Malkin's next contract

Postby Steve Dave on Mon Feb 25, 2013 9:07 pm

What do you think Malkin's avg. cap hit will be for his next contract? 8.7? Lower/Higher?
Considering Crosby has avgeraged 1.41 points per game (4th All-Time) in his career to Malkin's 1.23 along with Crosby's superior faceoff abilities, do you think Malkin's cap hit should equal Crosby's?

If having the same cap hit as Crosby makes him happy and a Penguin for life, you do it.

He will have roughly the same cap hit again with his next contract. Wouldn't be surprised at all if he did it again for 8.7 million per year.

8.7 million per season for 8 years. 69.6 Million.

They still have the same agent right? Can't see why they wouldn't push for the same cap hit as Sid

Crosby is a discount at 8.7. The difference between the two is not so great as to make it a point of contention.

Would you pay Selanne in his prime the same as Jagr in his prime if both played on the same team?

I stated the same, not more. Jagr has outperformed Selanne on par with Crosby outperforming Malkin...

Idoit said more.

I do think that Jagr > Selanne and Crosby > Malkin. But if I were Geno's agent I'd certainly point to the amount of hardware my client has piled up so far.

This isn't quite an apt comparison. IMO, Jagr was head and shoulders above Selanne throughout the 1990's. Yes, Selanne produced points when he was healthy, but I don't think he was ever a real threat to take the scoring title from Jagr. Whereas, in any given season, Crosby and Malkin can be battling for that title.

Genos deal can only be 8 years long and you won't have to worry about the varience since Geno will be in his prime all through the deal so as you can imagine his cap hit will be higher than Sids. I am sure Sid doesn't care.

8 years 9.5 cap hit. 76 million.

Sorry to Geno, but if you sign him to a cap hit higher than 8.7 mil, or whatever Crosby will be making, you're really handcuffing the team cap-wise.

This is a valid point except most teams key on Crosby and Malkin only has to go up against second pairings. Also, you could argue Malkin has had better linemates (Malone, Sykora, Neal) vs (Armstrong, Recchi, Dupuis).

Yup, especially with the cap going back down to $64.3M next season and possibly staying there for a few years until league revenues get back up to speed. Even an $8.7M cap hit is going to create problems with Sutter, Orpik, Letang, Niskanen, Despres, and Engelland all hitting free agency at the same time.

Since Malkin wears 71, he should go with a 7.1 cap hit. Then Shero could bring his buddy from Toronto over as a long term fix.

Sid took 8.7 because it was a circumvention deal. He made out well in that regard. They can't offer Geno the same term or upfront money so he may be insistent on a higher cap hit.

If this is a Selanne/Jagr discussion. I'd take Jagr in his prime over Selanne in his prime.... Relatively easily at that...
