That's what concerns me the most.... He's a very nice player and would be a solid addition to any team but his value is going to be very high and as soon as he hits free agency he goes from a $3.9 cap hit a year to a $5-5.5 mil cap hit on his next contract.... I'd prefer if the team used that kind of money on a Center or a Veteran defenseman in the not too distant future... Would hate to lose any valuable asset to get a player one year before he hits FA... If Sharp were signed at that $3.9 mil cap hit for another 2 or 3 years, that's a whole different story.
