I wouldn't have a problem bringing him back on just a one year deal. He would still be an RFA after next year in that scenario. He's still a guy I'd like to have in an ideal world but money is everything for this franchise and Berglund is what he is at this point: a 3rd line center playing a line too high whose PPG in the two years after he signed his second contract in 2011 is less than the two years before he signed.
3 years, 9 mil would be my offer for any type of deal with some term...2.75, 3, 3.25. That might even be slightly high.
In the arbitration scenario, the reality is that he would probably be dealt.
