Big contracts a big mistake

Spencer Camus, Summerside, P.E.I.

I seriously think NHL teams are making some big mistakes. Signing player to long-term deals can be very risky. For example, the New York Islanders thought they were gold when they signed Rick DiPietro to a 15-year, $67.5 million contract in 2006. Whoops.

Also, the Ilya Kovalchuk deal will blow up in New Jersey's face. Look where they are now…30th! I am very surprised in these hard times that teams would gamble money like that.

I hope that more teams do not make the same mistakes as the New York Islanders and the New Jersey Devils.
