    Player gets paid, Teams have flexibility to trade and stay under the cap. Works for everyone. Except the fans. 70Mil signing bonus is going to make ticket prices sky rocket even more. but its Montreal so who cares.
    He isn't getting 70 million today. It'll be 9 million a season or something. Look at ROR's contract worth the Sabres. It's just a way to avoid escrow penalties.

    a direct quote from my husband when he saw the proposed McDavid contract and then he repeated it with this Price contract:

    "This is the end of the NHL as we know it"
