2009: Who Has The Most Character (Bucks)


Given that Ryan O'Reilly's agent has said that negotiation for a new contract will start at $6,500,000, I thought it might be interesting to see how Ryan's compensation, thus far in his career, compares to his 2009 draftmates. I used the CapGeek fact sheet on ELC's as a guide and credited Tavares, Dutchy, Hedman, and Kane with maximum bonuses they could have earned. You can find the CapGeek page here. For the lockout season, I prorated the contracts, but not bonus, at (48/82) percent.

Name Entry Level Contract Lockout 2013/2014 Total Compensation
John Tavares $5,250,000 $2,341,463 $5,000,000 $12,591,463
Matt Duchene $5,350,000 $1,902,439 $3,750,000 $11,002,439
Victor Hedman $5,250,000 $1,756,097 $3,000,000 $10,006,097
Evander Kane $5,250,000 $1,756,097 $4,500,000 $11,506,097
Ryan O'Reilly $2,700,000 $3,085,365 $6,500,000 $12,285,365

As you can see, Ryan has currently made more than a $1 million more than Duchene, $2 million more than 3rd place draftee Hedman, and only trails first overall Tavares by about $300k.

Fun Fact: Tavares, Duchene, and Kane are all set to make $6 mil for the next 4 seasons. If ROR signs a contract at $6.5 million, he will have made more money than any of them 9 seasons after their draft. This holds true even if he makes only $5,660,000 for the next two seasons.
