Team Explanation
These are star players that aren't "bad contracts," just players whose salary is higher than what they're worth. It's tough finding defensemen because there really aren't any.

I find it funny how some people act like these aren't "bad contracts" but Jack Johnson's is. Yes, these players are much better than Jack Johnson, but he's not making a crazy amount of money for the NHL.

Either Bob isn't a star, or he isn't overpaid. He is definitely overpaid though, so, yo, no
I ain't a foe
To Babcock
Unless Ben Harpur plays a whole lot
He shouldn't play mo'
Than zero minutes
Because he
Should sit
Yo!

9.5 million for 80 points, it's a pretty fair contract.

This lineup might be overpaid but it definitely wins the cup.

Well, no. You could argue that he took a discount maybe, but a paycut? No. He doubled his contract. I agree that he shouldn’t be on this list, and we should give panarin a year to live up to it before tossing him on these lists.

I also want to see how doughty bounces back before I think of him as overpaid. If he goes back to what he’s been the rest of his career, well worth it.

Lundqvist is overpaid now... but back when he first signed the deal he was the best goalie in the league.

Pay cut, discount whatever... they took less money than was offered in order to go where they are tavares is living up to his deal, panarin hasn't got a chance

I wouldn't say "far" from overpaid, but I do regret adding him.

I thought about adding him, but since he thrived this year in the regular season and post-season, I left him out.
