The Rangers need DZ in the line-up from day 1. 3 years(including this season)takes to him to 1 year before group III(IF he plays 40 accrued games in the next 3 seasons/that number will be less this season with the 48 game season)or 2 years before group III at 27. In 3 years,DZ will be arbitration eligible.

7 or 27
Do you think Sather will offer him 5 years? I don't see it happening. 4 years is even less likely because it would coincide with his eligibility for unrestricted free agency. So that leaves 1, 2 or 3 year deals. 1 is also unlikely because Sather won't want to have to deal with him next year with all the other contracts that will be up.

On a 3 year deal, maybe he could get 3 mil per. Carlson took a 6 year deal and got just under 4 mil per year.
