Cause that is the last year this 60 point scorer (Mike Richards) will be costing the Kings a 5.75 million dollar cap hit. If I have the math right, he’ll be 53 years old by then. His best days are ALREADY behind him and yet you pay him ACTUAL CASH MONEY this year of 6.6 million, next year EIGHT POINT FOUR MILLION, then 7.6, 7, 6, 5.5, 4.5, 3 and 3. The cap hit for Mike Richards will still be 5.75 million in the year 2020!!!
Lets look at the numbers, shall we? He had 80 points, a career high, in 08. Then 62. Then 66.
This year? The trend continues, he’s on pace for 58 points. You know how many players had more even strength points than him last year? 59. He was the 6oth best point scorer, ES, in the league.
That ought to go down pretty severely over the next 9 years, huh Deano?
The joke is on you, Guido!!!
