I doubt there will be big enough changes to the ELC system that it would really pay off for a player to wait for that reason alone. Sure, they'll probably tweak the maximum amounts up, at least, but it doesn't really pay off to forego a contract at say $900k now (and a lot less in the minors anyway) just to try to recoup it if/when the ELC max goes up next year.

But I can totally see Kristo wanting to go back. It's a reasonable fit for us if he does too. Wouldn't bother me either way.
