Wow. Seems pretty high to me.  I was thinking if a 4 year deal the next about 7 mil.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Seems high, but I guess not by that much. Should have been under $2mil. Jesper Fast just signed for 3 years at $1.85mil with similar numbers but while not playing with anybody as good as Auston Matthews. I thought that would have been the ceiling for Hyman's contract.

I mean if Hyman becomes a consistent 30-ish point scorer while providing good defensive play, this contract is fine. But at the same time the only way he scores that much is if he plays with Matthews, and that can't continue.

I really just thought Lou could have done better than this. It's weird he can get Kadri signed to $4.5mil long-term but can't get Hyman under $2mil.

Cap hit is probably pretty close to what he would have ended up with via arbitration, but, on a one or two year contract. So, this deal probably helps keep him affordable for longer.

Is it? MLHS found a number of potential comparables for Hyman and they all came in under $2mil: https://mapleleafshotstove.com/2017/05/12/connor-brown-zach-hyman-going-make-next-contracts/

Seems high to me for someone I think is very easily replaceable.

Well, he's ready to slot into Martin's place in year 3...

He's about $1m overpaid, I think. Weird, considering he had absolutely no leverage here.

I guess this would technically be buying 2 of his first UFA years (he's 25 now, so he's eligible to be a UFA at 27).  But still...if that's what he's getting, Connor Brown is going to get PAAIIIIIIID!

Hard to beat his work ethic and coming up with the puck behind the net.  If Auston likes him,that's important.

I doubt you will get him for that.

Is he arbitration eligible?

That contract really broke through.

He's a useful player, it's not about the numbers for him. He goes in there and digs for all 82 games. If you think you're getting a useful player in this league for under $2-million AAV you're dreaming.
