Hopefully Connor and Laine use this as their comparable awesome face

But seriously, another good contract for Tampa. It's why I still believe that team comparables are still really important in contract negotiations - if you hold everyone to a certain standard, teammates are willing to buy in.

As another example, just because I am more familiar with the roster, Winnipeg gets players to sign with zero signing bonuses because that's the precedent they've set within the team.

This is a great deal for Tampa. It's hard to say what a new bridge should have looked like for this level of RFA, this is higher than Kucherov's bridge was in terms of cap hit percentage, but still feels very low compared to where people thought.

With so many RFAs seemingly pushing for full market value on longer term deals, I think going short may create the greatest amount of cap efficiency if you can still get value deals. Point will easily out produce a $6.75M cap hit for 3 years, and if you need to sign him at essentially his full value in 3 years, he's likely still worth it. This way Tampa will get massive value out of point for 6 years (3 years ELC and 3 years Bridge). It even buys them a little space where they are tightest (next two years).

I am not sure how JB got this done after basically opening the vault for Vasilevsky earlier this summer, but this deal is a pretty big win given that Tampa couldn't really afford long term, even if it was a decent discount.

Pastranak and Mackinnon are signed for similar AAV with more term left, so I wouldn't go that far, but it is a great contract and probably the best way to deal with RFAs pushing for near UFA type values on longer term deals.

He also overpaid Matthews. Why is everyone criticizing Marner only and not Matthews? Weird approach

This is an amazing deal for the Lightning. To think Brayden Point is making less than Kevin Hayes
Hey Chuck- Are you paying attention? You need to stop listening to Homer and Clark.... You don't have to give every mediocre player in their late 20s 7 million a year for 700 years.

I'm pretty sure he just signed the most lucrative 3-year bridge deal in league history! I'm not sure I would call this "a steal" for Tampa. But at least they can move forward now.

No doubt. Dubas is proving he's not very good at negotiating.

It's a 3 year bridge deal. If this were a 6-7 year deal the $$ would've been substantially higher.
