I’m torn on this. On one hand, I love the AAV, but on the other hand, I hate the term

Traded to Montreal for unknown it seems.


Probs FC if we look at recent trends or if MTL needs to make the cap work a bit maybe a cheaper guy like Byron goes the other way

those last few years are going to hurt....but this means Calgary is all in for the next few seasons, not a Flames or Kadri fan- but this is worth it. bold move.

I heard it could be Drouin on LTIR and then they trade away one of Hoffman or Byron

I guess the price to move salary were too high for Lou..

I vote No because of the lack of information.

If it's front loaded and there isn't huge bonuses (aka easier buyout) then it would be a W.

But as is, IMO Calgary is signing excellents players in their prime that will start to decline. The back end of those contracts will stink, probably including Weegar who should be next (8x6.25M$?).


The Flames window is now so it doesn't matter

I’m I the only one who thinks signing UFA veterans to massive contracts with their best years behind them is a really bad idea?

The cap hit looks fine... but I don't know about that term. That would make me uneasy if I were a flames fan

I don't think this is a good contract due to term, but credit where it's due, the Flames lost two 100pt Hart vote wingers and came out the other side a better team on paper than last year.

"Oh, this contract will hurt Flames in 3-4 years". SO WHAT!? And fortunately for the Calgary fans (I'm not), their GM doesn't care too. The team is on "win now mode". So, it doesn't matter what will happen with the contract in 4 years. It's a very good sign RIGHT NOW. This is everything that Calgary must care about. 100% with this sign. Specially, because the Islanders lose him as well.

Didn't see this coming!

We all knew that Kadri would get a contract that's way too long. It will almost certainly be an albatross by the end, but this is what you have to do to get players like him.

What's up with all these 7 and 8 year deals? Good deal for the first half of the contract, but I smell a buyout down the road


Calgary might be rebuilding by the time the contract starts to look ugly. At least it will keep them above the cap floor I guess

Yup. I just realized that Kadri turns 32 right at the beginning of the season... that 7 year term looks painful.

Good AAV for how he played last season, but that term is definitely horrible as others have been saying.

This is a great signing for Calgary IMO. It won't look good in year 4+, but Calgary is trying to win now and Kadri's cap hit is very cheap for what he brings. Even if he regresses to 60 PT's and the 2nd line, it's still fair value. Makes sense for Calgary's plans.

Win now mode for Calgary. Ideal term would have been 5 years. The AAV is good imo but will likely be a poor contract in the last year or two. Can't wait to see Kadri against McDavid multiple times a year, that will be fun

Shouldn’t Kadri be the girl in the red ?

Flames trying to replicate the Sharks/Predators method of building teams. Sign aging guys to huge deals and be stuck barely making the playoffs / missing the playoffs.

In 4 years Kadri will be the most popular buyout/cap dump player on this site
