Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie
BUF and Jeff Skinner, who is a pending UFA, are closing in on an eight-year extension. It’s expected to have an AAV of $9M or thereabouts.


Buffalo Sabres @BuffaloSabres
IT’S DONE!

We have signed forward Jeff Skinner to an eight-year contract with an average annual value of $9 million:

This is not going to be a good contract. He's a good player but not a 9 million dollar player

Why is Buffalo so adamant on killing the cap for everyone, first they overpay Eichel and now this ridiculous contract.

The 8 year term on this is really not good.

I like Skinner a lot, but yikes. Too much term and dough. Already feels like a contract they'll want to move in a few years.

I can't believe he secured that much AAV at max term after one good season, preceded by some pretty shaky ones. Wow, that's one hell of an agent.

Buffalo has sucked for so long and has trouble attracting top tier free agents so I think they got scared and just wanted to secure a star who wanted to play there before he had a chance to receive other offers.

Skinner is great, but 8 years is insane. The cost of keeping a high end UFA of his age though.

Theoretically a Sabres rebuild may take, say, five years. By the time they're ready to make hay they'll be saddled with an albatross contract on a declined asset. Might make it harder to add the final pieces.

This will be considered a bad contract sooner rather than later. He'll probably be the whipping boy as early as next year. If those is one of those buyout proof NMC contracts it will be a total fail.

Is he a 40, 50, or 60 point player?
What ever he is, he's definitely not a $9 million/year player.
