Zach Bogosian just got a contract worth so much more than he has proven he is worth to this point that either the Jets have a crystal ball or a shitty GM. I’m willing to guess shitty GM.
Bogosian is 23, a RFA, and has never scored more than 30 points in his NHL career. He just signed a 36M, 7 year deal. The Cap hit for Bogo is 5.14M.
Thats a heck of a lot of cheddar to give up for a guy who was 4th on his own defense corps in scoring and time on ice.
A 7 year deal is also pretty ballsy considering the kid has only played 1 healthy season so far out of 5. He missed 15 games last year, 17 the year before, 11 the year before that.
So to recap, the Jets just dumped a Brinks truck filled with cash and jewels on the doorstep of an injury prone defenseman who doesnt really score all that much.
The Jets are hopeless.
