im going to guess 4 based on their offer?
3 years. Most players become UFA after 7 years in the league. There are exceptions (like Potter) who become UFA due to a lack of playing time at the NHL level.
So the best case scenario is that we sign him for 3 or 5 (or more) years. But IMO, I'd rather do 4 years than 2 as his cap hit in the last 2 years will be lower than what it would be if have to re-sign him 2 years from now.
