I don't know why everyone is dreaming of a 6m or less cap hit.

Looking at Eric Staal and Rick Nash, similar age and stats, here are their recent contract extensions and cap hits

Rick Nash: 8 years, 62.4m, 7.8m cap hit
Eric Staal: 7 years, 57.25m, 8.25 cap hit


So unless Carter gives a severe hometown discount, I'm thinking any cap hit around 6m is a pure pipe dream.

Get ready for 7.5+...
