At 12.5M AAV, so a little less than people were expecting. Still the highest paid player in the league.

Makes the Price deal look like a steal. Makes me wonder what McDavid's salary will be when he is a UFA at 28.

$21 million a year on 2 players. A generational talent and a franchise player mind you. The NHLPA must be licking their chops right now.

I don't mind this shift if indeed it is a shift. Better to overpay superstars in their prime (and really, I'm not sure you CAN overpay a guy like McDavid) than overpay a bunch of grinders or great players on the decline.

Yeah, when the Pens & Blackhawks gave huge contracts to a few key guys, I thought they were hog-tying themselves & they'd be screwed. It's pretty clear why I'm not a GM. :lol:
