The Cap Hit on Patrick Sharp’s New Deal
I didn’t really see the details of Patrick Sharp’s new deal posted anywhere, but www.capgeek.com is showing that Sharp will make an average of 5.9m over the length of the five-year deal. It’s a higher hit than I would have liked, but I still love this deal. It’s at just about fair market value when you compare him to similar players around the league. Sharp is also a big time leader and versatile player who contributes at wing, center, defense on the power-play, and he also kills penalties. This is how you handle a contract negotiation for a player that is important to your team on and off the playing surface. Jerry Angelo…I am looking in your direction.
