If we can get the last 3 years of Mika's production for at least half of the deal then it's a win IMO

Classic NHL contract these days, have to push out the term to get the AAV manageable. Teams are willing to deal with the asset management of offloading a contract like this in year 7 or 8 if they can compete for years 1-6.

Pretty much what I expected from this deal. And I figure even if the last couple seasons end up an overpay when he hits mid-30s, he's been super underpaid the last few seasons so it's a wash for me. (Also the cap should be going up some by then hopefully!)

Great AAV but I mean that term is scary - they will not have fun contractually in the future

A lot of fans were worried Mika was going to get ~10M, but when Barkov signed the other day for 10 it was a good sign Mika would come significantly under. This is a great AAV for a guy who's been one of the best GPG players the past few years. He just has to stay healthy

Absolute steal for the Rangers to get Zib locked up like this for such a great price. He is a top 10 center in the league and 8.5 is a superb deal.

Good deal.

Guess that means that they won’t be trying to trade for Eichel.

At that price (68M), my guess is he wont have a NTC, making him a valuable trading chip for an Eichel deal.

If I'm wrong and he has one, it would mean NYC is out of the race.

I didn't think this off season could get any worse for the Rangers but here we are. AAV on its own is bad enough, at least one million too high, but that term makes this deal outright bad for the Rangers. They will experience a big cap crunch in just a year or two without getting themselves a very long window of contention in return.

Great deal! Term is a little scary but he could’ve gotten 9 on the open market. Guess he’s our captain.

Imagine being the NYR front office and thinking Zibanejad is better than Eichel

AAV is is fair for his skill..... not a fan of that term though, going to be even more interesting when the rest of the details are out.

Good value now but risky depending on when Zibanejad starts to decline.

zib's talent pales in comparison to barkov's level of skill

he's also older

Voted yes, but it's kind of a plug your nose deal on first assessment IMO.
* GMs are bonkers this last three months; that's a given.
* The Money - seems to fit the other market prices out there.
* The Term - a 6 or 7yr deal be nicer obviously. Have to see the M-NTC/NMC info; if any.
... likely a Kreider 2.0 near the end of it.
