Pacioretty is still cost-controlled. Well, pending CBA changes. He doesn't fall into the same category as Doan, and he/the team can go to arbitration and figure out the real number he's worth if they can't automatically agree. Doan isn't a comparable in that process. Although here's hoping Pacioretty does make himself worth $7.5M as a RFA too. That'd be great for the team if he elevated himself to that status. I don't see it as a problem. You can figure out what a player is worth and whether you'll pay that or not, on a case-by-case basis. You don't see Lars Eller arguing his worth based on what Scott Gomez is getting paid, for example.
