Canucks D-Man Overpaid?

101 posts in this topic

Canucks 8 D-Man

Alex Edler- 5 Million

Jason Garrison- 4.6 Million

Kevin Bieska- 4.6 Million

Dan Hamhuis- 4.5 Million

Keith Ballard-4.2 Million

Andrew Alberts-1,225,000 Million

Chris Tanev- 900,000

Cam Barker- 700,000 (48 Games)

Im Certain the Canucks pay there d man the most in the league. But Bieska, Ballard and maybe Garrison arent worth that much at all.

Bieska is between a 2.5 to 3.5 million

Ballard- 2 to 3 Million

Garrison- 3 to 4 Million

So is our D- Man Overpaid?

Solution is to trade lu and ballard for a key 2nd line forward and prospects/Picks

Lu and Ballard cap= is just over 9.5 Million in Cap.

Edler is still at 3.25 for this season.

Garrison hit the jackpot after 1 good season. Hopefully he is not a one hit wonder.

Bieksa is a bit overpaid and Ballard is definitely overpaid

Pretty sure Hamhuis, Edler and maybe Garrison would've all gotten $6M+ on the open market...

Averaging around 3.5-4M per year for each defenseman isn't bad considering what they would actually get from other teams in the NHL.

Hamhuis will be able to net at least 5M from another team. Edler definitely 6M+. Bieksa around 5M+. Garrison would've definitely notched at least 5.5M+ from other teams in the offseason. And Ballard was already signed at 4.2M so we couldn't do anything about that. But he would at least get 3M. Alberts was already at 1.25M from Carolina so we had no control over it but he would fetch close to 1M.

Are our defensemen overpaid? Not really. Aside from maybe a couple, we're getting a great deal from all of our defensemen salary wise and they chose to turn down more money to get a chance at winning the Cup. Tanev will definitely demand minimum 1-1.5M when he has to re-sign.

Hamhuis has sucked this year outside of that banger goal. Our TOP 4 not looking as good on the ice as on paper so far.

hopefully its just early game rust

Bieksa at 2.5-3.5?

Do you have any grasp at all of player value?

Hamhuis and Edler are at steals of a contract.

Bieksa, Garrison and Ballard are overpaid

I guess it evens out.

If they were all playing good and we were winning games you wouldn't be complaining about how much they are getting paid

They could use some more moneyballs on that backend, not sure anyone is overpaid but they sure have a lot of 4-5mil guys.

Edler is overpaid. To be the highest paid defenceman on the team and make mistakes like he did tonight........Just glad we have him signed, so that we can trade him come the off season if he remains this inconsistent.

**Ryan Suter's paycheck hits you for 2000000, critical damage of 10000000**

**Shea Weber's paycheck hits you for 1000000, critical damage of 13000000**

**Olson22 has been killed by reality check**

So we win 1 game 5-0 and our team is awesome. We don't need to add anything.

Next game we lose 4-1, and suddenly every player sucks and is overpaid.

Can't say I'm surprised though. The bottom line is, their powerplay converted twice and ours couldn't produce anything on 7 attempts.

You can't win games if you don't win the special teams battles. This game was more than winable. The D wasn't teh problem tonight, it was a team loss from top to bottom.
