<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>no problem with it at all. There is serious inflation in salaries. That deal will be nothing in 2 years when the TV contract and an expansion team are entered into the league.
Furthermore, he was brought in to hit people. Which he does well. That lets them shed a player like JJ, who was the teams leading hitter last year.
I'd much rather have Tanev than JJ. which is what it equates to.</div></div>

I don't want to come off as rude or snarky at all. But using Johnson's contract to justify the argument that Tanev's contract is okay really is a bad comparable. That Johnson contract was recognized to be awful the moment it was signed and has been proven to be awful all year by Johnson's lackluster play.

Paying a bottom 6 forward that has little offensive upside $21M over the course of 6(!!!) years isn't a smart move. The only good 6 year contract a bottom 6 forward has signed in recent memory off the top of my head was Calle Jarnkrok with the Preds 3 or 4 years ago, and that was $2M per and he plays center and was younger. Tanev isn't old by any means. But committing that money and term to a guy you don't see putting up 40+ points a year isn't the best idea. If it was a 1-2 year deal, then whatever. Not a bad deal. If it was a $2M AAV contract, also not a bad deal. But GMJR didn't need to pay that type of premium for Tanev.

The caps got Panik for 4 years at $2.75M and he's expected to produce a lot of offense. They got Hathaway (a guy who will likely be playing the same role as Tanev and potentially do it just as well) for $1.5M AAV for 4 years. This deal the pens just signed with Tanev may turn out to look just like the Johnson deal signed last year; not good at all.
