if he does, then we'd be looking at 4 mil a year after that, but if he backslides, then poile isnt stuck with another overpaid player.

gonna be interesting. I think we will see something just about like what hornqvist got, unless of course SK wins the Conn Smythe or something crazy like that in the next few weeks(which would be cool with me ad everyone else I am sure)
I think 2-2.5 for 2years is the perfect deal. He defiantly has the ability to be a 25-25 guy but the gamble isn't worth to risk to go any higher than 2.5. He's battled consistency issues in the past, somewhat due to him bouncing around from ahl/nhl but I'd be weary of jumping on the wagon. He seems to have stepped up his game considerably from his montreal days though. Props to him.
