    For sure. Their teams are loving those long term contracts right now.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Matthews asks for the max. I'll be interested to see if McDavid's contract acts as a type of salary cap. Doubt it.

    If the cap does go to 82 million this year ....McDavid signed when cap was still 73 million? that alone means a bump....

    and the Oiler GM said this at the time of the signing June 5 2017 :"It easily could have been a lot higher in value and shorter in term," Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli said.

    I'm actually still surprised that didn't happen. $13m over 5 years. They get one UFA year.

    Not sure why McDavid committed like that to an organization that hasn't shown anything.

    He'll still be only 29 when this deal is up. Can't imagine what the Cap will be at in 8 years probably $90m - $95m. That's $18m-$19m for salary.
