The Maximum will probably only be offered to goalies and 30 minutes d-man. Maybe a phenom like Crosby and Ovechkin but we will see.
In order to offer the maximum you need to have a crop of prospects and /or cheap fillers. Something I consider we have enough of for a few years and shold continue to get with our strong scouting staff.
Offering the max, means you want to be a contender or you want to market your franchise with a bigname even if you're not going anywhere soon.
All these things considered. Players that I would offer the max to and are worth the investment are ;
...that's all I can think of for now.
The max this year will be arond 8M$, that's not that much money for one of these superstars who can win yo games on their own. Remeber Holik used to make 9M$ or something so this is still a reasonnable amount compared to the pre-cap CBA.
edit: I hope Gainey offers the max to someone like Chara, taking a risk that he signs and creating a bidding wart with Ottawa.
