If so inclined, the Rangers could amnesty Gaborik or Richards and sign a big name free agent either this year or next year. 

 

Not really.  They have to re-sign Hagelin, Stepan, and McDonagh this off-season.  Even if each of them only get the 2 year contract treatment, I expect that to cost them $8M/season.  The year after that, most of the team is either UFA or RFA.  They have to be banking on a $9M contract for Lundqvist, $6M for Calalhan, etc.  I also think the Gaborik contract is easily traded if they're so inclined.

 

Amazingly Richards makes $57M in the first 6 years of his contract actually, so it's even worse.

I think it's a fair deal for Getzlaf, but considering other teams could only offer 7 year deals I do think it's uncertain someone would have beaten that offer in UFA and the Ducks maybe could have waited. A 7 year deal worth 66M is a AAV of ~9.5, which would be difficult for another team to handle. Maybe Getzlaf prefers a 7 year deal worth $63M for an AAV of 9.0 M. Someone would have offered that I bet at least but it's not entirely clear which contract is better. It only takes one legitimate offer though...

 

Getzlaf would be 35 at the end of a 7 year contract.  Is it unfair to assume that he would get 5M a year coming off that?  If injuries don't do him in he still should be a solid 2nd line center.

Maybe Getzlaf even would have been better off taking a 6 year / 9-10M per deal. That way he could get one last Prongeresque contract before the 35+ threshold.

Speaking of the offseason, a UFA I would love to see on this team would be Nik Antropov, big bodied guy that can fill the 3rd line RW, would play our system perfectly.

This is what contracts look like without gimmicks.   Not surprising at all.   Maybe they overpaid him a little, and could have played chicken with him, but they could lose both of them by playing chicken.

Holy sh!t.. So happy we didn't sign Kovy to this type of money..

 

Huh?   This is less than what Kovy's being paid.    They just can't cheat to lower the cap hit by $2M+

Those 35+ contracts no longer exist in the new CBA...



Huge HUGE cap hit!

 

This will be the new norm...   players will grab the same cash they did... but now the caps will more closely reflect their salary.   ie, you won't get a Kovy for a 6.6mm cap hit.
