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.
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.
