Not sure how anyone says this is a bad contract. He was good in Chicago, Quennville just didnt like him. He was good overseas. He's stable in Washington. Nothing amongst his past performances and past stats indicates he was playing above his abilities. He just wasn't given a shot. 4 years at a minuscule 2.5 million in a cap era where potential is rewarded with a huge contract is nothing. Cap continues to increase by about 5% every year. Looking at this contract in those terms, your looking at 2.375 next season, 2.257 and 2.143 million in comparison to equivalency of this current cap. Thats peanuts, even for a 4-5 dman. You got guys like Forbort, Pysyk, Rutta, Benning, K.Miller, Gunnarsson, Nutivaara, Hunwick, Beaulieu, Schlemko, Zadorov, Hutton, Lovejoy among others making almost the same or more. Id be pretty confident to say he's in this range of players. Theres a ton of D that aren't better than Kempny making more $.
Identifying a couple cap fans here as all caps fans is ignorant. Your just as bad as the select few that state their opinions boldly.
