Grabovsky

Third contract:
Gorges

Only 1 out of these 6 guys got a Cap Hit over $1.1M
Not a typical 2nd contract because he's 25? Does he get an extra million from Chiarelli because he's 25? Those recent second contracts you've mentioned were all negotiated by Gainey, and they all show financial restraint. He's one of the few GM's in the league who seems to be able to show control in that area.
