The best of the worst contracts

Team Explanation
The goal here is to determine the best of the worst contracts. I’ll list what I think is each teams worst contract (I’m open to hearing arguments for replacements), and then it goes tournament style. Again, you’re picking the better of the two contracts between left wing and right wing. The best moves on for the next round. No, Drew Doughty isn’t on there. I think he bounces back once LA is competitive again.

I’m well aware of how stupid this is.

Marner, Benn, Stastny, and Gardiner's contracts arent even that bad

Yes Benn is overpaid a bit, but I think its worth it with all the off ice things he provides

im only going to comment one thing Price's contract isn't bad it's just very long and expensive but it would be probably between him and Weber as our bad contracts because we don't really have any at least right now but they could be bad later

Don’t think someone’s contract is that bad? Then pick them you dummies! Read the description.


I never said the contract isn’t bad...

His contract is not bad, it's just very long and expensive. Very long and expensive literally makes it a bad contract.

I was gonna day MEV should be here. Also JT should be here instead of Marner IMO. More potential for it to go south just due to his age.

I agree. Erik Karlsson vs Vlasic, I'd rather take Karlsson's. EK65 at least still puts up pretty good offensive numbers from the backend even though he has health concerns and potential defensive struggles. If Vlasic isn't a strong defender, then he's just a liability. Rather take my chances with EK65 than Vlasic

I also agree about Marner vs Tavares. In this scenario, both players are highly productive but as you mentioned, I'll take the younger player between the two

Hayes was effective this year. I don’t think that contract ages. I just don’t see how Vlasics deal is worse than Karlsson. The way he’s trending...man, that looks bad.

Stastny gets a bye because this silly league has 31 teams.

I hear ya about EK65, but I don't think Vlasic is trending any better. I just believe you're bound to get more production from EK65 than Vlasic

As much as I would like neals salary to be different I hate the thought of removing from the team so I’d say he’s the poster boy for this.
