We're still a decent amount under the cap. I'm fine with this deal.

All the players might be getting an additional 10% pay cut as player salaries are now expected to be above 54% of projected league revenues.

Fred, i read about that too... seems like players salaries are going above the 54% mark, thankfully the players cant go on strike again :)

i thought this was kind of outrageous...

DiPietro offered 15-year deal

TheFourthPeriod.com

  On Friday, the Islanders offered goalie Rick DiPietro a wowing 15-year, $67.5 million contract, according to New York Newsday.

However, the newspaper claims the offer never got past the negotiation stage because of astronomical insurance premiums, most of which would have to be borne by DiPietro. The NHL insures only up to five years on a contract; the rest is up to the player.

"Oh, man, it was an exciting offer," DiPietro told Newsday. "And it would have put me where I want to be for 15 years.

   

"We were ready to (accept it)," DiPietro said. "It's kind of disappointing we couldn't, but it felt good to know they - Charles [Wang] and Mike [Milbury] - were ready to make that kind of commitment."

The paper suggests a more conventional deal would have a term of three to five years

15 years??? woud that have been the longest contract in sports??

And the experts thought the CBA would encourage short term contracts. The owners seem to be gambling that NHL revenues will increase significantly in the future. Sounds rosy, if true. I don't think they'll get there with the OLN but what do I know, eh?

He could have had a bright future in the NHL, but he got as greedy as Pavel Bure. Oh well, the NHL doesn't need another diving Russian.

Agreed. I love Pavel as a player, but sorry pal, you aren't worth anything more than $3.5 million, TOPS.

Pavel is a GREAT player, he could be the best IMO if he wants too... too bad he's not about the game and prone to injury. The guy scored 50+ goals his first 2 full seasons in Florida. Actually, if u look at his stats, every season where he played 70+ games he scored 51 goals or more

Detroit signed Zetterberg for 4yr 10.2m and DiPietro re-signs with the Islanders for 1 year 2.5m... 14yrs and $60m short of his previous offer lol

The Penguins officially signed Sidney Crosby yesterday. He gets $850,000 per year for 3 years. It does have a chance to double every year base on performance.

With MacInnis and Stevens retired, it also looks like the end for Mark Messier's long, LONG career. I can't believe how well he did even at such an age.

Czerkawski also was signed by Toronto.

The signing i was waiting all 'off-season' for. Ryder re-signs 1yr $1m with Montreal. Hopefuly he continues his excellent play and Gainey signs him to a long term deal.
