On Thursday, we learned that Vladimir Tarasenko had signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Ottawa Senators. The forward now has a year to prove he deserves a lucrative contract.

The big problem is that he's 31 years old and his best years are behind him. According to reporter Andy Strickland, Tarasenko had a much more attractive offer on the table earlier this month, but decided to turn it down.
We're talking about an offer of four years and 5.5 million a year with the Sens, the team he eventually signed with for one year and 5 million.
Still according to Strickland, the forward had two other offers on the table: one year and 5.25 million in Carolina and one year at 6 million in San Jose.
If we look at the contracts awarded to autonomous players this summer, they're all pretty short-lived and/or not very lucrative due to the salary cap. Ryan O'Reilly agreed to sign for four years for 18 million .
Tarasenko's decision to wait too long was a bad one, as he could have secured an additional $17 million. Time will tell if he did the right thing, as he will be a free agent player again next summer, this time at the age of 32.
