Austin Matthews, Auston Matthews, Hockey discussed on The Hockey PDOcast

The Hockey PDOcast


These things go. That kind of happened a little bit with Austin Matthews is 5 year deal coming off as you'll see. I remember at the time there was a bit of a blowback of people being like, wow. What? Yeah. No, no. By hockey. Yes. But I want to see auston Matthews. When his 5 year deal and sign a one year deal, I'll be like, okay. I'm going to, I'm going to do what I'm going to go here, try to win a cup here if it doesn't work. I'm open to do whatever in the next year. I think that's, I think that's something where there's, I'd like to see that become at least part of the thing. I'm not against a guy signing long term. I'm not against it at all, but I think the sport in the market becomes better when superstars realize what they're worth and are realized to push it because it's the same thing. When you have McDavid signed for as much as he does for as long as he is, it becomes a natural thing where anyone who makes even close to that. They're like, well, Connor McDavid makes that. Who do you think you are? That's just hockey ethos that comes into play. And I want that gone. Right. Well, think about it. It'll be very interesting to see. I think David pasternak is going to get paid what he deserves. But for the longest time for the bruins, he was like, well, Patrice bergeron makes this amount. He and, you know, he's our captain. Or I guess he wasn't. It was just nano charter for a while, but he's our best forward. You can't. You can't go into that room and be making more than him. So you have to take less and it's like, I mean, I understand why the team would want to push that agenda. It's a pretty tricky one, and also that's not how real life economics work. A contract you sign today can not be compared to something that's signed next year because inflation and all that. But all right, the other thing. Let's take a break. Let's take a break here. Yeah. And we can pick it back up and we can talk about a variety of other things as well. So yeah, we're going to take that break here. And then pick it back up. You are listening to the hockey PDO guest streaming live on the sports radio network. All right, we're back
