ME Vlasic: 4yr 3.1million

All 2nd contracts for those players. Staal should not get more money then Suter or Seabrook. Both of whom are considered very good shutdown D-men that can put up points (more pts then Staal has so far as well). Both are on their countries respective olypmic squads.

3 or 4 years at around $3-3.25 million cap hit is closer to what he will get. He will not get $4 million + unless he signs long term, like over 5 years long term.
Hmm..I guess i'd lower my offer then after seeing that...About 3.5 for a couple years sounds right.
