If Washington didn't win the cup he probably would've got much less.

Hilarious Signing!!! Tom Wilson just got 5.1 plus million dollars PER SEASON folks! THEN on top of that they gave him a term of 6 YEARS at that amount!!! HA! They looked so good getting rid of the ridiculous salary of Brooks Doorpik but then they turn around and put themselves in a hole once again with good old Mr. Wilson. Hey, I'm a Penguins fan so I love this signing because he's in the box more than half the time, he gets suspended and he NOW costs a ton of money so thanks Washington for helping us and all the other Metro teams out for the future. You would think these GM's would learn to not blatantly overpay for guys like this but nope, not all do.

The worst part about this is next season when we have to pay Vrana, Djoos, Burakovsky and Stephenson with zero money to do it. We’re going to be forced into trading Niskanen or something.

Or just trade holtby maybe Bura if he doesn’t play better. Wilson should be making 4 million this extra million isn’t as bad as you make it seem. They’d still need $$$ for these guys

I’d rather not run the risk that Samsonov is ready for 50 high level starts next year. I’d rather trust Bowey to be ready for a top-four role

Bowey and Orlov looked good together imo. Nisk should bring a mcd like return?

Not that much. I’d take a first round pick and a decent prospect for him easy.

Man, Jack Johnson's contract is amazing compared to Wilson's. As for the worst 3rd pairing of the league. We'll see...

The fact is your team has now the worst contract in terms of cost and benefits of the nhl. Enjoy it! Lol

Based off what? Jack Johnson was a health scratch during the playoffs.

Tom Wilson was a first line player on the best line in the playoffs which his team won the cup.

Worst contract? It’s far from the worst. He got over paid by 1 million. Jack Johnson got 6 years at 30-31 Wilson is 24. Hahahaha but solid point and complete accurate you really know your stuff

Jack Johnson played for TORTS last season so I means nothing as Torts ruins players as he has done in every team he has coached. Jack will have great chance to learn more from Gonchar who makes D players better every time. Environment is crucial for true success and Jack is very pleased to be out of Columbus. AND Jack Johnson got 5 years Mr. Genius. I don't care how old Tom Wilson is or not he is Drastically overpaid.

Yeah Seth Jones and dubois look terrible and torts is ruining their career.

He also made the decision to get jones who finished top 3 in Norris voting? But yeah your knowledge in him and how he ruins players is great.

Kinda like the pens and cole right?

And gonchar is good but a lump of **** is just a lump of ****. No matter what you mold it into it will just be ****

Wilson should have made 4 million. Drastically over paid would be 8 million not 5 million. But again mr genius Tom Wilson playing top line minutes has shown he can handle it. I can repost numbers but what’s the point you’ll just come back with the generic he’s a goon 4th lines thing so why beat the dead horse right?

Facts : Wilson plays amazing on the top line. Averaged .75ppg and won a cup.

He is “overpaid” by 1 million. But so is Johnson haglin eichel ....etc. I used some penguins just so you can follow what I’m saying easier.

Point being last year everyone laughed and said kuzy and orlov were overpaid and those same people aren’t saying anything..........

This is a signing that’s better judged after next season assuming caps are sober and actually training

Oh Geez. Your Caps FINALLY have 1 Cup so drink as much as you can bud because our 5 cups provide plenty for us to sip on and being that we win back to back multiple times not far drips from our cups. You said Wilson and the Word Amazing in the same sentence so obviously you are still drinking from the Cup this year. Bottoms up because after we trounce your team this year that just what you'll be, bottoms up.
