    Saying Couturier is the best in the league is as stupid as Kase> McDavid and Gourde > Marner.

    He doesn't actually watch hockey, he literally just looks at charts to form an opinion. It's sad because he used to be a pretty decent poster with normal opinions but somewhere along the way learned about some obscure advanced stats and forgot everything he'd ever known about hockey.

    Some of them are closer to expiration by now, and some of them buy out more UFA years than others, but here is a list of some players that make under $5M that seem to me to be a pretty good deal to me, just based on cap hit. I'm sure I missed a few.

    Elias Lindholm: $4.85M
    Faulk: $4.83M
    Trocheck: $4.75M
    Kadri: $4.5M
    Couturier: $4.33
    Klingberg: $4.25
    Arvidsson: $4.25
    Dumoulin: $4.1
    Pesce: $4.025
    Dadonov: $4.0M
    Josi: $4.0M
    M. Murray: $3.75M
    Gallagher: $3.75M
    Ekholm: $3.75M

    It's the last year of the contract so most likely about to change, but Roman Josi had an AAV of just 4 Mio over the last six years.

    edit: I'm too old and slow

    Mack, Sheifele, Klingberg are the gold, silver and bronze, in my opinion.

    Trocheck, Rielly, Josi, Hedman are a few that come to mind after that.

    Marchand giving you 100pts for $6.125M until 24/25?

    Doesn't get much better than that

    Just my two cents but I think Duchene was signed to a pretty decent deal. Seeing as some teams probably would even tossed an extra 1-2 mill at him. 8x8 is a pretty good contract for a 1b centre.

    He scored 100 points once in a 10 year career and now you expect him to do it every year until he's 37 years old?

    Ekholm's deal is crazy value, just like Couturier.

    Is this a thread about pretty decent deals or the best contracts in the league? Signing a guy to an 8x8 who just broke 60 points for the first time in 5 years doesn't really qualify.

    *sigh*

    39G/85pts

    34G/85pts in 68games (103pt pace)

    36G/100pts

    All for $6.125M per year.

    Would need to drop off an absolute cliff for this to not be a top 5 contract with everything hes already done. Those are $10M+/year numbers

    Hertl for 5.6
    Labanc for 1
    Meier for 6 when very similar players are getting 8 and above

    I'm not saying it's a bad contract, it's universally excepted that it's an amazing contract. All I'm disputing is the idea that he's going to score 100 points a year until he's 37 just because he did it once.

    This. Was just about to say, how no one had mentioned Josi’s name yet is absolutely nuts. A #1 dman for $4M is insane value and the best you’ll get. Though this contract has one year left on it and he’ll be due more likely double than what he’s making now.

    Amazing to think that you guys have two #1D under 8M$ combined.

    The most underrated defensemen in the NHL; Dumba and Spurgeon were getting less than 12 million a year. Dumba at 6, Spurgeon a shade under 5.2 million. Both are capable of top pairing and providing great offense and defense.

    He had been mentioned 3 times already by that point.

    Draisaitl at 8.5 for 50 goals 56 assists is pretty good, surely one of the best

    Mika Zibanejad @ 5.3 million

    I submit that getting Oscar Klefbom at 4.16 million for 4 more seasons was the smartest thing Chiarelli ever did.
