No... Just No.

All those D men u posted don't put up points lol.
Don't even mention Brodie in the same sentence as Tyler Myers.
Brodie is the best in his own end on the Leaf's and their PK would suck without him.
Risto dose not desrve this contract and he dose not even produce offensively

Chart from last season but still

One of the best GM's in the league hits a home run here. Ristolainen is one of the best defensemen of this generation and to lock him up at this price is larceny.

I assume everyone who said "yes" to this being a good deal, hates the flyers and love that they are now saddled with this contract. That makes more sense to me than there being 8 people who pay enough attention to the NHL to come to cap friendly, log in, and vote on a poll but not enough attention to realize this is a horrible deal.

It's not because you cant find the sense that there's none:

Risto, 27 yo, 258 points in 591 games, 5x5M
Gardiner, 28 yo, 245 points in 551 games, 4x4M
Myers, 29 yo, 265 points in 635 games, 5x6M
Brodie, 30 yo, 266 points in 634 games, 4x5M

Dont worry I knew the Leafs fans were gonna come at me for saying Brodie isn't reliable defensively. Where are the advanced stats guys when you need them...


Ummmm.. the advanced stats are the reason people realize Brodie is good defensively

I wish you folks would explain these stats when you quote them. Not all of us are advanced analytics geeks. I assume the 1% means that 99% of the defensemen in the league are better than him, but in what respect? I don’t know what WAR means. Is it what they’re paying him to do?

Different players have different roles. I haven’t seen him play much but at first glance he looks like an offensive defenseman who’s no longer putting up offensive numbers. However, I don’t think that’s what the Flyers wanted him for. When he was putting up big numbers in Buffalo, he was getting more than half of his points on the power play. He’s been getting very little power play time with Philadelphia. Instead, Fletcher and Yeo talk about his physical play, and he’s been putting up decent numbers of hits and blocks, so it looks like they’re getting exactly what they wanted out of him. That being said, physicality, hits and blocks alone don’t normally get you $5.1M AAV. He’s taken a bit of a pay cut since his last contract, but they’re paying him like he’s still putting up 40-point seasons despite apparently having no intention of using him in that role. That doesn’t make sense.

In summary, I wish I knew what a 1% WAR means, but even without that I can see that this is an overpay.

This signing is just to save face from wasting the 14th overall pick and a 2nd round pick to get him in the first place.


I voted no.


You're right. This happens a lot, a GM tries to justify his original bad trade by resigning the player.....tooa bad contract

Doing literally nothing (like Hextall was accused of) is better than doing stuff like this.
