why just 3 years?

107 posts in this topic

Can someone please explain why they would only agree to a 3 year deal? and not longer? Corey is hitting his prime and will obviously still be in his prime 3 years from now, don't you guys think that we should've done a long term deal? Like 5-6 years? Quick got a 10 year deal (i'm not in favour of that long of a deal, having learned from the Luongo experience) Carey price is apparently set to sign for 6-7 years as per Bob Mckenzie

Schneider in my books is just as good as those guys. I hope 3 years from now he doesn't become too expensive that we are unable to re-sign him.

Because as of now he hasn't proven he is worth of the big bucks. Why would he sign for longer than 3 years, if after starting for 3 years he proves he can be an elite goalie, and command a lot higher salary?

Its also safe for us incase for some reason he doesnt handle being a starter well.

where did you get 12 years from? I'm not talking about Lui, and I also clearly stated I'm not in favour of 10+ year contracts. I said 5-6 years

An honest answer would be that they didn't sign him longer because had they agreed on a 5-6 year term, Schneider's cap hit would have to increase.

For example, sign someone at 3 years @ 5m. Or sign them for 6 years @ 35m. Just an example.

Roberto Luongo's 12 year contract is only talked negatively because of Cory Schneider. His stats prove that he is a worth 5.3 mil/year for 12 years. The people that think he's overrated are bandwagoners. They've only seen Cory Schneider and his performance in the finals last year compared to Luongo. And wonder why he's paid 5.3 mil/year compared to Schneider's contract. If Cory Schneider hadn't emerged as a starting goalie, would Luongo be talked about so negatively? No. A 92.8% save percentage in 2011 and a 92.0 save percentage in 2012 gives no reason why Luongo is overrated and has a bad contract.

Becuase they realized the contract they gave Luongo was setting him up for failure from the beginning and they don't want to make that mistake again

3~4 years for a goalie seems to be the ideal length of contracts. You just don't know if they can maintain their stats year in year out, and even if they do, you may have someone who's younger that can be just as effective (ie Schneider on Luongo).

Quick was sensational, but so was Luongo before he got his 12 year contract. Too bad when Lu was awesome, the team wasn't as good as it is now.

What lesson?

I don't see any problems with Roberto Luongo's 12 year contract?
