I can see how Oshie could claim a Backes sized salary. He was given a 'prove it' contract, and everyone generally feels like he stepped up and really proved it. He avoided injury and has had very similar production to Backes a few years ago when he was given his current contract. a few less goals, but a few more assists. He has shown himself to be a key player on both ends of the ice and cemented himself as a top line forward. He's exciting to watch and a fan favorite. He helps put people in the seats and sells a ton of merchandise. I can see him getting between 4 and 5 per year. if i had to nail down a number, I say 4.5 for 4 years.

EDIT: Looks like I aimed high, but at least I got the last 3 years correct.
