Cap Efficiency

08/12/2021 at 4:21pm EDT

from Dom Luszczyszyn of The Athletic,

Each contract was graded based on where a player’s combined surplus value and positive value probability fall on the following percentile scale.

Here’s how each team stacks up in regard to the efficiency of all the contracts they currently have signed.

15. Detroit

What once looked like one of the most grotesque cap situations in hockey is finally looking much cleaner. The worst deal on the book, Frans Nielsen’s, is done after this year, as are the deals for Danny DeKeyser and Marc Staal, both of whom are overpaid for what they bring to the table. Nick Leddy probably also qualifies for that.

Aside from that, this is about as boring a cap sheet as you’ll find in the league. Nothing long term, nothing outside the box in either direction. It makes sense that Detroit lands almost square in the middle of the league.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
