jody Shelley is mentioned, it's safe to assume it is a joke.
