Ranking the 10 worst contracts in the NHL 2020


  • Players are now allowed to return home to locations outside of their club’s home city, including outside of North America if flights are available, the league announced Monday.
  • However, they need to self-quarantine through March 27, unless a longer period is necessary due to local travel mandates.
  • That means a lot of players are gonna be sitting back home getting paid doing nothing.
  • And for some players, it won’t be making any difference…
  • In most professional sports, bad contracts aren’t the end of the world.
  • You can just trade them, hide them in the minors, or they’ll be gone in about four or five years anyway.
  • If worst comes to worst, you can always just buy them out.
  • It’s not that easy in the NHL.
  • Bad deals in the NHL can cost teams for years. Not just in terms of money.
  • It could also make them get rid of players because they can’t afford them because they have to give some third-pairing defenseman $6 million.
  • And unless that player on a bad deal suddenly become allergic to hockey equipment, you’re stuck with them.
  • Unless you can find a bad general manager to take on your mistake.
