Top 10 Worst NHL Contracts in 2012-13

USATSI_7673014_154224518_lowresThe NHL and the players are currently battling it out, trying come up with a ‘fair’ agreement on a new CBA. Both sides are looking get as many millions as they can from the other side. If/when the season does start, there will bunch of players who will be getting more than they should. Here is our top 10 worst contracts for 2012-13.

10. Mike Komisarek – Toronto Maple Leafs

2012-13: $3.5 million salary, $4.5 million cap hit. 2 years and $7 million in salary remaining on his contract.

Komisarek would be higher on the list, but his salary drops to $3.5 million this year and next. The Leafs signed Komisarek to a 5 year, $22.5 million contract in 2009. Komisarek has never lived up to the bill in Toronto. He has a no movement clause, so the Leafs haven’t even able to bury him in the minors. Komisarek was healthy scratch last season, and was bound to see some time in the pressbox this year as well. He’s in the 5-7 range on their depth chart. In 3 seasons with the Leafs, he’s appeared in 154 games, recording 19 points and 167 PIMs. He’s never been known for his offensive game, but he has struggled on the defensive and toughness side of things.

9. Keith Ballard – Vancouver Canucks

2012-13 $4.2 million salary and cap hit. Ballard has 3 years, and $12.6 million in salary remaining on his contract.

Ballard’s contract was for 6 years, $25.2 million deal, and he hasn’t lived up to contract since joining the Canucks in 2010. Injuries and inconsistent play made it difficult for Ballard to crack their lineup last year. He only got into 47 regular season games, recording a goal and 6 assists. In 126 regular season and playoff games, Ballard has recorded 3 goals and 12 assists.

8. Paul Martin – Pittsburgh Penguins

2012-13 $4 million salary, $5 million cap hit. 3 years remaining and $14 million in salary remaining on his contract.

Martin hasn’t had the success in Pittsburgh like he did in New Jersey before signing with the Pens as a free agent. Even in New Jersey, he may not have been a $5 million player. There were numerous rumors that the Penguins were trying to unload him last year.

7. Shawn Horcoff – Edmonton

2012-13: $6 million salary, $5.5 million cap hit. 3 years and $13 million in salary remaining on his contract.

Horcoff is the Oilers captain and brings some intangibles to the table, but $5.5 million for a guy who’ll be playing on the 3rd line is way too much. Since signing his 6 year deal, Horcoff has only registered 97 points in 205 games, most of which was on their top 2 lines.

6. Ville Leino – Buffalo Sabres

2012-13: $6 million salary, $4.5 million cap hit. 5 years remaining and $21 million in salary remaining on his contract.

Leino had a terrible first season in Buffalo, recording 8 goals and 17 assists for 25 points in 71 games. A 19 goal, 53 point season the previous year in Philadelphia got him the big 6 year contract. It was tempting to leave Leino off the list, giving him a ‘bad year’ tab, but the Sabres overpaid for a player with only one good year.
