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
Yes. Yes it is. If I'm a GM with Sather's track record, there is no way a 22 year old makes me feel like he's got me over a barrel. Short of maybe Gretzky or Orr.
He's a kid. This is how it works. If he wants to sit out, let's see how that works out for him. I suspect not well. If he's mature he'll get that, sign, keep his powder dry and go do his job. He'll be making a lot more money than most guys his age anyway. And the perks ain't bad either.
To your other points. I'm not sure they are relevant. The CBA was a much more far reaching labor and profit sharing dispute between partners in a huge enterprise.
Dizzy is a young guy negotiating his second contract. Different deal, imo.
