So, Umberger was offered a contract which would have paid him 675,000 in the 3rd year and Blackburn made 1,130,000. Thats a huge difference for 6 places in the draft.
Lundmark made 1,025,000 for this year and is also a group II RFA.
i agree that we have no idea what sather is offering if anything and that the rookie cap has changed, but sather hasnt exactly been shelling it out for kids, if he hit the rookie max, i dont know, but by comparison there arent huge discrepancies in the deal lundmark has when compared to the deal umberger received from vancouver, and lundmark was drafted higher
as for blackburn's deal, he was drafted 5 spots higher then umberger and blackie would make 269,000 plus more than umberger was offered, my point is although umberger was lowballed by burke, i just dont see sather coughing up alot more money, he should offer him a better deal, but not one nearly as good as blackburn got
