With better linemates, sure. I just don't see the cutthroat urgency in him to make him a point per game style winger. He is very talented and plays well away from the puck, so I think he is easily worth $4 mil a year. Whether or not Boedker wants to sign for six years is another story. I think the OEL deal works in our favor there. Do not underestimate the appeal of term versus raw salary for players that aren't surefire stars. Guaranteed money is always better than money that never materializes. Ask any NFL player.
