Not sure who would want to actually give up all that much.

Because what's the down side to this PK deal? Let's say he does ask for 6M over a long term deal. What's the issue? Does anybody here think PK will not be worth 6M in a couple of years at the most?? PK is not going to be a flop. He is already part of some of the best young Dman in the game. With his work ethic, drive, ambition and attitude, there's no reason to think he will simply go ********, stop improving and take steps backward. He will only get better and better, and now that we have a Defensive Coach, it'll only speed up the process. So again, what's really the risk in giving him a bigger contract? Injuries? I can live with that risk.
wasnt talking about picks, if PHX called and offered OEL + for Subban for example i would jump all over it,dont get me wrong i agree with everything u say but hes not untouchable
