Is He Worth It? Hagel signs with the Lightning (8 years, $6.5M AAV) Tampa gave up a lot to get Havel, and they definitely see him as part of their future….but is a 6.5 AAV worth it?

Wasn’t he originally a Sabres prospect?

The risk isn't so much on this deal, the risk comes with hoping the salary cap actually expands like its supposed to in the next couple of years.

Havel is not worth $6.5.

Hagel might be.

Knight in the Undead Burg. Wields a heavy armor and a club made from a dragon’s tooth.

Nerd alert.

Havel isn’t as good as Hagel. And neither is worth 6.5 mill

That’s dumber than spelling the guys name wrong. Yeah let’s over pay the guy with the hopes the cap goes way up and it eventually looks like a decent deal 🙄

So, locking in a 25 year old who has now proven to be able to produce at about a 0.7PPG pace, play in all situations, forechecks well, and is responsible defensively is an overpay?

Solid deal. Not great, not terrible. About right in line for a young, 30-goal, top-six forward.

Does it have a NTC or NMC? Just curious. Haven't heard anything about that.

Not the first two years. Then a NTC for two years. The a 16 team NTC for the remainder.

That's not bad. I can live with that. I disagree with the doubters, but only time will ultimately tell.

For what he brings and what his ceiling is, that caphit is pretty middle of the road, if not a little cheap. The term is a little long for my tastes though, but I once thought that about Killorn also and he turned out to be worth it.

If Hagel can repeat or improve on last year's numbers this will prove to be a steal. Locking up a top six player to 8 years under 7M when they are 24 years old is pretty smart low risk business.

Definitely worth it. Great analytics guy. He’s just getting better.
