Latest NHL offer, per Bob McKenzie:
  • $300M in make whole (although $50M in pension which I don't understand)
  • gave on UFA age and salary arbitration
  • 5-year max contracts (7-years if re-signing)
  • 5% max salary variance
  • 10-year term

Outside the make $50M pension part, I really like this offer. I really like the idea of 5-year contracts because it makes things more interesting for both sides (I mean, Ovy would be UFA in a couple years...) but the extra two years for your guy is good as well. And of course 10-year term would be great.

We'll see how it shakes out today...
