A good player for sure, but especially with his concussion history, I'd say $4.5M for 3 to 4 years max. Any more and we'd just be making a blunder out of desperation. That's my view from watching him during the Bruins cup run and nothing of him since.
He may be not better than another Ladd, but I like the idea of:

Ladd - Little - Wheeler

...then...

Kane - Joker - Horton

or

Kane - Scheifele - Horton

or

Kane - Burmi - Horton

...better than any of our current options.
