I would say 13 of the 30 listed are worth their contract.

11.5 for a 105 pt pace is a little low for me. if he was putting up like 110-115 i'd be good with it (bit picky here)
same for kane, his pace is like ten points under what i think he'd be worth
however i wouldnt be mad if either player was signed for that much on my team

If Panarin is worth, then Marner is worth his as well. I think Panarin is worth more like 10 even though he could have gotten more than he did. Marner is worth like 9. Panarin would be worth it if he was scoring like he did in the 2019-20 season

Chabot might be worth his contract too and Price if he was healthy since it looked like he was having a bounce back

Other than that I agree with you.

Kane’s point production isnt bad for a non-playoff team plus if you look at the last 5 years he's probably top 5 point production still

Interesting that a lot of the defenseman who aren't worth their contracts never were, namely the ones that were signed recently but they still are you enough to make some changes. Norris Karlsson and the like at 11.5 is still crazy though. Toews on the other hand at least only has a year left and he did bring 3 cups to the city. Tavares doesn't get enough credit and he won't until he produces more than pt per game or they start having playoff success that is because of him.

I'm assuming here that we are ignoring the tax factor and actual pay

Gibson hasn't been worth his cap hit since 2018.
