The main issue is deal makes Skinner a ufa/ or atleast takes him to status at the perfect age of 27 years old. That means when he is up for his next deal, the guy is going to want a Parise type contract.

Had he signed a 2-3 year deal, and on the 3rd contract then Canes re-signed him for another 6 years while he was still an RFA at the end of the 2nd contract. He would be up for his next contract at 29-30.
