Here's some arguments :
1. East division is not competitive, so it's easy for the habs to finish in the top 4, meaning late draft pick each rounds.
2. Habs prospects depth is good, so we can spare some picks.
3. We need a replacement for Kovalev at RW
4. Minnessota wild can hardly match a strong offer.
Here's what i would offer to P-M B :
35 millions for 6 years (5,83 millions per year)
Over $4,687,530 to $5,859,412
Two first-round choices
I know it's a lot of money but it's not a big reach from Kovalev(4.5) to 5.8. We saved money with good signing (a.k, markov).
I'd never do that for many reasons...
1-he is another small player, not much of a factor come playoff time
2-he's not worth close to 6 mil
3-If we are to overpay, go get a UFA and keep your draft picks.
I think you need to keep your 1st rounders and keep the pipeline pumping out young players, I don't want to relive the late 90's of a team full of Dackell's and Juneau's.
