    Default Ryan Nugent-Hopkins contract extension 7 years 42 Million

    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins signs seven-year extension with Oilers - CBSSports.com

    The Nuge is headed into the final season of his entry-level deal and already he has himself a seven-year extension. Per Elliotte Friedman the contract calls for $42 million over the seven seasons, or $6 million per.
    You have got to be ****ing me with this deal. What on Earth has this kid done to earn this type of deal? Absolute insanity.

    One of my favorite online practices is to read the Oilers section of HFBoard. Easily the most deluded fan base in the NHL and I can't get enough of it. Here's my favorite post of the day...

    HFBoards - View Single Post - Confirmed with Link: RNH Signed - 7 Years, $42m

    These are team guys. Personal egos aside.
    None of this "I'm better, I deserve more"
    $6mil... That's it. How can ANYONE ask for more?
    Hall, Eb, nuge, all $6mil. The bar is set, toe the line or you won't be an Oiler.

    7yrs? If only people like the city.


    Good job nuge, good job mact(and Tambo)

    I guess signing deals based on potential is the norm now. All these guys come off their entry level deals and break the bank on their second deal without earning it. Its a really dumb way to do business. I'm really curious how different the structure would be if there weren't a cap...

    In a way, I get why Edmonton did it. The Oilers HAVE to overpay to keep their own players and acquire free agents, and they still have a torrid time with free agents. For a franchise that has been for years fully committed to rebuilding from the ground up, their emerging players are far more valuable to them than to anyone else. They're going to sink or swim with this crew. Unfortunately for them, even their three successive #1 overall picks are projecting to be merely very good players, and not quite elite. Instead of two wingers and a flimsy center, I'm sure they'd have preferred Stamkos or Tavares, the two preceding #1 overall picks, and they might have even preferred MacKinnon, although we haven't seen him play a regular season game yet.

    Actually, at the end of it, it could be at a discount.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Isn't that what Buffalo fans said when their GM matched Vanek's offer sheet or when Tyler Myers signed his retirement contract at age 20?

    That's the biggest problem with the Oilers and its sad that their fans can't see the big picture.

    You tank for all your high draft picks, and they did nothing but pick forwards. They never really cared for their goaltending and defensive issues and now they need to worry about re-signing all these guys whose entry level contracts are just about up. But they have to pay them the "big bucks" to keep them... ouch.

    Their fans just keep thinking that enough offensive will get you the wins. That's why they make such a big deal about who is on the 1st line, 2nd line, 3rd line, and 4th line. I can't help but look at our championship run. A guy like Stoll didn't give a damn if he was considered a 3rd or 4th line center. We were so deep we could roll all 4 lines and everyone got to play 10-13 minutes a game regardless.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
