Love Yak though, modeled after my favorite player, Hope to see him light it up.
$5.5M for 6, or more, years is actually pretty reasonable for all the parties involved.

The other nice thing is that Tavares is a solid comparable and you can use the number to keep all the kids, in theory, at the same level. Like the Nik Lidstrom rule in Detroit.
