I wonder how this gets compared to Suzuki's contract. Everyone said Suzuki's was awful and they are very comparable

It's a lot of money for a contract right after an ELC, but the Devils needed this, it will be a team friendly deal in the near future. Good deal for the Devils.

Now trade for Quinn Hughes

If he keeps developing the way he is, by the 2-3 year this is a steal.

Emotional brain: wow what an overpay
Rational brain: that will be a steal by year 2
Rangers fan/cynical brain: UFA status at 29 y/o = major free agency splash in 2030 when he signs elsewhere 😈

This is a good deal on paper but let's see how it plays out

Also, is Kakko worth 8mil? *dodges all Rangers fans*

Not 100% sold on Hughes being worth this much. Its a massive vote of confidence for him from the team.

15 million locked up in two 1C potential players is great. Hope it pays off for them; but I can't help but wonder if the Devils could've gotten the price on this a bit lower.

Thinking this is another win for Fitzgerald, term is perfect and AAV is very reasonable.

He's going to explode for 100+ points in the next year or two and he'll be drastically underpaid. The Devils are basically doing what the Coyotes did with their young players (signing them to long term extensions hoping that they're under market value during their window) except these guys are actually worth it.

maybe right now, but Jack has higher upside.

But the uncertainty on each contract is still reflected in the votes.

The numbers don't tell the story. Anyone who's watched him skate and make plays with the puck knows he's elite. Hughes is not dependent on high scoring wingers to provide offense. Just look at how well Kuokanen and Sharangovich were playing in the second half of last season and compare that to what little they've done this season with Hughes injured. It's night and day. This kid is a rising superstar. All due respect to Suzuki, Pettersson, and others, Hughes creates offense at an elite level. The numbers will come. A+ signing.

People who complained about Suzuki's contract because "we only player 100 games and proved nothing yet" better be choking on this one.

55 NHL career games. 64M. Jeez.

It’s an overpay now but will be a great deal in a few years. Also signs this on the same day he returns to the lineup.
