Josi's 8 year deal will take him to 38 years old with an AAV of 9.059 million.

While it is a long deal, that's probably less than his open market value. Doughty and Karlsson both signed deals that started with 11 million, and I don't think Josi is that far off of those guys.

Doughty's deal is already starting to look bad. I give Karlsson 1 - 2 years before his looks bad.

There's the odd exception, like Giodarno and Chara, but defencemen burn out quickly in their 30s. The only reason to lock guys up long-term is in thinking your window is now and who cares about the future. This is why the owners are looking to shortern deals in the next CBA. I could see them wanting to cap it at say 5/6 years max. The owners need a CBA to protect them from their GMs.

Karlsson is already getting bad. He's putting up points, but his defensive effort has completely gone off a cliff. I'd recommend keeping an eye on him if you watch and SJ games. The IDGAF aura is glowing around him when he doesn't have the puck in his own end. It's also hilarious how he throws little fits every time he looks like an idiot on a GA. Usually complaining at his D partner.

Nice to see Nashville finally blowing up their salaries in a desperate attempt to finally win something. Hope it goes badly for them :)

Didn't realize he was already 29 (30 when the contract kick in). This contract is going to be iffy to start, then really start to look bad in a few years. Doughty and Karlsson (and Burns and Vlasic and Seabrook and Keith and Subban and Weber and so many more) are already showing their age with years left on their deals. Flames got lucky with Gio.
