[Signing] Blue Jackets re-sign Zach Werenski

Recommended Posts

Honestly, overpaid, but at the same time, Columbus liquidated most of their high paid players and just got a bunch of draft pick.  Don’t see them

needing any cap room in the next 3-4 years with all those ELC.  

Term is actually pretty good despite high AAV.

This kind of contract at 24... Horvat's draft class was still taking in 5.5x6 or 6x6s contracts.. 


I guess he did score 20 goals a couple of years ago. If he performs at that level from 24 to 30 years old - his best years, this contract would be well worth it. But these kids are getting their huge pay day way too earlier.

That's like a $2 million overpayment.  No way he should get Seth Jones money or get paid more than Hamilton.


If I'm Victor Hedman I am holding out until Tampa gives me $11 million...

 You do not know that he is better than Seth Jones?

It's deals like this that make it genuinely concerning how much Hughes and Petey are going to demand.  Werenski is being paid more than Makar.  I get that this is Werenski's deal after a bridge whereas Makar is just coming off his ELC, but Werenski is not better than Makar (IMHO) even if he has a longer resume.

Terrible AAV for CBJ, but can't help but think why CBJ and TBL can get their superstars extended more than 1 year before their current contracts are due to expire; whereas we are now worried about an offer sheet for Petey. We should have got him signed long before now!
