Bingo, it's tough to compare a deal signed that long ago\not subject to the current market inflation to one signed today.

Wayne Simmonds is probably the best, most recent comparable...he got 6 years, but essentially the same caphit. He scores a little less than Hornqvist, hits a little more, but they're effectively similar players.

Like I said...players get paid for goals in this league..Hornqvist has been our most consistent goalscorer for the past several years. He may be one dimensional, but that's a dimension that's very valuable to us.
