 SPECTOR’S NOTE: Hainsey will earn $3 million for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons and $2.5 million in 2016-17.

The 33-year-old earned that contract. Though Hainsey’s not as effective a puck-moving defenseman anymore, he remains a solid defensive blueliner. He averaged over 21 minutes of ice time per game this season, was second in blocked shots and even-strength ice time and third in short-handed ice time. 


  1. Atlanta overpaid him for his services and ability, but as long as Canes need vet leadership on the blue line, they could fare worse

  2. I would have to agree Atlanta overpaid for him. He’ll be useless there, they don’t even have a team anymore ! 😛

    Its not a bad deal for him what he brings. I completely forgot he still played in the NHL though. lol
