Wings Sign Andrew Copp to 5-Year/$28.125m Deal; $5.625m AAV

I think Detroit are going to be sorely disappointed. Only had an offensive burst when playing with a top-5 winger in the NHL, which Detroit doesn't have. He's not physical, even in the playoffs. A real middle-6 tweener and a nice complimentary player. Thanks for the help this year, good luck to you.

Interesting that he ends up getting more than Strome.  When he arrived, it was speculated that he might be more attractive than Strome because he would be cheaper.

 

Key point right there. His performance down the run and in the playoffs probably bought him an extra $0.75-1 million AAV.

Except that he did fuck all in the Tampa series. He had two points, both assists. One in game one, one in game six. He disappeared when it mattered most.

Right when Panarin disappeared, because he was a passenger who reaped the rewards of playing with a top-5 LW.

For sure, but when you're a middle of the range (i.e. $4-6 million range) free agent going to the market, his overall body of work with the Rangers definitely elevated his expected salary demand and his agent appears to have done his job there.

But so did most of the team. Not a huge fan of Copp but the whole team did shit after game one. Guess if he produced vs Tampa his price tag would’ve been $7M per and Drury probably would’ve fought hard to keep him
