interesting timing with his name in trade circles. Extend and trade for Karlsson?

Have to think either its a sign and trade or someone big is going out if they're really pushing for EK.

Capfriendly has it at $9.5M. That's quite the steal, given what players are signing for now.

@reporterchris
Nikita Kucherov's eight-year extension with #TBLightning carries a $9.5M AAV.

10 AAV is my guess.

Good deal for Kucherov, a lot of coin but he is worth it.
Tampa have to move that Callahan contract before next season. Going to be hard to keep their guys together with that hit on the books.

Compared to other high end signings, this seems pretty reasonable.

Tampa going all in this year? Cap situation looking a bit tough in 19/20, and Point will be getting a big raise to boot.

I can't believe we have Gaudreau at 6.75. He really should be in the 8-9 range.

We got lucky and had Johnny/Monys contract go up before McDingus and band of merry dorks up north broke the cap with these massive contracts.

They are not trading Kucherov. There are other ways they can dump salary to make it work.

He is one of the best contracts in the NHL for sure.

Interesting tax bit from a former accountant for hockey players. Taxes are owed on amounts earned while players are on the road in other countries/states. In theory, state tax shouldn't be as big an advantage as thought but signing bonuses muddy those waters.

Yup, the turning point was Draisaitl, and then it was 'legitimized' by McDavid.

Prior to them everyone was trying to get contracts done in the $6M to $7.5M range. Then Draisaitl gets $8.5M and there was a whole paradigm shift.

The Flames are in fantastic shape now. Our entire top 6 this year (assuming $5m for Lindholm) will be: $30.1M. Yes, Tkachuk will bump it up next year, but it will still be great.

And our top 4 D this year will be $18-20M (depending on whether Hanifin signs a bridge or long-term)

Over the next year or two, Brouwer, Frolik and Stone ($16.3M) will be replaced by kids, and the cost of our goaltending probably goes down next year!

Every time I see someone sign for $8 to $10M, I smile.

There are also tax deferral strategies that substantially reduce the differences between cities.

We should also not forget that Gaudreau was ineligible for arbitration and also was RFA offer sheet-exhempt when he signed his deal. It was really a fantastic situation for the Flames.
