Unfair to ask this...Have you ever seen a UFA make less as he did
as RFA , with no setback/injury history? Even with the hometown discount these
conditions don't seem prevalent. I honestly think 3.5-4M on 3-4 years is more then fair
for what he brings to the table.

For the record I strongly believe he will get resigned for 3 years for 11M.
Out of all the people that we got rid of during the quick-fix rebuild AK is one of the only ones left. He is generally liked by his teammates and plays in whichever role he is put in. 3.75 is more then fair for a guy that will give u 50+ points in a top 6 role & 40-50 pts in a top 9 role.

You have 25-35 pts players making 2.5-3M so I find it's unfair to ask this from his (or his agent).

P.N : If you plan on adding a rebuttal please provide facts and reasonable comparisons.
