Contract Evaluation: NHL Long Term Deals

The Spotrac team looked at all the current contracts that have a length of 10 years or longer (excluding goalies) to determine if players that signed extremely long term deals payoff right away for the teams that sign them. Points per game (PPG) for the season leading into and after the signing were determined. Points per game were the chosen statistic because it normalized each player per year based on the actual number of games played.
