That's why he was signed longer.

If you give him 1.8M to 2.0M, what's he going to ask in the next contract? 4.0M, 5.0M. You have to be firm in these contracts. 1.4M at the most.
Agreed. And what does it say to every other player who chose a lower paycheque to be an Oiler? How many young players will want comparable raises when their contracts are up?
