[SIGNING] Cale Makar signs 6 year contract


Recommended Posts

Hughes can’t ask or get 9M now.  So 8-8.5 if he wants same term.

 

if he’s smart he should ask for 3x7M$ and sign a 9-10M$ after once the cap start moving back up and if he continue if progression.  I think that would be better for us too

Its only a matter of time before he starts asking to be sent to NJ.  Id give it 3 years.

We are overestimating Rathbone just like we overestimated Rafferty and Chatfield.

Fans on this board are desperate to believe Quinn is a legit #1. They will convince themselves of anything.  

 

 

Why are you even here? Get banned from the HFBoards?

There is a lot more than a half a million dollar difference between Hughes and Makar right now. I wouldn't give Hughes any more than 7.5 and that would be locking him up for 8 years.  If it's shorter,  the AAV drops for me

I can’t see Hughes getting 9 mil. I’ll take Hughes on a 3 yr 7 mil. Then after that if he’s tightened up defensively I’ll give him 9. 

I expect Hughes and Petterson both on bridge deals like this, and to be fair they both seem like the type of guys that would be willing to help the team. Petterson with his injuries last year, and Hughes with his defensive lapses.... I think their contracts will be somewhat reasonable, but only a few years long.

His agent is going to tell you that there is a lot more than 1.5M$ difference between Myers and Hughes.  
 

it’s not about the personal between Hughes and Makar.  It’s about the market.  Hughes and Makar are in the same bracket, Makar being the top of that bracket and the others following close by but just under.  Similar to how Marner and Matthews were signed.

 

i don’t see anything under 8, unless Hughes is highly unselfish and give the teams friendly deal or he only sign a bridge deal

I agree with most of the numbers people are putting out for Hughes' contract...

 

 

 

 

 

 

But damn, y'all are criticizing him as if he was the defensive handicap Sbisa was a few years back. What happened to Hughes for the Calder over Makar? What happened to draft steal of the decade? Complete 180 now that contract talks are up. I guess money really does change people, even when you're a fan watching from afar :lol:

What happened to Hughes over makar? Ughhh.... All of last season? I guess you missed the memo. 

 

Quinns true colours showed when he lost a premier shut down d man as a partner. 

 

Appreciate him for what he is, but know he isn't an all around two way defensive stud.

lol the myriad of CDC fans arguing Hughes is better than Makar the last couple of years. And now that Makar is signed at 9mil AAV suddenly Makar is better and Hughes' contract should be less....? Ok!

People were arguing that Hughes was more deserving of the calder than Makar. Nobody is saying he's been better than Makar "the last couple of years"

 

Makar just got over payed, and people are saying Hughes shouldn't get that much. Nothing wrong with that.

I'll admit that after his first season, I was one of the ones who felt he was better than Cale Makar.  However, he did crap the bed last year, while Cale grew in leaps and bounds.  Cale's contract is a bit on the high side in my opinion, but he's trending in the right direction.  Quinn on the other hand, got bit partially from Tanev's departure, and in part from the sophomore slump (and I wonder how much was his own making, being pissy about losing his D-partner).  Last season, not only did he not improve upon his previous season, he actually laid a big stinker right in the middle of the sheet.

 

He needs to improve significantly to hit the high dollars; I'm still hopeful of his progression to being a top D, but based on what was displayed last year, he's definitely not deserving of a $9 million per year contract - yet.

So you think the difference between a Dman that puts up 60+ points, however finishes the year as a -20 or beyond... Vs a 2nd year norris level player is about 500k-1m ?

Huggy is a 6m player. 3x6m then ship him to NJ for a monster package before we have to pay him that long term deal. IF we are smart we will treat those situations like the bluejackets and get a haul while someone else way overpays for too long. ( i know he wanted out regardless ). We will have to get use to shipping out mid/late 20 year olds for picks and prospects if we want to remain competitive for a long time. Possibly some real good players. boeser/huggy ect. I think you keep EP for life. That skill though

Are you day drinking? 5.4 seth jones literally just did.

Smh, he just signed a 9.5M$ extension!!!

 

are you saying because Hughes only makes ELC right now his return would be different than after he’s signed to a new contract.  
 

if I’m drinking you must close to OD right now

It helps you not look like the entire tool shed if you just did a 2 second google search. Jones has 1 year left @ 5.4. AFTER this coming season the 9.5 kicks in.

It’s tough because everyone will now base Hughes contract off of Makar. Hughes needs to make a huge step next year and play a more sound game. 

Yeah, I know. Imho, here's how Jim need to approach the negotiations:

GMJB talking to agent JP Barry: "So about the contracts of Elias and Quinn..."

JP Barry: "Yeah, about that. You know, Heiskanen's getting $8.45 M AAV and Makar's getting $9 M AAV. Eichel's getting $10 M AAV and Matthews is getting $11.6 M AAV..."

GMJB: "You're not thinking big enough about Elias and Quinn. I think Quinn's comparable is Hedman (who is getting $7.875 M AAV) and Elias' comparable is Nathan Mackinnon (who is getting $6.3 M AAV)."

:P
