Where does Carcone rank in the NHL wide?

Carcone was ranked 10th in the NHL for cost per point at $26,724, just behind Erik Gustafsson of the New York Rangers who earned a point for every $26,612 on his $825,000 contract.

Jonathan Drouin of the Colorado Avalanche demonstrated exceptional value by scoring 56 points on a contract worth $825,000, equating to an average of $14,732 per point. Thomas Novak of the Nashville Predators was not far behind, tallying 45 points on a $800,000 salary cap hit, resulting in $17,777 per point.

Including Brandon Hagel from the Tampa Bay Lightning, who earned 37 points on a salary of $1.5 million ($20,000 per point), Stefan Noesen from the Carolina Hurricanes, who earned 37 points on a salary cap hit of $762,500 ($20,608 per point), and Danton Heinen from the Boston Bruins, who earned 36 points on a salary cap hit of $775,000 ($21,527 per point), these players stand out as some of the most cost-effective in the NHL this season.
