Worst contracts in the NHL

Created by: Smjth
Team: 2023-24 Custom Team
Initial Creation Date: Jul. 26, 2023
Published: Jul. 26, 2023
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
I don't think Tavares or Horvat are bad players, they are just overpaid. Tavares gets a light nomination because he only has 2 seasons left. Horvat will just be starting his deal, and that' only going to continue to look worse as the years go by

Tavares doesn't deserve to be here TBH... He's not an 11 mill player, but he still does produce a ppg... Would think that other contracts are worse, like Tyler Myers, Patrick Laine etc. before Tavares, should have OEL as an HM as well

Laine at a near point a game pace for 8.7M at 24 isn't one of the worst in the league. You can't defend the Tavares deal and then say the Laine contract belongs

I'd say the production he gave the Jackets with the injuries they had this season would nearly make him one of the best in the league

I'm saying Laine belongs more than Tavares... Just bc Laine also is only playing 50 games every season whereas Tavares plays either all 82 or close to it every year

Yeah, if he caps as a point a game player for the Jackets, he's definitely a tad overpaid

Why tf is Faksa on here? That isn't a bad contract for an elite shutdown center. Guy is also a menace on the PK.

Yeah I agree, i don't think that contract will age poorly. But as of right now, it isn't good

I think if he was on a more competitive team last year he would have made it look like a steal.

Could still be moved or who knows maybe he rebounds in Philly
