Connor McDavid: $100 Million Dollar Man


The deal, which will begin in 2018-19, will carry an annual cap hit of $12.5 million.

The Edmonton Oilers announced Wednesday that the center has signed a contract extension with an annual average value of $12.5 million over eight years.

"It easily could have been a lot higher in value and shorter in term", Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli said. Clayton Kershaw is right behind James, with MLB's top salary that calls for him to make $35.571 million each season.

US Government Is Going to Bat for Apple
The Cupertino manufacturer was penalized by European Union to pay Dublin up to US$14.8 billion in back taxes. Apple appealed the ruling to the Eurozone's second-highest court in Luxembourg in December.

He tallied 100 points in 82 games last season, capturing the Art Ross trophy as the league's leading scorer.

The previous highest cap hits were from a pair of teammates in Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews who signed matching eight year, $84 million deals in 2014. "Building a team to win the Stanley Cup was a constant discussion point in this negotiation".

"For me, getting it done early shows a sign that I want to be here, there was no hesitation, it's not even a thought, I want to be here in Edmonton, and I think getting it done early shows that".

Call for ban on sex robots as demand picks up
The report points to a Japanese company called Trottla, which now manufactures and markets child sex dolls. Love doesn't differentiate between gender, age, caste, race, ethnicity, humans, and robots.

A former star for the OHL's Erie Otters, the 20-year-old forward immediately entered the National Hockey League with Edmonton following his selection in 2015, making his rookie debut during the 2015-16 season to the tune of 16 goals and 48 points in 45 regular-season games.

"Being here for the next nine years is something that was important to me", McDavid said after the announcement. The 20-year-old rightly commanded a huge chunk of Edmonton's salary cap considering the caliber of player he is, but we've seen how teams like the Blackhawks have struggled to build around expensive superstars.

The Oilers are also working to re-sign rising star Leon Draisaitl, who is a restricted free agent after finishing his entry-level deal and due a big raise. "All that matters is that we're here and we go the deal done and I'm here for the next nine years and that's all that matters".

Red Cross Making "Emergency Call" For Blood Donors
A healthy donor may donate platelets as few as 7 days apart, but a maximum of 24 times a year, according to the Red Cross. Almost 700 fewer blood drives are scheduled during the Independence Day week than the weeks before and after the holiday.

"We got a taste of it previous year but we certainly have some unfinished business".
