1. How much?
I think that we do not have chance to get him under 5M. Otherwise he is taking us to arbitration and walk away as a UFA in 2014
2. How Long?
I think he is not going to accept less than 5 years
3. Should we trade him
I don't think so. He can be excelent number 2 center in the contending team. Only way we will trade him is if he asks Eberle and Hall equivalent money.
conclusion 5M for 5-6 years is optimal
Horcoff Sr. would approve of that contract.
