Which players have the most auction bids?
- by admin
The New York Islanders and the Pittsburgh Penguins have each had their auction bids raised in excess of $3 million, and the Philadelphia Flyers and the Ottawa Senators each have raised bids of more than $4 million.
Bids on NHL players who have won Stanley Cups have spiked dramatically this season, but there’s no reason to believe the market has been so flooded.
The most recent season to hit that mark was in 2012, when the Philadelphia Eagles had the most bids on a single player ($11,091,821) and the Tampa Bay Lightning had the second most ($9,858,917).
There have been only a handful of seasons where the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh auctions have topped $10 million each, with the most recently of those being the 2013-14 season, when a $1.1 million bid on Nicklas Grossmann led to a record-setting $13,000,000 bid for Pittsburgh Penguins forward Kris Letang.
Since the beginning of this season and throughout most of the 2014-15 season, there has been a significant drop in the number of bids on players who had the Stanley Cup.
In 2012, the most expensive auction bid on a player was $3.2 million, but in 2013-2014 that number dropped to $1,737,000.
The average auction bid for a player in the 2014 NHL playoffs, which took place from March 27-April 2, was $2.25 million, according to Sportracom.
That was followed by the $2,974,000 auction bid by New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh on July 13, 2013, and $2 million bid by Dallas Stars defenseman Mark Stuart on December 21, 2014.
The number of auction bids on NHLers has dropped by an average of about $1 million each year during the last three years, according.
A year ago, the average was $1 billion.
Auctions on players with Stanley Cups are typically done for individual purposes, with one-day bidding on players such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
In that bidding process, players who don’t win the Stanley Cups don’t have a chance to win the money.
Bidding on the NHL’s biggest prizes, however, is the primary reason for the increase in bidding.
Bidding on Crosby and Malkin is often seen as the most lucrative and lucrative in the game.
Crosby’s first Cup in 2005 brought in a record $1bn and the record-breaking bid for Malkin came in 2007 with a bid of $1billion.
The money goes to a team and to the players involved in the bidding process.
The bidding for the top players has been on a downward trajectory in recent years.
In 2015-16, there were 773 auctions on the league’s biggest players, up from 751 auctions in 2014-2015.
In 2016-17, there was only one auction on Crosby, down from five in 2015-2016.
There was a second auction in 2018 on Malkin, which was for a $3,700,000 contract, but it was for the same player.
