Darren Dreger reports that the terms of Alexei’s 1-year deal is worth $3M with $200k in signing bonuses, for a $3.2M cap hit. Ponikarovsky has scored 104 goals over the last 5 seasons. That’s an average of 20.8 per season, or $153,846 each time he scores. There seems to be a little bit of confusion over the signing bonus, whether the 200k is included in the 3M number or whether it is in addition to it. Capgeek has it as a $3M cap hit**, so I’m going with that.
What does this mean? Who cares, we have a LW.
**(UPDATE: Capgeek changed their minds. 3.2M seems to be the consensus. TSN agrees. So I changed the numbers again. I don’t even care if they change them yet another time, I’m done flip flopping 200k.)
