    Bidding for season 8 LGAHLPSN is about wrapped up. I’d like to take a look at some of the more notable signings and what it means for the teams that won these players.
    Normally you would assume the highest paid contract would be the first mentioned. Nope we are jumping straight to the third highest contract and the one that has received the most heat.
    @OptimusPrimus77 (rd) $8,000,000 (Milwaukee) :team390: That JJ-Finesse- contract doesn’t look so bad now. Look I’m sure him and his supposed dpartner are going to have great chemistry and be a solid d-pairing but this is just an absurd amount of cap. If we were talking about a stellar NHL level dman skipping NHL bidding and you want to lock that up ok but that isn’t the case. @Ray9733 seems like a good guy and I hope this works out but this move is certainly raising some eyebrows to say the least
    @JJ-Finesse- (lw) $9,750,000 (stockton) :team516: The top dog when it comes to her contract and with her output on the Xbox AHL side hard not to see why teams were willing to go so high on one player. Shes had plenty of success at the NHL level on both consoles so I’m sure at the end of the day @ODucks182 will be happy with locking up this player
    @bertone2909 (c) $8,250,000 (Manitoba) :team307: Who saw this coming....ok well everyone did and with good reason he has been a big part of the last two Calder cups in the moose 3peat. Does he put up flashy 100pt seasons no but center is the most important position on the ice and if you find a guy who clearly knows how to win you keep him.
    @SAND_MAN257 (lw) $6,000,000 (Bridgeport) :team315: This one really confused me maybe I’m missing something that three teams saw. This guy has solid chl stats on both consoles however there is no track record at the AHL or NHL level to suggest this is a correct value especially seeing as the two other players who received $6,000,000 contracts @DatsyukianxDeke (Chicago) :team395: and @Gaallz (Springfield) :team617: have a history of successful seasons at the higher levels
    @DatsyukianxDeke (rw) $6,000,000 (Chicago) :team395: Well you can thank me @Meestah Don for driving up dats cap. I was all in on him and for good reason a proven AHL player on both consoles including 81 pts for the wolves last season no wonder they did what they had to do to retain him.
    @dmac7719 (ld) $4,500,000 (Hartford) :team314: in my honest opinion of the top five paid defensemen this is the best valued and its fifth in terms of salary. Nothing against the top four but at this price and his history at all three levels I think this was well worth it good job @CJ x 58
    @BarDownDaily (c) $5,000,000 @bdeez_nutz (rw) $4,500,000 (Tucson) :team618: Ok time to explain why we were willing to spend up on these two. I had plenty of cap to work with going into bidding. My guess was that these two would be about 4m which was close but I wanted to spend up on a couple top guys when it became apparent we weren’t going to get the ones we wanted we decided we at the very least needed to lock these two up and secure a solid 2nd line and I think we did just that. Nutz was a teammate of mine before and a good dude who has proved he is a solid AHL player and had nothing but praise for his center last season bardown who also has proven to be a solid AHL player. Are these contracts a little high yes I admit that but if they can produce at the rate they have then I will be happy with it as I had the money to spend not to mention the team chat is a better place with them around LETS GO RUNNAZ!
    @Yoshi_swagger (g) $3,500,500 (Belleville) :team777: I understand that the rule of thumb is don’t overspend on a goalie but you know what I’m cool with this. Yoshi is arguably the best goalie on the PSN side if not then top 5 at least. Is 3.5m a lot even for that statement? On most teams the answer would be yes because most managers aren’t as skilled as @oBiLL3Yo on the sticks and at building a team. I personally guarantee that the baby sens will be a contender and yoshi will be sitting there with a sub 2.00 GAA and it will be well worth it
    A couple of steal in this bidding I’d say would be @puckzone (rw) $500,000 (stockton) :team516: who has had some good numbers and joins a team with some serious talent. Also from the stockton heat @Hadji (ld) $500,000 some very solid seasons on the AHLPSN side definitely another steal by the heat props to them on not only spending up on the guys they want but also sneaking in these under the radar guys who will compliment the big contracts well
    Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts on season 8 AHL Bidding no hard feelings to those who don’t like what was said go prove me wrong good luck to all this season -Zero :team618::team618::team618:
