Those are Luongoish numbers. He's not a Luongoish goalie though. I think they overpaid by a couple mil.

A six-year $37.8M deal works out to an average of $6.3M/year.

Wow.

EDIT: Hat trick!

He won a cup. Not many goalies can make that claim. I still think it's too much though. I wouldn't go higher than $5 per.

Also, it's an escalating salary contract... quite unlike the recent ones... here's the year by year breakdown:

2010/11: $5,000,000
2011/12: $6,300,000
2012/13: $6,400,000
2013/14: $6,600,000
2014/15: $6,700,000
2015/16: $6,800,000

I'm sure the NHL is happy it's not a 12 or 15 year contract.

HA HA!

I know that he won the conn smyth... but so did Giguere... I could see 6.3 on a two or three year deal but for 6 years, I would have expected 5.5

Interesting.


that is odd... but to me the only thing that matters is the cap hit.

Holy cow, that is a substantial amount of money. Goodness...I like Cam Ward a lot, I've done a complete 180 from the way I used to feel about him, but he's still on the bubble between great and just quite good. The NTC doesn't matter to me personally, when an organization - and especially a guy like Rutherford - makes a commitment to someone, they fully intent to see it through.

Not to preach, but I'm reading Brodeur's book right now (5.99 at Chapters - get it!), and he said that he consciously took less money to allow the Devils to ice the best team possible. He knew he was worth 8 million a year, but he got it down to 5.2 with the understanding that Lou would use the extra money to ensure the team was competitive year after year. I'm not slamming Ward for getting this much, but that would have been something to have kept in mind.

I'd be more inclined to think that Fraudeur knew he was worth 3-million a year without a good team and stifling system in front of him. But maybe I'm giving him too much credit. Cam Ward Extension 668437
