Point is:
For this type of player, who can score 30 goals per season, 7 million per will become (or already is) the norm.

His agent had good numbers to work with and found him a good payday.
Besides, Ottawa has plenty of capspace so who cares if some may think Ryan is overpaid.

And yes, I would take Kessel over Ryan.







Kessel was the best forward at the Olympics before the medals round started.

Feasted on lower tier teams.

Kessel also decided he’s not the competitive type, and would take the overpayment to stay in toronto where there is no expectation to win, by management. Good for him, he got his payday.

Seeing as Ryan just got overpaid by Ottawa, don't you think the exact same thing could be said about him?

Especially given the budget constraints... Situation is looking worse than ever Ottawa.

Ottawa has signed all but one of their pending UFAs they publicly said they were going to, prior to this start of this season.

They cut ties with Spezza by trading him and Karlsson, for a number of assets from Dallas.

Brought in a Veteran Center and are starting to bring into the roster a few of their prospects.

All systems are moving forward, don't know what you're seeing as "worse".

Center depth isn't worse, I'll give you that. It's the worst.

Limited budget team and they blew a chunk of it on Ryan... and traded far and away their best center, possibly best forward to do it. Trading away their best pieces, making sure they stay competitive enough to draw asses to the seats... I think the ghost of Ballard possessed Eugene.

Are you saying that Ballard tried to ice competitive teams??

Wasn't one of his most famous quotes something like " Doesn't matter if I have a team of bums on the ice, as long as there's bums in all the seats"?

They were always competitive enough to draw interest. That's all Eugene's looking for.

I'm not a big fan of the Ryan trade. Don't like those kind of deals. But it strikes me as entirely bizarre when Leaf fans become sanctimonious over a $7m deal for Ryan. Re ber the Leafs just started a $7m with Phaneuf. Unbelievable. And, $8 m. for the world's fastest donut.

yes. The Leafs payed an mil more for a far superior player, and an equal amount for a #1 d-man.

The Sens dumped their best forward so they could resign a good top-6 winger to a 7M contract.

It'd have made a lot more sense if you brought up the Clarkson deal.

60% of the goals for bobby Ryan.

Kessel buries them faster. If you do the math, that's faster per goal for kessel still.

Yes. Ignore the facts that he can out skate anyone on the sens, and that he hasnt missed a game since he started playing for the Leafs. The guy that might out produce just about any two forwards on the Senators this coming season should be mocked because he's got a chubby face.

these cheap shots at him are very lowbrow and lazy imo
you cant criticize what he is paid to do because he is one of the best so you make fun of his look or personality. He is clearly an introvert and does not like attention, doesnt look like a pro athlete..so what?

Karlsson saves his energy by only skating in two zones, so he doesn't count.

No, he's gotta go back there every time Franson coughs up the puck on the PP... Which is every PP.

You know, watch for it, I've seen a lot of "highlights" where the team playing the Sens clears the puck, and karlssons defense partner chases it back, and karlsson sits at the other teams blue line, further up ice than every other sens player.

I don't even see kessel do that.
