7? Sure, without blinking.
That would seem to me to be the high end of any comparable restricted free agent numbers. But Shea mets all those intangibles they say they factor in, stats, durability, service length with the league and team, intangibles such as leadership (hey, Shea's the captain!) impact in the previous season (Shea played a big role in helping the Preds make the second round for the first time ever).
I saw some Toronto writer quoted once here as some sort of knowledgable source say an arbitrator would pay him 8. But that seems too high to me since Shea is restricted, I don't see any comparables nearly that high. But 7, I think so.
