Not to mention if Scrivens/Reimer (one or both) can be lights out this season, we can sell ourselves HARD as a team that may realistically be able to compete sooner rather than later.
If they wanted to take a discount to play together, you are looking at 7.5 minimum. I still think that would be unlikely. Parise/Suter got that on a 10+ year term. I think it will take 8 for us to sign both.
