How well would that sit with you if you were in his position?

"Well Jordan, we know you were one of the top 15 scorers in the world last year, but we want to pay you for that success once you prove you can do it for 3 years".

I can tell you if my employer told me that, I would be taking interviews for a new one the next day.

After the signings of Pacioretty, Skinner, Tavares, Kane, Toews, etc., the market is set and you either pay your young players or someone else will take them off your hands.
