He signed a 3 year entry deal right? He was 18 -19. He should be an RFA next summer. So yea if he waits it out thats 2 more seasons with the Isles but than he's free. He would be 23.... seasoned in the NHL and still wicked talented.

I 'm sure Brad Richards thinks he's got another long term deal coming his way. He's a UFA this summer. He's 30.

I'm just using JT as an example. I'm all for Richards on a shorter deal. But what if the market says 5 - 6 years for Brad this summer. You have to be careful.
