My guess is that they would try and give both the same money and term. In fact I think they would be follish not to do this. You can argue that both are of equal value even if there production this year was not the same. And by doing so you avoid a touchy situation where you have to place one above the other. You also have a much better chance of gettingthem to take a bit of a disount if they feel they are part of a team building exercise. You have also then set the tone for the Nuge at the same time.
You will notice that Chicago gave Kane and Toews the same money. Anaheim did the same with Getzlaf and Perry.
I'd try and get this done before the CBA expires. There has be recent talk that suggest that if the cap is rolled back from the projected $69-70M cap that it wouldbe done uniformly.
