Why didn't you pick on other players I listed?!!
And how many goals did Samuelson score on us in the playoffs? What does he make again?
And yes it's up to the player and what he expects and is willing to accept. The NHLPA will make sure he gets every cent from his contract and that's their job. Not contract negotiations lol.
Guys that get paid top dollar should be the league's best year in and year out. The guys you listed are stars but not the league's best... they are getting paid accordingly imo.
Getzlaf is the best player you listed and he's set to make over 5mil for the next 3 years. He was a big part of his teams cup run but he's never led the league in anything and this past season he missed 16 games and his team failed to make the playoffs. Is he worth a whole lot more than his $5.35 cap hit?
Parise is on the last year of his $3+ mill contract. Do you see him signing for anything less than $5 mill?
Samuelson scored a bunch of goals against us in the first round.. whoop dee doo! He still didn't make it past the 2nd round and he doesn't have the resume to command a bigger contract.
