Yeah. That's what I was thinking.

13.3 would be just over 150% of Crosby's AAV.

Crosby took a discount, too, because he understood how the business works. He was worth more than 8.7 at the time of his signing when Ovi was already making 9.5.

Maybe McDavid's agent told him to make as much money as he can because he's never winning a cup in Edmonton ;-)

Right. That's the point I'm making. :-)

13.3 or something wouldn't be a terrible idea IF the salary cap was exploding. But it's been rising slowly.

Well, when Sid signed his deal his percentage of the cap was roughly around 17% of the Pens total player budget. McDavids contract would be slightly (less than 1%) more.   I'm hoping that he's smart enough to look at what's going on in Chicago and tread wisely.  

But I also know Chiarelli likes to spend money, so I'm not all that hopeful.

McDavid for 13mil is starting to sound better and better, considering the alternative places you can spend your cap space. It's a good thing Montreal didn't need a 1C or anything.

Crazy.

Almost 15% of the cap to a goalie.

8 years, $12.5 per season for McDavid.  It's going to be tough to build around that, but it could have been worse.

Yea, he could be a 30 year old goalie ;-)
