Is Vanek worth $50 million?
Fri, July 6, 2007

Restricted free agent Thomas Vanek has signed US$50-million, seven-year offersheet with the Edmonton Oilers, a source told The Canadian Press on Friday.

The source said Vanek would receive salaries of $10 million and $8 million in the first two years of the deal before making $6.4 million in each of the remaining five seasons.

As an Oilers fan, I confess the last while has been difficult to watch. However, there is conversation going around that Regier indicated he would match any offer the Oilers made and he told Kevin Lowe this last night. This smells of a desperation on the part of Kevin Lowe. I doubt there is a GM in the league that will want to deal with him now. I think that this could be the beginning of the end for Lowe. Perhaps it isn't Edmonton that players dislike as much as it is Lowe. After all, he traded away Smyth and Smith. I wonder about how the organization is being run.

lol this is way too funny..Isn't this the reason the NHL had the lockout? Weren't players salaries soring too high and only teams with alot of money were able to sign free agents? Well what do we have now? Free agents are still getting over paid and teams with alot of money are the only ones making any moves. So what is the difference? Well we lost a season of hockey for no real reason it seems...and now the young players...unproven and not worthy of huge contracts are getting exactly that... Vanek Iam sorry is not worth 10 millor 8 mil o 6.4 mill .. all of which he will be recieving. Good luck edmonton and good luck nhl at gaining viewers in this ever so blown up New NHL....bah!
