WSH Re-Sign Nicklas Backstrom to 5-Year/$46M Extension; $9.2M AAV


Recommended Posts

Somewhere between 8 and 9 because he's got injuries. I see this as solidifying him at $9, easily.


Looking back, I listed a best case scenario at 8.7m. I'd expect him to be 10+, mostly based on the Skinner and Stone contracts. Less would be great, though.

Sounds right for guy who has been a perennial PPG or near PPG player for 12 years and is a cog for that franchise.


I'm somewhat surprised it's under 10 to be honest. If Zibanejad's production sticks for 2 more seasons after this he was never going to come in under 10, so little bearing there IMO.
