NHL: A Comparison of the Stats So Far

Big Signings pushing other teams to their cap limits

The dogdays of the summer season are officially upon us. What is interesting though is just how much money teams continue to be willing to spend to lock up their players long term. For example, according to tsn.ca, the Nashville Predators just spend 64 million dollars to lock up Ryan Johansen for 8 years. Wow, that is 8 million US dollars per year on a young player who has never had more than 71 points in a single season.

A crazy week to start Free Agency

The first week of NHL free agency has lived up to all expectations. It has been crazy and has seen players like Patrick Marleau shift from the San Jose Sharks to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Another major transaction was that the Dallas Stars were able to sign Radulov away from the Montreal Canadiens and it is likely that he will play on the Stars top line.

Another of the big signings was that the New York Rangers were able to sign slick puck moving defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to a 4 year contact that will pay a little over 6 million dollars per year.
