Does seem a little on the high side for a ~20 goal, ~45 point C with questionable defence. Most centers in that cap range a much stronger offensive producers (though, they're mostly on contracts signed a few seasons ago). It is however right in line with the contract Lou gave Zajac.

I feel the way Nylander-haters feel about Willy's contract. Gotta pay for that +/- though :)

I get the sense that with the way scoring jumped last year and so many guys but up career numbers there are a lot of contracts that are going to look really high at first but probably will probably just look like GMs doing a bad job of accounting for the different reality when all is said and done.

Obviously there's differences between a centre vs. a winger and being a goal scorer vs. a playmaker (*cough* *cough*), but it's interesting to compare this deal with the one his teammate Josh Bailey got last season.

Bailey had a career season where he scored 76 points and got 6 years with a $5mil AAV.
Nelson had a career season where he scored 53 points and got 6 years with a $6mil AAV.

One paid for what the player should be expect to produce, based on multiple seasons. The other paid based on a career season that will almost certainly not be improved upon, and is quite likely not to be repeated multiple times.

You wonder how sensitive the Islanders are to the perception of another guy leaving though.
