The signing yesterday might've been the biggest steal in the NHL

In a bit longer than most of us would have liked, Evan Bouchard signed with the Edmonton Oilers.

Nevertheless, Edmonton was able to secure enough cap space to sign the defenseman who has proven to be a valuable asset.

Evan Bouchard's contract comparables (2x$3.9M):

1. K'Andre Miller $3.872M x 2
2. Bowen Byram $3.85M x 2
3. Vince Dunn $4M x 2
4. Noah Dobson $4M x 3
5. Filip Hronek $4.4M x 3




The 40-point defenseman has comparables for AAV across the league, however, as his 2-year, $3.9 Million AAV is arguably a success for the team.

The cap hit for Bouchard is right between Bowen Byram's $3.8Mx2 and Vince Dunn's $4Mx2.

Bouchard and the Oilers seem to have found a nice sweet spot for both parties, and we're going to enjoy two more years of him in Oil Country.
