Even 3.5 for Letang was very fair most of the HF posters thought.
Dubinsky got 3.7M also, Staal deserves a million less for what reason? If anything he will be getting more and should be.
And saying he doesn't deserve money just for the fact he is a RFA isn't a valid response. Unless we are trying to piss Staal off so he gets the hell out of NY to join one of his brothers in 4 years, which is a very possible scenario.
Dubi got 3.7 over 2 years, Inferno said 2-2.75
which would be more than Dubi.
2 years 2.5 per would be a good deal for both parties. Staal would get his big pay day in 2 years when he has 1 year left of RFA. something like 5-7 years at 4.5-6 mil per depending on what his offense does over the next 2 years.
Give him 7-8 years now at 4-4.5 per.
The next couple years will dictate what turns out to be the better decision.
