Rick Nash, $5.4 million per year for five years!!! He just turned 21 years of age.
Season Totals: 2003-04 80 game played 41 goals 16 assists 57 points -35 +/-. Again, $5.4 million a year!!!
Will this throw the UFA market into disarray next year and for years to come? What happens when arbitration rolls around, will this contract be the measuring stick for future contracts?
I have a feeling there are a lot of GMs not too happy with this contract.
