It's clearly a high cap hit, but look at the others.
1. Erik Karlsson - $11,500,000 - never worth it
2. Drew Doughty - $11,000,000 - not worth it.
3. Zach Werenski - $9,583,333
4. Seth Jones - $9,500,000 - he's not as good.
5. Roman Josi - $9,059,000 - signed when 30, runs till he's 38...ouch.
T-6. Dougie Hamilton - $9,000,000 Already 28, runs till he's 34. That's not really idea.
T-6. Cale Makar - $9,000,000 - young Dman, probably the only real comparable here.
I honestly think the only one even comparable on this list is Makar. They won't be paying Zack into his 30s.
Would I like to see 2 more years on this deal. Sure would. But his odds of getting another pay day at 32 are a lot less than at 30. Which is where the player is at.
There has to be a give and take here. CBJ is gonna get his best years, and the cap hit is high, but he's a good defenseman.
Truth is if you want to go around passing blame on this, look at Dubas.
These TOR fans on here whining about Reilly. Well your **** GM was the one handing out huge deals to RFAs to start this mess. If you want to complain look in the mirror.
Dubas has been the worst GM in NHL history. He was a noobie fool who got took by players and agents, his lack of skill and brains has hurt every GM and team in the league.
