TOP 25 WORST CONTRACTS in FNHL (May 2013)
« on: May 05, 2013, 03:00:02 PM »
Thought it'd be a good idea to build off the 2011-12 TOP 25 Worst Contracts in FNHL and post a 2012-13 update.

At the end of Franchise NHL's 3rd year, we've still got some contracts floating around that seem over inflated especially in light of the 2013-14 salary cap coming down to $64.3m from the 2011-12 value of $70.3m.

Here's a list of the 25 worst player contracts i've noticed in FNHL as we prep rosters for the off-season + pending 2013 Free Agency period which starts August 11th:

  • :TBL: RW - David Jones, $6.3m (2014-2015) - a good Amnesty Buy Out candidate
  • :CLG: D - Jay Bouwmeester, $6.7m (2013-2014) - paid Top 5 $$ but doesn't perform like one
  • :NAS: LW - Marcus Folingo, $6.0m (2015-16) - 2012 FA bidding war target
  • :CLG: C - Artem Anisimov, $6.0m (2014-2015) - paid like a "Sedin"
  • :NYR: C - Mikeal Backlund, $4.7m (2014-2015) - still hasn't done anything in NHL
  • :ANA: D - Luca Sbisa, $4.2m (2014-2015) - hasn't produced much
  • :NYR: D - Zybnek Michalek, $4.0m (2014-2015) - needs a contract "re-set"
  • :CHI-NHL: D - Nick Schultz, $3.5m (2013-2014) - over-priced 2012 FA signing
  • :PHI-NHL: D - Ron Hainsey, $4.5m (2012-2013) - at least his deal is ending
  • :STL-NHL: D - Erik Johnson, $4.5m (2014-2015) - failing to live up to his potential
  • :EDM: D - Tom Gilbert, $4.0m (2013-2014) - worth $$ in real NHL but not fantasy
  • :BUF-NHL: D - Steve Montador, $3.7m (2013-2014) - didn't play this season
  • :DET-NHL: RW - Ryan Smyth, $4.0m (2013-2014) - ready for retirement in fantasy
  • :NYI: C - Tuomo Ruutu, $5.4m (2014-2015) - injured so much in 2012-13
  • :TBL: LW - Ryan Malone, $4.5m (2014-2015) - barely on the ice to earn contract
  • :NYR: LW - Evander Kane, $9.0m (2016-2017) - only because NYR allowed him to slip into FA only to resign him at a 35% premium
  • :BUF-NHL: LW - Dany Heatley, $7.5m (2013-2014) - lost his mojo a couple of yrs ago
  • :CLS: C - Brooks Laich, $5.3m (2014-2015) - declining production due to injuries + age
  • :CAR-NHL: RW - Devin Setoguchi, $5.8m (2014-2015) - another yr, another underwhelming season
  • :CLG: LW - Sergei Kostitsyn, $5.7m (2014-2015) - NHL team rebuilding + stresses defence
  • :MON-NHL: C - Michael Cammalleri, $6.0m (2013-2014) - not same "Cammi" as past + now his NHL team is rebuilding
  • :NAS: C - Paul Statsny, $6.6m (2014-2015) - hasn't lively up to the value of his contract
  • :TOR-NHL: LW - Bobby Ryan, $8.4m (2014-2015) - type of contract that hand-cuffs a team
  • :MON-NHL: LW - Matt Moulson, $8.0m (2015-2016) - a bit over-priced but productive
  • :FLO: D - Alex Pietrangelo, $6.8m (2015-2016) - ordinary yr + didn't deserve stud contract

* Goalies were not included on this list as they have significant value in this goalie starved league so the likes of :WIN: Bryzgalov $13.7m, :DAL-NHL: Crawford $12.0m, :MIN-NHL: Anderson $10.0m, :NAS: Montoya $6.7m,  :VAN: Mason $5.0m, :VAN: Garon $5.0m, :NAS: Dekanich $4.7m will only be listed in this footnote.

lots of guys on this list that could use an Amnesty Buy Out.

there are also a number of bad contracts for defensemen.
i've learned that sometimes it's best to let the player walk to Free Agency instead of handing them a big extension.

#8 Nick Schultz was a bad contract we took on to do a deal with :ANA:

We just cut his head off and dumped the body into the ravine past the train tracks. The body's still warm. LOL

after Fleury's performance in the last 2 games,  Vok should be the starter.  I love and hate Fleury.  We have a Rhinna /Chris Brown thing going on.

I am fine with the Tuomo Ruutu contract.  He may have been injured but when he did play he has my 2nd best points per game player on the team and for much less money

Ruutu is like Havlat. Studs when they play.
Or should I say when they're healthy enough to play.
