The crucial point is term. Money/cap hit comes second. Anything more than 5 years would make me cringe. His departure from Boston should indicate why a longer commitment will be ill advised.

Also I wouldn`t call Kessel a playmaker. He is a pretty good passer and has creative vision on the offensive side of things - BUT Kessel doesn`t run, control or structures the game of his team. He lacks the needed intangiables/grit/leadership for that.

For players to earn top $$ they have to primary and not secondary pieces. IMO
That`s the essential question Nonis has to ask himself. Is an elite secondary piece worth that money and do we have alternative options? IMO the latter aspect almost guarantees Phil Kessel a contract (mostly on his terms). I dont like it yet that`s my guess.
