And to think, the original deal was supposed to be a million higher.

Still, McDavid is a special player. He's worth every penny.

A generational talent for sure. Still I bet he doesn't win a cup in Edmonton.

I dont know TH...he went from an ELC to that mega deal...as an RFA...all the other big earners....toews, kane, Crosby and Malkin all had reasonably priced second contracts in the $6 mil range...and have all won multiple championships....this is a bad deal.

The days of the small 2nd contract are over. And free agency happens younger. I think you try to lock these guys up as long as you can.

I dont agree....you oen a player's rights until 27 minimum...no reason to not take advantage of that first RFA deal.

Sure...McJesus is a generational talent, but this is not a good contract for the Oil.

McDavid will be eligible for UFA status at 26. And his value will continue to increase. Arbitration also plays a big role.
Look around the league. Team's are foregoing the bridge deal when they have a sure thing.

Heck, I thought MB was smart to give Subban a bridge deal. Then he won the Norris and got a massive contract with a NMC that, possibly, contributed to the pressure to trade him.

Paying RFA's like UFA's is folly, IMO


especially when the max deal is now only 8 years...you cannot lock a guy up for life on his first RFA deal, anyways.

plus, I don,t think players can go UFA until 27?

27 or 7 years in the NHL. Whichever comes first.

I double-checked just in case I was wrong. IT's whichever happens first. There aren't many 18 year-olds in the league, so it rarely matters.
