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?
Eddie you wrote that "Based on O'Reilly's demands, Landeskog should already be paid as much as O'Reilly does."

Let's say ROR sign a 5M+ salary (which btw i agree is too much) how does that affects Landeskog right now??
