    Tricky for some of the Canes as they could slide from slightly overpaid to OK or even underpaid depending on how they’re playing. I think this is a reasonable starting point though. A player here or there could be moved but I’d say other than Gardiner there’s no one too firmly in the overpaid camp.

    CAROLINA HURRICANES

    Underpaid

    Svech - ELC
    Necas - ELC
    Bean - ELC
    Ned
    TT
    Slavin
    Pesce
    Hamilton
    Trochek
    Fleury
    Brind’Amour

    Overpaid
    Gardiner
    Skjei (slightly)
    Reimer (slightly)
    Staal (slightly)
    Nino (slightly)
    Martinook (slightly)
    Semin buyout

    OK
    Aho
    Foegele
    Fast

    To be fair, Malkin and Letang are underpaid if compared to other similar players in the league.

    Zucker and Pettersson are not overpaid either if you compare them to similar players.

    I'd say Tanev is overpaid, but the problem, just like with Matheson, is mostly the term.

    Cody Ceci is not underpaid, he is overperforming his contract AT THE MOMENT, but I would not pay him more because of his history.

    Rest I agree with, even though I am not sure I would call Guentzel underpaid.

    My thoughts on Guentzel are more like what you said about Malkin and Letang.

    I mean Malkin hasn't really consistently being as great as he used to be. So I wouldn't really call it underpaid at this point, but certainly not bad at all. Letang pretty much the same.

    Zucker and Pettersson have been a little underwhelming this year, so overpaid a bit for me. But like I said, they don't have any overly bad contracts.

    I thought the length of Tanev's contract was strange at first. I think he's a good player, but I don't think he's underpaid or overpaid.

    Matheson has been pretty good, but the contract is still a little too much for my liking, but again, not too bad.

    Ceci is making so little that I think it could be argued he could've got paid a bit more and it wouldn't be bad still.

    Overpaid:

    Frans Nielsen
    Danny DeKeyser

    OK:

    Dylan Larkin (When he actually gets a decent team and can get back to PPG, underpaid)
    Anthony Mantha (He'd be an $8M player if he wasn't lazy)
    Thomas Greiss
    Vladislav Namestnikov
    Troy Stecher
    Christian Djoos

    Underpaid:

    Filip Hronek (ELC)

    Seems about right. I’d slide Oleksiak into the underpaid section he should get 3.5M this offseason

    I took that amount and subtracted $100k for every odd man rush he has singlehandedly given up in the past 3-4 games. :sarcasm:

    Jk I agree

    Ehlers has a case for being underpaid considering what he brings to team.

    Acciari is a solid player and valuable due to his versatility but at 1.7 mill he's hardly underpaid. I'd consider Huberdeau for the grossly underpaid category, though his streakiness might keep him out of it.
    Good list overall.

    This is all taking into account only their AAV and play for this year. Klefbom would likely be underpaid as well

    Perreault, his contract ends this season.

    OK: Anyone not in the overpaid or underpaid category.

    Underpaid:
    Scheifele
    Helle
    Ehlers
    Pionk
    Lowry
    Copp

    Connor is a tough one. He is definitely not over paid but a argument can be made that he is underpaid for the amount of point he produces but his defensive game is so bad that I can not put in the underpaid category.

    Honestly I would lean towards putting McDavid as underpaid. I know he’s the highest paid player in the league, but look what he’s doing. He could’ve gotten more for sure.

    Would you guys consider McDavid underpaid or fair?

    It’s so weird how this works, compared to Marner, Eichel, Karlsson I would say he is underpaid.

    But it could also be the case of other players being overpaid and McDavid being paid fairly.

    IMO it would only make sense for the value of the best players in the game to be paid close to the max contract, anything less than that is underpaid.
