Obviously how he plays this year will be a big factor, but it will be an interesting negotiation none-the-less.

Is it a one year contract that allows Bogo to prove what he can do over a full season? Is it a long term contract? If it's the latter, what kind of numbers should we expect? Obviously I'm pulling for Bogo to play lights out when he gets back but if he struggles somewhat, the silver lining for the organization is that they might be able to lock him up at a very reasonable price. Again, let me re-iterate that I AM NOT HOPING FOR THIS!

Say he comes back and puts up 10 points in 30 games and plays just below how he played last year defensively -- would 5 or 6 years at $4m per be out of the question?

Worst case scenario would be a 2 year deal which would take him to UFA status. Chevy needs to sign him to a 1 year deal or lock him up as long as possible IMO.
I'm not one to want to offer a long term reward contract off of shortened sample size but I think Bogosian is an exception.

He always has had big promise. He really started showing what he could do last year, and that was all along playing with a pretty significant injury.

Bogosian tops out as a very rare type of NHL player, one that isn't easy to replace. He loves Winnipeg, he has an amazing personality and is very community minded. He is also very big into fitness.

I have no doubt the Jets will offer him a long term contract. Like I am going to say 100% guarantee unless something devastating happens.
