Dumb reason not to sign him. You see a wealth of top-6 players on our roster?

I agree. Lock up Skinner now, we really can't afford not to. We have a chance to do something this year, with the addition of Jordan Staal.

We don't need uncertainty with another one of our core players. We don't need a disgruntled Skinner, we don't need any distractions.

Lock him up and move forward. With Eric being motivated (hopefully) for the entire season, Jordan coming aboard, what I predict will be a breakout year for Jiri (I say 30 goals), and Skinner signed long-term, we can maybe go on a run here.

If not, next year we sign another top-6 player and reload, try again.

We don't have the luxury of toying around with Skinner and his contract. Just get it done.
