Back on topic: this is a lot of term for an aging middle player.
Stanley Cup-fever always leads to overcommitment.

I wonder if Pietrangelo and him are buddies?

That will pay him until he is 37 but 6.5M shouldn't be too bad if the cap increases as expected in a few years.

Yeah it will be survivable; the last 4 years will still be like an overpay of $3-4M for the production Schenn is likely to be putting up.

Yeah I'm going to guess that based off a typical aging curve Schenn's reduced production will be more significant than future cap increases.

Yeah. That's what I meant. Not that he won't be overpaid, but that an overpayment of that amount won't be cap crippling 3-4 years from now.

Any early projections on how much the cap might jump with the tv deal(s)?

There was this a while back:


So there's a good chance we have a roughly $81.5mil cap ceiling for half of Marner's contract. And then we're banking on an increase because of the new TV deal, which I'm sure is going to be as massive as the NHL expects it to be since they've never signed a bad TV deal before, right?

If it's 8x annually, then it goes from 200M to 1.6B, which by my rough calculations would result in a cap increase of ~22M.

seems pretty optimistic to me though

It would be 1B less per season than the NBA.
