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.
yep, good research there...i definitely want to lock him up long term. like i said, ideally id love to sign him for like 10-12 years at a lower cap rate but the tradeoff is he gets security for that entire team. hell throw in a NMC. the kid is the real deal, he has been since the moment hes stepped on the NHL ice. no reason to feel his game will fall off, especially since youd be signing him right through his prime years.
