Another massive contract extension has been signed in the National Hockey League. Mat Barzal and the New York Islanders have agreed on an eight-year $9.125 million deal.

Given that this deal was signed by an Eastern Conference team far away from Las Vegas, this signing has nothing to do with the VGK, right?

Wrong! Here’s our story on how the Nathan Mackinnon extension, similar to this Barzal deal, might affect the Golden Knights and Jack Eichel in the future. The salary cap is only going to go up, folks!
