Jones' price is jacked b/c Jones was overpaid on his entry level deal... he had leverage of being a UFA if we didn't sign him (see Blake Wheeler).

Any chance we extend Rinne this offseason? Hamhuis? Both are UFA next year. Poile rarely extends contracts before they are up. Can't really find any good reason for it. The few times he's done it (Legwand), he's overpaid.

I look around the league and see guys who were extended (Dustin Brown, Mike Richards, etc). They swooped in and offered an extension before they really established themselves, now it looks like a bargain.
