Madden is 37, Morrisson is 35, Legwand is 29. I don't view those as a reasonable comparable due to the age difference. Legwand would still make more than both of those players and get a multi-year deal if he were to become a free agent today.

Legwand is the most maligned player in this franchise's history due to his draft position and the expectations heaped upon him jading people's view. He has not turned out to be the player that was hyped, but certainly has carved out a career as a key cog for the Predators franchise and would have many teams jumping at the chance to acquire him if he became available...
