Flippula won't be #1 center for at least 2 more years (Z would be still #1).
Flippula's career high is based on him playing winger not a center.
Zajac means a lot more to the NJ than Flippula means to us.
I agree with that. And Zajac is from a neutral POV getting paid more than his services, but NJ fans seem thrilled.
Fil has a big half-season ahead where he'll be the star on his line and play at center. He'll be playing for the big bucks too, but ultimately I see his cap hit more in the Kronwall territory if he's re-signed. Right in the middle of Z and Mule $.
