TOP 25 WORST CONTRACTS in FNHL

TOP 25 WORST PLAYER CONTRACT IN FRANCHISE NHL

after spending a week reviewing rosters and calculating cap space in preparation for Free Agency + the upcoming season, i noticed plenty of bad player contracts.

here's a list of the 25 worst player contracts i've noticed in FNHL as we get underway with the 2012 Free Agency period.

  • :ANA: G - Rick DiPietro, $4.5m (2017-2018) - long and limited production from Glass Rick
  • :ANA: D - Dustin Byfuglien, $9.0m (2015-2016) - difficult to move, but young enough to make it worthwhile... maybe
  • :ANA: RW - Nicolay Zherdev, $5.0m (2013-2014) - big cap hit for a KHL player
  • :CAR-NHL: RW - Devin Setoguchi, $5.8m (2014-2015) - not really earning his contract value
  • :CHI-NHL: LW - Lauri Korpikoski, $5.5m (2014-2015) - his name is "Lauri" for cryin' out loud!
  • :DAL-NHL: G - Corey Crawford, $12.0m (2015-2016) - a rare position but an example of last season's FA period overspending on goalies
  • :DET-NHL: C - Logan Couture, $9.3m (2014-2015) - a huge contract to takes up too much cap space and handcuffed the team last season
  • :DET-NHL: LW - Andrew Ladd, $7.0m (2014-2015) - over-priced FA acquisition
  • :EDM: D - Paul Martin, $5.0m (2013-2014) - never turned out to be the second coming of Scott Niedermayer
  • :FLO: LW - Nikolai Kulemin, $4.9m (2014-2015) - errrr, i misjudged his extension cost  :doh:
  • :LA: LW - Blake Comeau, $5.5m (2014-2015) - a 2011 FA that was paid for his potential
  • :MIN-NHL: G - Craig Anderson, $10.0m (2015-2016) - another example of over-paying in a goalie starved league
  • :MON-NHL: LW - Matt Moulson, $8.0m (2015-2016) - he would have to place in the top ten in forward scoring to deserve that contract
  • :MON-NHL: RW - Troy Brouwer, $6.5m (2014-2015) - right wings are rare but not that rare
  • :NAS: G - Mark Dekanich, $4.7m (2013-2014) - projected as a potential starter or at least backup in Columbus last season, this player never panned out in 2011-12... maybe things will be different with the Jets?
  • :NAS: G - Al Montoya, $6.7m (2013-2014) - another severely over-priced back-up goalie that once had a hot-streak in the NHL
  • :NYI: C - Vincent Lecavalier, $7.7m (2017-2018) - lengthy deal for a veteran on the back-9 of his career
  • :NYI: RW - David Backes, $8.0m (2015-2016) - good player but likely the result of frenzied FA bidding war
  • :NYR: C - Mikeal Backlund, $4.7m (2014-2015) - not sure he's done anything to deserve this contract
  • :NYR: D - Zybnek Michalek, $4.0m (2014-2015) - expectations were high when he signed with the Pens but didn't end up producing offensively
  • :PIT-NHL: RW - Zach Parise, $9.0m (2015-2016) - just a big fat salary that sucks cap space and one few teams can take on in a potential trade
  • :PHO: C - Cody Hodgson, $5.5m (2014-2015) - over-paid based on prospect potential
  • :TBL: RW - David Jones, $6.3m (2014-2015) - severely over-paid based on half a season's hot streak that came back in 2010-11
  • :VAN: G - Chris Mason, $5.0m (2013-2014) - more goalie over-spending
  • :WIN: G - Ilya Bryzgalov, $13.7m (2015-2016) - finally the biggest contract floating around in Franchise NHL ... how does reket23 feel about this guy really!?!

there you go... a fun list or a warning to all teams during Free Agency ... you decide.  :judge:
can't wait to see who'll end up on the 2013-14 Worst Contracts list. :toast:

These goalie contracts are crazy, it almost makes me glad I don't have a starting goalie.

I will say that I don't mind paying Parise 9m; at least its not for the next 13 years.

the list wasn't ranked otherwise Ilya Bryzgalov's contract as well as Corey Crawford's deal with be #1 and #2.  :judge:

actually, last season's worst team :OTT: didn't make the list which was interesting. neither did the 3rd worst team, :NJD: ... something to think about.

so far i've seen reasonable contracts handed out to defensemen after 8 days of free agency. it's a good sign. :thumbsup:

definitely a lot less cap for teams to go shoppin' with.

i wonder if ppl would be ready for a roll-back if it were to occur in 2013-14 pending actual NHL/NHLPA CBA contract talks.

7.  :DET-NHL: C - Logan Couture, $9.3m (2014-2015) - a huge contract to takes up too much cap space and handcuffed the team last season[/li][/list]

I have to say this Couture contract is from another planet. Even if the guy produces 200 points a season you could sign 3 average players for 2.0m a piece to produce 80 points each for a total of 240 points.
9.3m for 1 player versus
6.0m for 3 players
-3.0m for 2 extra players :thumbsup:
This is hypothetical but it's grounded in some facts that I've seen on Fantrax and via several team rosters I've looked at for trade purposes.
