Is this a bad contract? absolutely. But San Jose also, intentionally I believe, inflated the price off all other free agent wingers for every other team with this deal. Guys like JVR, Perron, Neal, Maroon, Grabner can all expect a bigger paycheck now. Even guys like Nylander, Zucker, Stone, Miller as RFAs will be vying for more lucrative deals.
Although, with the Sharks rumored to be "all in" on Tavares. Not sure if San Jose can still be in the running with their current cap situation, also with them still having to resign Hertl and Tierney.
