I agree with yianik & budda,

We are better off signing PK to a 2 yr contract then give him a long term contract when his RFA years are coming close to an end. Kind of like how we did it with Price.

Price will get a 5-6 year contract that will take him to his early 30's. You get a little more vaue out of those prime 26-30 years that way.

Look at the Isles, they are so happy with the Tavarres contract but at the end of it, he'll be a UFA in his prime 26, ready to leave NY. It was actually bad for them in the real long run imo. It gives JT his freedom pretty damm close to as possible and he gets paid good money his whole time there. Then can leave for the Rangers for a $10m payday by then.
