The Tampa Bay Lightning announced today that they had reached an agreement on a contract extension with right wing Teddy Purcell. The 26-year old set career highs in all offensive categories for the second consecutive season, and starting in 2013-14 will be paid an average of $4.5 million/season.
What sort of value does that contract offer?
Are negotiations on this collective bargaining agreement going better or worse than they went in 2004?

The collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and NHLPA is slated to expire on September 15, 2012. The league and players’ association have until then to negotiate the details on a new agreement, or else the possibility exists that the 2012-13 season will not begin on time. How are things looking so far?

Ottawa had a reasonably busy start to free agency, making one trade and signing a pair of low-money contracts. At least one of those contracts has a good chance of offering exceptional value to the team in the 2012-13 season: the one-year, $1.25 million deal the team agreed to with Guillaume Latendresse.

The New York Islanders picked up what might prove to be one of the best assets, per dollar, on the free agent market when they signed Brad Boyes to a one-year deal worth $1.0 million.
