MLHS FA Contest – Standings after One

MLHS FA Contest – Standings after One

36

The first thing that became clear as I was tallying up the results after Burke’s first UFA pickup was that a lot of MLHS‘ers saw the Colby Armstrong signing coming. 76 of you in fact. 13 of those 76 (Beathoven, moimoi28, Gordie Orr, dlb, xXGods SoldierXx, 2 Minutes, Sugar Hill, Sk8trBoi, Doorman, CbtSpr, JD, CarltontheBear, Tiguak) predicted the length and value of contract within 100K, some predicting 3 years, $3 million on the nose. While the majority of those who had Armstrong signing in Toronto had him netting a contract more in the 2.5 million/year range, there were almost as many predicting Armstrong would receive the $3 million he got or a shade above… which indicates the supposed “Finger-like” overpayment wasn’t all that unexpected. Around these parts at least, many knew the price going in.

We’ve got a 12-way tie at the top, with 38 trailing by just a point. Indications are that Burke isn’t done in the free agent market. Should he be done, we will hold a royal rumble in the ACC parking lot to decide a winner of the jersey*. Here are the full standings after one signing:
