Kadri makes less and scores almost as many goals as Wilson does points.

I would love to have him on my team, I’m not even upset about the six-year term. However he’s way overpaid. I wouldn’t have given him more than 4.1 million a year at the absolute most on a 6 year term

He had 15 points in 21 playoff games this year, I was saying if he can replicate that and his play from late in the regular season then the deal is okay. Not good, but okay


Its way too much to bank on him increasing his production. I get that he creates more space for Ovechkin but wow being paid like a top 6 forward with bottom 6 production is a hell of tough sell. What a gamble lol... Or maybe this is what it will take to keep him out of the penalty box lol

Thirty one year old Komarov had 7 goals 12 assists about half of Wilson, and makes 3m a year, so Wilson's 5.1m looks reasonable. No, it seems like a big overpay.

Tom Wilson’s biggest hit thrown is now to the Capitals salary cap

I would have bet that he wouldn't have signed for over 4 mil. Seems like a lot right now, but if he can play well with Ovi and Kuz, it might not be the biggest waste.

I had Wilson signing for 5 years at 4.5 per. That said, this caught me completely off guard as I thought my valuation would be high, seeing everybody else expecting him to make 4 or 3.5 per. I think he is a super valuable part of this team, and if salary cap keeps going up, this isn't a complete disaster, but like many have said, don't start stacking bad contracts on top of each other like DET CHI LAK. This is an overpay, not massive, but could hurt them if he never reaches the level he was at in the playoffs again

All he had to do was not f*ck up. That’s it. He didn’t have to get him for a steal of a contract or anything. All he had to do was not f*ck up. How does this happen? What comparable did Wilson pull for this? Viktor Arvidsson makes about $1M less for almost twice the production. Now Tom Wilson makes slightly less than TJ Oshie does, and more than guys like Arvidsson, Marchessault, etc.

The Capitals didn’t choke in the playoffs, so they have to choke the offseason. Jeez. Unbelievable.

Wow. I am...speechless. This is up there with the worst signings of the off-season (Jack Johnson, Antoine Roussel, Jay Beagle, Ian Cole, Leo Komarov, Ryan McDonagh, and [even though this hurts as a Blues fan] Ryan Reaves).

Seriously though. WOW.

Brayden Schenn is getting paid less. Yes, Schenn did play 4 more games than Wilson last season, but he still had twice as many points.

Not counting Wilson's honestly impressive playoff performance here, BTW. Just the regular season.

Wilson is goon, got overpayed, who does this contract remind you of? Dustin Brown, of course but a bit less money. Now at the top of worst contracts in the nhl. Goons/decent role players shouldn't be getting more than 4 million. Rebuild is coming and your stuck with Wilson until the very end.

compared to the 5.5m that komarov/Martin make for the isles, then Wilson's deal makes sense
