So roughly $4.5m/yr for Goligoski?

His numbers in 23 games with DAL last year were fine (5G, 10A), E, 7 PPP), but… this year his numbers are nearly identical except in a 36 game sample, and he’s -6 to boot.  Not a good trend.

It does, however, make Nik Kronwall’s contract look brilliant.

I’d take it over Ericsson’s though.

Gogo is a train wreck in the defensive zone because of his small size

“We’d take a blind, mentally-challenged oaf that can’t either skate or handle the puck over Ericsson’s contract.”

And thus, the story of how the Wings signed Mike Commodore!!!!

Anyhow, I guess honestly Goligoski’s contract isn’t outrageous like a lot of others have been.  It’s still seeming to be overpaying though.

How is it under a cap that these guys keep getting paid this kind of coin?...
