Or, if he's not already, he really will be when he starts cashing checks from the Avalanche.
Adrian Dater at the Post was generous enough to share the full details of Smyth's new contract with the Avalanche:
This season, Smyth will make a base salary of $5 million, and he received a additional $2.5 million signing bonus. His salary for the following four years will be $7.25 million, $6.5 million, $5.5 million and $4.5 million. His averaged cap number salary for the full term is $6.25 million.
So this season, including the signing bonus, he'll get paid $7.5 million, followed by a whopping $7.25 million next year, which, barring any huge free agent signings next July 1st or another 100+ point season from Joe Sakic, will almost guarantee that Smyth will become the Avs' highest paid player.
Not too shabby for a guy who hasn't scored more than 70 points a season. I wonder if he's in the market for a personal assistant...
