You'd have to be on drugs to think this was a good idea. What are you doing hextal?????

Term was the most important part of the negotiation here, not aav


Letang was probably asking for tons of money for short term, so Hextall signed him for less money long term to convince him.

Obviously he's screwing over his former team's biggest rival.

I understand they wanted to reduce the AAV by adding term... but he should have gotten 4 years max...

My first reaction to this was, “this is insane! He’s 35 years old. Do they really think he’s going to keep playing at that level until he’s 41?” But the more I think about it, the more reasons I’m coming up with why it’s not that crazy. First, let’s look at the player:

• He’s still playing at an elite level, and he’s been one of the most consistent defensemen in the league over the last 12 years when he’s healthy, which he actually has been most of the time over the last 5 seasons.
• If he had gone to free agency, he would have been the best defenseman available. Klingberg is the only one who’s close.
• Based on his recent body of work and recent contracts signed by other defensemen, he should be worth at least $9M AAV for at least the coming season.

Now, from the team’s perspective:

• As others have pointed out, their win window is based on Sidney Crosby’s contract and age, and also on how much longer Malkin (assuming he comes back) and Letang can continue their high standard of play. Cap space during that win window is much more valuable than beyond that, because that’s when they’ll want to have flexibility to add a player or two to put them over the top. If they can shift cap space from the next two or three years to beyond that – like getting a $9M player for a $6M cap hit – that’s a good thing.
• This is similar to a 3-year contract with the cost and cap hit spread out over 6 years – like those deferred payment deals that they used to give before they made them illegal – except that they actually have him locked up for 6 years, so if he turns out to be the next Zdeno Chara, that’s an unexpected bonus for the team.

This makes me think that it may have been the team that wanted the 6-year term, not the player. No matter how you slice it or spread it out, I still think it’s too much – for that term I wouldn’t have gone over $5M AAV – but it’s not total insanity.

This signing looks really bad on paper but is still understandable. Letang asked for more money than Pens could afford to keep Malkin. Thus it was decided to pay him less money in longer time period. No matter this is until he turns 41. At this point he may be already retired from hockey. Most important are the first three years of his contract when he is going to get more money than the cap hit. Pens are speculants.

That's like Vlasic bad.


Disagree. He's physically better and way much better offensively than Vlasic. I didn't like the term as well, but it's better than Vlasic's for sure. The AAV is good. Less than he deserves. So, the contract is not that bad. We can re-sign Malkin for something like 5M, 5.5M for the next 3 or 4 years and then Pens will have a good cap space to sign or re-sign other players. I can live with that.
