Contracts are a big part of the NHL today. Every offseason, teams sign free agents or re-sign their own players to new deals.
Some of those deals work out well for everybody, but sometimes players end up earning a lot more money than they're worth, even by the standards set by pro athletes.
Here is a look at the 15 worst contracts in the NHL right now.
Keep in mind that not all of these players are underachievers or poor hockey players. Sometimes, the terms of the contract are just absurd, be it dollar amount or length or a combination of the two.
Feel free to add your own if you feel there is another bad deal I missed or if you disagree with some of my choices but please say why in your comments.
