    Meier's doesn't buy out any years of Free Agency like the others getting 8 and above do. Big difference.

    And not sure I'd call 36 points last year and 66 this year is "very similar" to those getting 8 and above. Here are the players from similar draft class (14-15-16) making 8 and above:

    McDavid ($12.5M): 3 straight 100+ point seasons - Center
    Matthews ($11.6M): 40G/69P as a rookie followed by 63 (62GP) and 73 (68GP) seasons - Center.
    Eichel: ($10M): 56, 57 (61 GP), 64 (67 GP), 82 point seasons - Center
    Draisaitl ($8.5M): 51, 77, 70, 105P seasons - Winger / Center
    Aho ($8.45M): 49, 65 and 83 point seasons - Center

    That's the complete list. Which of those do you think are very similar players to Meier?

    Not that I saw, I saw a bunch of names including his, but without any specific attention to his, which is justified cause his is the best in the league.

    Ok, you said "are getting 8 and above" which is what confused me.

    That said, I still don't see it most of the guys getting over 8 (Marner, Rantanen, Point, Tkachuk) as being "very similar" to Meier. And again, those ask prices probably include buying out some UFA years.

    Fair enough. I just see Timo as being a guy with a potential for 40 goals and 6 mil for 4 years is a steal for that

    I think you could come up with better "best contract" candidates than one based on the hypothetical contracts of his comparables. Not saying Meier's contract isn't good value but it's better than his comparables only in your head and not, at least yet, in reality. You also do realize Meier's contract structure practically walks him straight into UFA?

    It guarantees him a 1 year deal worth $10 mill if he opts to hit ufa at 27.

    There’s a reason why rfas have not signed. No one wants to be the next guy on this type of list.

    IMO if you believe that you can take your game up another level don’t sign for term. Or if you do don’t give up more than a year of ufa. Mackinnon would be entering his final rfa year this coming season but he signed away 3 additional years.

    Barkov at 5.9 million for 3 more years is up there.

    What will be the next hot take? I predict within a year he'll call Spurgeon the best defenseman in the NHL

    By the guy who claims Ondrej Kase is a top 10 player.

    He likely believes that.

    Why would you start a thread like this?

    If you want to make a thread saying that Sean Couturier is the best player in the NHL, do that.

    If you want to make a thread about the best contracts in the NHL, do that.

    What you did here is just lazy.

    MackInnon, Barkov and Klingberg I think are the top 3.

    Rielly for the Leafs, by far but MacK league wide. Actually, any deal signed 2-3 years ago looks f***ing phenomenal compared to what the kids are asking for now.

    And if he isn't for whatever reason that's a nice 11mil QO at the end for him.

    Now you're even more cringe considering you think Andrej Kase is one of the 10 best hockey players in the world and Couts is THE best player. I know you're a young kid and I assume you'll grow out of it but I just wish we didn't all have to watch this "I'm the smartest kid in the room" phase.
