- Ryan Rishaug: “There most definitely would have been a better greenback determine on the open market, however remaining an Oilers was an absolute precedence for RNH who can now full 18 years with the membership by the tip of this deal.”
The 28-year previous Nugent-Hopkins was drafted 1st total by the Oilers 2011.
Jason Gregor: “Oilers wished decrease AAV and RNH wished time period. $5.12m AAV is honest worth for Edmonton for a lot of time period most definitely whereas RNH will get safety he wished. They’re betting RNH will be extra productive at 5×5. From 2019-2021 he was a hundred and fiftieth amongst fwds in P/60. From 2016-2018 he was one hundred and sixty fifth.”
Mark Spector: “Oilers give extra time period than they’d have favored, however Nugent-Hopkins takes $1M off his earlier AAV.
Crew couldn’t afford to lose a LW. Participant wished to remain.
It is a honest however prolonged contract that can see RNH as an Oiler for all times (full no motion clause).”
