In terms of the most cost effective players, McDavid is by and far the #1 selection. He recorded 100 points this season, while on his entry level contract of 925,000. It makes sense that talented rookies will be the most cost effective players in the league. If they can manage 50 plus points per season while not earning 1 million dollars, they immediately make an impact on the ice, but not in the budget of teams.

More notable players on this list are players NOT in their entry level deals with their respective clubs. Sam Gagner, aged 27 earned 650,000 this season on a one year deal with the Blue Jackets. He has since signed a 3 year contract with the Canucks worth over 9 million in total. Huge payday from the former Oiler, and Coyote.

Jonathan Marchessault has since been drafted by the Las Vegas Golden Knights, but his value was unprecedented in the league. Jonathan Marchessault exploded on the scene after the injury of several of the Panther’s stars throughout the season. He recorded 30 goals and was only paid 750,000 this season. Huge value for a young centerman, that the panthers simply let go this season. Frankly I’m shocked he wasn’t retained until at least the deadline this year and traded for picks.

Radim Vrbata was also a notable contract on this list. His contract was noticeably stacked with performance bonuses as his age will continue to be questioned.  He had 20 Goals and 55 Points and only made $1,000,000 this season.

  • 10 GP: $250,000
  • 30 GP: $250,000
  • 20 Goals/40 PTS: $500,000
  • Playoffs: $250,000
  • Per Playoff Round: $250,000

Here were his bonuses. At the end of the year he earned a cool $1,000,000 in cap related bonuses.
