Unprecedented

I scanned through the local rags this morning and hadn't seen anything that captivated me to post in here....

I stumbled onto SunSportstv's message forums and the natives were getting anxious over something Cousin Larry Brooks muttered this morning... Yet it's Kuklas Korner who had the fortitude enough to include the major meat of the rumor that Brooks was reporting Vinny Lecavalier's camp was pitching...

A 10 year deal?!?!

Every year I look at the FA signings and I am confused why the NHL signs players to such short contracts... 3-5 year deals are the norm when it comes to "long term" contracts. I can understand a bit that with guaranteed money, you don't want to invest in a player too long or you may get screwed if he goes bust....

A $20.5 million dollar, 3-year deal is also on the table and was at the forefront of the report by Cousin Larry... Which seems to drop the entirety of the "home town discount" talk Kent Hughes was throwing out.

Edit: Thanks to Lyle Richardson of Spectors's Hockey for reminding me of the last lump-sum contracts that were unprecedented and foolish at the same time: Jaromir Jagr and Alexi Yashin.
