Well, I figured he'd get quite a raise from his current deal, but this is beyond even my expectations. Given the new caps, 8M is a great deal of money to commit to a single player.

I also wonder if this puts the nail in the coffin for Perry...

wow lots of money. It is looking like Perry wanted to become a free agent no matter what dont blame him for wanting to look. Someone out there (T.O.) is going to give him 9 mill+. I love the way Perry plays but it is going to be hard to justifie keeping both when you are a team that gets money out of revenue sharing instead of paying in to it. They have a lot of young talent coming up on forward and could trade Ryan, but I dont think it will matter what they do Perry is going to free agency.

WTF? I really thought the days of 8+ million were behind us? Especially on an 8 year deal. You could almost justify it if it were for 4 years, but 8?

I can't comment any further right now, i'm that shocked......

Too much money (and too long a term), especially if the cap goes down to $64 million next season. Or the same or less the following season.

For teams spending $35-$40 million on their top 6-7 players, what's left over for your remaining players? Hard to find good 2nd or 3rd line forwards (or #3 or #4 defensemen), for less than $2 million a season.

For this season, Anaheim has $33 million tied up with their top seven players, and they're currently spending $56 million for players' salaries. Sure, they can spend more than their current budget, but do they have revenues to support additional expenditures on players?

But maybe league revenues will go up, and the cap will stay near $70 million, and maybe Anaheim will grow their revenues to support higher player expenditures? And maybe their ownership doesn't care about making money?

What was the lockout about again?

If most or all teams are spending 35-40M on their top 6-7 players, then what is left is what is left - and it will be easy to find 2nd/3rd line forwards for less than 2M because that is all that will be available for them. Don't kid yourself, most players will not turn down 2M per season to play a game, if that is all there is.

The lockout initially achieved one thing - a widening of the rich/poor gap in the NHL. Elite players are getting the same money, and non-elite players will be forced to fight for the scraps that remain. It will take a lot of years for things to even out, if at all. If teams find success with this model (20% of players taking up 60% of cap pot, and fill in the rest with ~2M players), then it may never even out.

I think the most successful teams over the next 5-10 years will be the one's who can convince their stars or potential stars to sign at a "hometown discount". That way there's more left over for some better pieces. If Anaheim signs Perry to a comparable deal then they reall will struggle to be able to keep some of their other pieces, especially if kids like Palmieri, Etem, etc end up comanding good dollars in 3-5 years.
