Personally I would like to see Kane sign the same type of "show me what you can do" 2 year contract as Bogo. He may be able to get a bit more than Bogo, but not much. My guess is approx 3 million unless he is pushing 40 goals this year. After 2 years you still have 2 more years of RFA, which keeps the jets in the drivers seat.

The worst length of contract would be 4 years as you set him free the first year of free agency eligability, which is poor asset management IMO.

The other option is sign him long-long term (7+ years) this summer for big bucks, that is usually reserved for the truley elite you never want to lose (Crosby, Malkin & Ovi types, but even that can come back and bite you).
