17 year contract at over 100 Mil means Ilya is good until age 44!
It’s amazing how the GM’s keep giving these massive contracts to players. I know you want the player but isn’t there a point where you think enough is enough. 17 years is unbelievable, I thought it was like a typo or something when I read it at first. These players are very good players, but as they get older it’s going to pose a problem as their play declines. Also, you think you could check out my article relating to this? I really want to hear your thoughts http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/note-to-nhl-gms-this-is-getting-out-of-hand/

Great article Chris!
I would like to see a lower base salary with incentives for goals, assists, plus/minus, games played, etc.
Sports and money has gotten out of hand (look at the price of your tickets). I would like to see players hustle more to make the bucks. In my opinion, most players are becoming too relaxed and forgetting how to be role models to our kids.
