Brooks and others are overestimating Cally's worth. Brooks did the same with his speculation regarding Dubi's contract. 5 million and up was tossed around.

Andrew Ladd just signed for 5 years at a 4.4 cap hit. 1 year away from UFA just like Cally. Already a Captain of the Jets and with a cup ring on his resume. 29 g 59 pts last year. Why is Cally worth more under the same circumstances?

Ryan Kesler signed for 6 years at a 5 million cap hit. He was also 1 year before UFA, but coming off a 25 g 75 pts season. Even if one factors in somewhat of a hometown discount, Cally isn't that close in value to Kesler.

Are Vancouver and Winnipeg so much more desirable to play in than NY? Ladd's contract is market value for Cally, unless he takes a little less like Kesler.
