Why did I think Possler's first name was Gustav?

Cuz it is and I was thinking of Johan Larsson still. 


I've never heard of this rule. Is this really a thing? Feel like this is how GMs give out terrible contracts. One of them 5 types of bias my man Dubas talked about

It' doesn't make sense as a rule of thumb considering how the cap changes every year.

Yeah, for forwards mostly.

Go look at the Sabres contracts.  Look at the performance of the player in the 2-3 before the contract was signed.  

 

For example,

Okposo averaged 61 pts in the 3 years before he signed here and received 6 mil per season

Ennis averaged 44.5 pts in the 2 seasons before his extension and received 4.6 per season

WPG gave Kane 5.25 per season after his breakout campaign of 57 pts in 2011-12

Gionta earns 4.25.  His last season 5 seasons with Montreal were 46, 46, 26 pts in 48 games (44 pts over 82 gms), 15 pts in 31 games (48 pt pace) and 40 pts.

It even works on smaller contracts. Foligno averaged 21 pts in his last 3 seasons before signing his 1yr 2.25 mill deal for this past season.
