Without him, our powerplay would have look as this year because it was looking like this before he arrived.And with a powerplay that low, we wouldnt have made the playoff.
We own him a big thank you and offering him 300k would sound like an insult.
its not a point of low balling him. i like his contributions to the pp. And as much as we owe him a big thank you, he owes the habs a big thank you for giving him a chance to still be in this league.
My understanding of the contracts in this league is that by the time he comes in, he'll only be getting paid that much because most of the season would of been done.
So in reality i think the offer would be one year contract to 600k about and he would be getting close to half because he will only be able to play half of the year about.
