Many fans were wondering about the exact details for Chris Kreider’s contract and here are the details.
Money is not an issue for the wealthiest franchise in the NHL. The AAV of 6.5M really only represents a cap increase of less than 2M from Kreider’s current hit. The concern is term which is not a real issue because he does not have a full no move clause. New York can essentially trade him, but would have some control as to destination.
Overall this is a good contract.
