Tom Gaglardi, Owner of the Dallas Stars franchise recently called out forwards Jamie Benn
and Tyler Seguin
for their play the past couple seasons. Even going on to calling them pathetic and needing to show up and, prove their worth with the amount of money they make. Well unfortunately for Tom he may blow a gasket in the coming days after, finding out Tyler Seguin
has one of the worst contracts in the NHL in some peoples eyes this season.
The Athletic released their list of the "10 worst contracts in the NHL" for this upcoming season and Seguin takes the cake. The 2011 Stanley Cup champion could have a bounce back season, but no matter how well he bounces back it still likely won't be worth his $13 million dollar salary.
Seguin, 30, is coming off his worse season since his rookie year. Seguin was limited to 24 goals and 25 assists this season for a total of 49 points in 81 games. A pretty tough pill to swallow considering the fact that, not long ago, he was a consistent 70+ point player.
With five years remaining on a $78 million dollar contract, the six time All-Star will definitely have to tighten his skates if he wants to regain any trust from management in the near future. If not, GM Jim Nill may be forced to part ways with the centerman for the best he can get - even if it's just "future considerations".
Somewhat surprisingly, there are no Leafs listed in the top 10 worst deals in the NHL. I'm sure some had felt as though Tavares would be on this list, but the Leafs' captain still provides excellent value for his $11M cap hit, even at 31 years-of-age.Seth Jones
comes in at #2, followed closely by Jeff Skinner
at #3. Marc-Edouard Vlasic
and Darnell Nurse
round out the top 5, while Colton Parayko
, Erik Karlsson
, Zach Werenski, Nick Suzuki
and Ben Chiarot
rank 6th-10th in that order, per Dom Luszczyszyn's model.
