Tyler Myers. Captain of Team Earth. Mark it.
Are you mixing you're Sci-Fi? The "mindbenders" from Talos IV (Star Trek, TOS) are capable of controlling human thoughts from great distances, even light years away. There is evidence their telepathic powers have periodically influenced people the NHL. Just a selection of examples:
1. The on-ice officials and Gary Bettman during the 1999 SCF game 6 skate-in-crease "no goal" incident.
2. Larry Quinn's "we have an elite defense".
3. Garth Snow and Mike Milbury (for years).
4. Perhaps also the poster above, "Myers will be out of the league in 3 years."

Serious question:
Better value extensions - Myers in BUF or Schenn in TO?
Personally, I think both are great. Taking my Sabre fan hat off, tough to decide. (not that it matters, or is even relevant to compare the contracts for their respective clubs) But what say you?

And, back on topic: Hoo-Yeah at the #57 extension!!!

This may have been answered before but i'm too lazy to read 5+ pages @ midnight, does Tyler have a NTC when the extension kicks in? Are NTC written into contracts by the team or is it based on age or anything? I'm really ignorant on that subject of hockey.

He has a NMC and a modified NTC, both of which can kick in at the beginning of the 2016-17 season at earliest (as long as he plays in at least 40 games every season).
This is because NMC/NTC's are not in effect until a player has enough experience that they would be eligible to become a UFA (seven years or age 27).
Usually there are gentlemen's agreements before they are in effect, but those can be broken (see Carter and Richards).

When exactly they take effect has not been reported.

Just the same, when I first saw his lofty new contract numbers, I thought there must have been a typo. Myers, who has one year remaining on his first NHL contract, last week signed a seven-year extension worth $38.5 million U.S. with the Sabres, meaning he's secure until 2019.

As former tennis star turned broadcaster John McEnroe might have said: "Surely you can't be serious!"

The way I see it, Myers has performed pretty much the way the Sabres had hoped he would after being taken with the 12th overall selection in the 2008 draft. He went back to junior for a year and followed that up with two generally strong seasons in Buffalo.
Quote:
Because of his size and skill, Myers could very well become one of the league's dominating defencemen. Could. Yet, at the tender age of 21, he has already become a new Bank of America based on his future potential. As a point of reference, Hall of Fame defenceman Denis Potvin did dominate in the NHL at age 21 in 1974, joining the New York Islanders following five seasons with the Ottawa 67's, and his salary at the time was $80,000.

Sure, that was then and this is now. All the more power to Myers and his agents for striking it rich. As for new Sabres owner Terry Pegula, he could probably run for mayor of Buffalo and win. By signing Myers to the lengthy deal, the Sabres have avoided the chance that he could be poached by a rival team with an offer sheet next summer and kept him from becoming an unrestricted free agent until he's 29.

Pegula's NHL colleagues, however, won't portray him in such a glowing light. The Myers contract has forced their pockets . er, hands. It has now become the standard for all of the top defencemen selected in the 2008 draft, whose contracts expire at the end of the 2011-12 season
Quote:
Pegula's spending spree - he also signed defenceman Christian Erhoff and Ville Leino to colossal contracts in the summer - can't be sitting all that comfortably with commissioner Gary Bettman.

Only a year away from the expiration of the collective agreement between the league and the players' association, the free spending won't help Bettman's argument for concessions in a new deal. There are now suggestions that a new deal could include provisions for rich teams to spend over the salary cap if they pay a luxury tax to support low-budget teams, as is the case in Major League Baseball.

Seriously. What a biased article. "Generally strong".

Warren with a lot of boo-hoo there. Myers has been the better all-around player than either Subban or Karlsson to date. Painting him with a broad brush that he had "deep valleys" and long stretchs of poor play shows that he may have seen him early in the year last year when he was in fact slumping or he is simply following the press herd who kept saying he was not playing well in passing (I'm looking at you, Micheal "TSN" Peca) when he actually was playing at least to his previous year's production if not better as the season concluded.

Maybe if Murray hadn't signed Gonchar to a three-year deal for $5.5M annually that he is clearly not worth, the Sens wouldn't be worried about Karlsson's number. Heck, Karlsson's outplayed Gonchar most days -- and by a wide margin. Should Myers deal be the benchmark solely or should that idiocy to the slowing Russian turnover machine be a more immediate factor in the Sens payroll scheme?

Clearly Pegula is to blame for any of the Sens' future cap troubles.
