If he can keep up the rugged style AND continually put up 40+ pts(with 20 or more being goals) for the next 6 years .. then yes, totally worth it, if not, then no.

He was an RFA without arbitration rights.
But yet this screams of desperation like he was a UFA.

How can GM's still not identify replacement level wingers.
Do you know how many guys would look good with Ovy and Kuznetsov.

It reminds me of the sedins who made scrubs look like 1st line talents.

Definitely an overpayment. I’d say 4-6 years around $4 million may have more been the financial sweet spot

How many years of UFA did this buy?

Even with a couple years of UFa, that seems like an overpayment. Honestly, wouldn't 3.8 per be a price for him? Or am I under-valuing the rest of him?

Pat Maroon salary looks absolutely amazing compared to this.

What????? Are you kidding me? Worst contract all time. All of a sudden Lucic is considered a bargain sniper

Ummmm... If he jumps to 20 goals a season, cuts out the stupid penalties, and continues to hit WITHOUT getting suspended....he'd be worth 4.5. Right now he's a 3.5 million player that probobly could have been at at 4 million.

Tom Wilson 1- Caps 0
Take an average of 100,000 per point and maybe you get to 3-3.5 a year
They will regret this one real soon

This makes me feel a lot better with JT Miller's contract.

Wow, worse then the Clarkson contract!
BUT he could be the Knuble of the team, if so, it'll pay off.

The deal right now is bad but it can turn good depending how Wilson develops. The contract goes until Wilson is 30. If he continues to improve then 5 mill could be a steal. If not then they are over paying for a mediocre player.

The term is fine ... but the money.....
But don't you think the money could have been better spent on this guy..

Johansson, 26, has two years remaining on a three-year, $13.75 million contract he signed July 20, according to CapFriendly.com. The contract has an average annual value of $4.58 million.



Johansson set NHL career highs in goals (24), points (58) and plus/minus (plus-25) in 82 games for the Capitals last season. He had eight points (two goals, six assists) in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

You guys will probably have to pay the Cup tax next summer....except it’s Toronto and everyone will take a discount to remain a part of the team and become the greatest cup winning Dynasty of all time.
