Just a question Tom... why would Marchant accept the ALS?
That would essentially tie him up as an RFA for 3 more years (provided that he continued to make the ALS)... and like you said, group V's usually get paid more relative to their quality than group III's, meaning that he'd probably be missing out on a bigger payday when he became a UFA at 31, as opposed to 28.
Seems to me, he'd probably ask for more than the ALS, and at around a figure that he figured he'd come close to getting as a UFA...
TheSpecialist - MacT thinks he was that good of a hockey player when in actuality he was no better then a Louie Debrusk.
