I agree that whoever signs him probably won't get the same production that Tampa will on this contract. I expect his production will taper downward as he gets older yes, but not significantly. Is it absurd to think that Stamkos can put up 35-40 goal seasons into his early thirties?
No. Is it absurd to pay him like he is 50-goal guy through his early 30s? Yes.
Same reason the bidding war on Kovalchuk was idiotic, and why the draft is so damn important.
