Now Weber currently makes 4.5 million a Suter gets 3.5 million, Probably the two biggest bargains in the NHL!! Top ten at least.

So read over the above salaries again, then see Shea Weber and Ryan Suter just as good if not better than most of them. Why the heck would they not both want $7 million?? They are worth it! They are entitled to it! They will get it! Simple!
Both Suter and Weber will be dealt with next summer and both will be offered lifetime deals in the Duncan Keith mold...they will each have a cap hit of around $5.5 million per season if they accept and like Legwand and Erat's contracts, their deals will be structured in reverse of each other so that the actual cash payout will be similar. NHL has guaranteed contracts, so they will be getting their money...it just won't be all front loaded...

Here's the breakdown of Keith's 13 year deal:
