Ranking the 10 Worst Contracts in the NHL Right Now

Hoping to address their need for a proven starting goaltender, the Florida Panthers signed Sergei Bobrovsky to a seven-year, $70 million contract in July 2019. If the 32-year-old netminder's performance during the first season of that deal is any indication, the Panthers will have buyer's remorse over the remaining six seasons.

The only active multi-time Vezina Trophy winner, Bobrovsky joined the Panthers after backstopping the Columbus Blue Jackets to their first playoff series victory. However, he was inconsistent throughout the 2018-19 season, finishing with stats (2.58 goals-against average, .913 save percentage) well below those of his Vezina years.
