Whatever it is, you max out the offer so no one can best you without massively overpaying. If it's max 6 years, you offer him 6 years at the maximum hit you can afford. In our case that might be a little north of $8M. That's a $3M per year raise to play with the two best C on the planet and win Cups. He'd at least consider it. Skip the foreplay and just give him the home run deal right away.
