Also, I think ALOT of people here are getting carried away with how much he truly deserves.
He doesn't deserve more than any other RFA of his age whose proven little to nothing.

I love Patches and I think he's going to be a star for us. But one good half a season doesn't prove anything. In fact one could argue it's one good half season after a full bad one. Right now he's like a reverse Pouliot. No way this guy makes more than 1.5 mil unless it's a long term deal and PG is certain this guy will be a star.

I doubt either side would agree to a long term deal due to what the other party would ask for. I see it being 1 year 1-1.5 million.

But yeah, he certainly doesn't deserve anymore. If anything the team deserves more prior to giving him a good deal.
