#2: Colton Sissons, 2 years left at $2,857,143 AAV

One of the most random contract numbers you'll ever see is Colton Sissons making approximately $2.857 million. And this contract was originally signed as a lengthy seven-year deal in 2019. A lot of years to tie up into a player that has never made the jump as a big time offensive playmaker.

However, as this contract has wore on, it has proven to be a great bargain for the Predators. Mainly because Sissons is such a balanced and steady player. He does so many vital little things that adds up to a major impact. He wins faceoffs, he blocks shots, he can get into the physical areas, and he even saw his offense hit a spike thanks to a more offensive friendly approach by Andrew Brunette.

Sissons has been around so long that it's easy to forget he's still relatively young in hockey years. He will be 31 in November, and it's hard to say where he'll fit into the starting lineup in year 2 under Brunette.

Could Sissons also be a trade piece for Trotz if he's looking for a superstar offensive player this offseason? He definitely could be because his contract is so cheap relative to everything positive he does on the ice.

Sissons completed his 10th season in the NHL with a career high in points (35), assists (20) and tied his career high in goals with 15. He also averaged the highest ice time of 16:34 of his NHL career and his highest shots on goal total of 131.
