But the cap hit this year being 10.5 mil doesn't mean the remaining years are lower, its only higher this year because the 6.96 million he is making is over a shorter period of time and needs to be prorated since this year he essentially is making a higher salary on a per day basis. His contract is 41.77 million over 6 years. If he signed for 41.77 million over 6 years at the beginning of the year he would have a cap hit of 6.96 million per year every year. All that signing this late has done is mean this years cap hit is higher and 2-6 is the exact same as if he signed earlier. Unless I am missing something here.Buggy166 wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2018 12:23 ammath
cap hit cannot be 10.2 this year UNLESS he signs on December 1st. Anything before that, and the cap hit wouldn't be 6.9 for the remaining years and 10 mil up front. It would be something like 7.5 mil every year instead...
problem is, MLS cannot make it SUPER obvious they're circumventing the cap...even if its legal and above the board...all the teams would start doing this now...also..fans would be super pissed that Nylander missed 26 games because of accounting and personal greed on the player's part.
Seems like the exact mentality that would mean he was right to go for higher money and less team friendly contract. There are a lot of very good players on Toronto right now and it would be pretty crappy to sign a team friendly contract just to be traded down the line to who knows where to make sure they have room for the other guys.either way, i dont have a good feeling about how this whole thing went down. Not in terms of bad vibes, but he's clearly not interested in winning a cup in Toronto as much as making top dollar. I hope they win a cup this year, and he gets traded in 1-2 years.
