Or do you expect him to take whatever the Avs offer just because he will be a RFA?

As i said in my post, 5M+ is too much, i agree. But what Landeskog has to do with it??
What does Landeskog have to do with it???

When players come up for contract extensions, the absolute first thing that agents look at is...
1- How theyve compared to their teammates
2- How vital are they to their team (ie. depth, what role in the following seasons will they have)
3- Other comparable RFA contracts.

Because the avs have so many players who are generally in the same age category and contract status, all of their contracts become comparables.

If you sign ROR to 5M+, he instantly becomes the salary comparable for all forwards on the team.

If ROR does not continue his upward offensive trend, or gulp, possibly decreases it, how do you pay your other forwards accordingly?
