If the offers are too low, match them. If the offers are too high, collect the picks for next year.
Excellent point, and I would like to say that I hope we can get more than a third round pick (Klein is much more valuable than a third rounder..) I just feel Poile has squashed his value. If your thoughts on the offer sheet are right, then I would probably say his value is a bit higher than I projected...


Comments on the deal:

1) It makes sense for both parties
2) We aren't paying too much for potential. I would peg Suter's value at around 3-3.5
3) This contract takes Suter right up to UFA. He has already been in the league 3 years, add 4 more, and you hit that year 7 UFA rule (I believe).
