<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Chiller</b></div><div>Marner, Mitchell 7 $10,200,000 - overpaid by about 1Mil AAV, but not the worst... so i give this grade a eh
Mikheyev, Ilya 4 $1,200,000 - crazy, we have not seen him play, and any depth player you sign 1.5Mil and under, 1-2 years tops... you can literally find them in the bargin bin every free agency
Marchment, Mason 4 $1,000,000 - crazy term yet again. 4 Mil for an unproven guy who is a depth piece at best. Bargain bin hunting if he plays over his worth
Gauthier, Frédérik 5 $1,000,000 - crazy even worse that Marchment. 4th line centers grow on tree's. We got Spezza for 700K for a year. Bargain hunt. Every 100K of savings matters from a cap Team
Dermott, Travis 5 $3,000,000 - Great COntract, I like it... keeps him locked up long term as he breaks out
Harpur, Ben 4 $1,000,000 - this guy is literally the worst. the exact opposite of what Dubas wants his Defence to be. Throw this $$$ and Term in the trash and send him to the marlies
Kivihalme, Teemu 4 $1,000,000 - WHO??? WHY the term FFS
Bracco, Jeremy 4 $1,000,000 - eh, he hasnt proven anything yet. And Again why the term. Trade him while he is a mystery box and worth more than if he tried in the NHL and failed.
Muzzin, Jake 6 $5,500,000 - Not bad signing. I would rather sign Barrie and we have Dermott and Sandin almost ready
van Riemsdyk, Trevor 6 $3,000,000 - big overpay for a 3rd pair. Also the term... jeeeeze, thats what screws teams over the most. Dubas needs flexibility and this is a big overpay.</div></div>
This .......This is the kind of insight and responses I love ..... information !!! I hope you comment often on my stuff.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Chiller</b></div><div>It is weirdly not that much more with the sales tax. It not as significant. It is something, but not crazy.
And comparables, yes 2009- Kane he signed his 2nd deal at 11%. % of cap s hould be similar over the years. The trend and they have very similar point totals. Also, if you look at Brayden Point and Ratanen, you have "experts" who say Mitch is worth 11.5M saying Brayden and Ratanen are only worth 8.5ish. Meanwhile Ratanen had a better points, Brayden plays center and was 4 points shy of Marner. Doesnt really make much sense that Mitch is worth more.
Also, before this year, Mitch and Nylander were trending the same. Mitch had a great year, some credit is given to JT, there is proof he makes great players better. Also in a league where the objective is to score goals, Matthews is on another level compared to most if not all other people in the NHL at 5v5. He is also a center, a more valuable position.</div></div>
Exactly, if im point or Rantaanen id wait to see what marner signs for and ask for the exact same. They are arguably better players and deserve for money based off their playoff success. But if im Dubas I hope those two players sign for reasonable numbers before July 1 and offer marner a comparable deal, the marner camp will have little leverage justifying that he is worth millions more then those two players.
