I say this as a compliment to him though. He is playing so well that he deserves a good contract and term but that contract and term for him just doesn't fit on this team.
He loves Edmonton, and his girlfriend (of 4 years) just got in the residency program (2 years) at the U of A.
I hope there will be Give and Take.
17th points center
top 5 PK for Centers
top 5 Pp for Centers.
Apples to apples
top 70 scoring centers.
one of 10 centers top 20/70 in Hits, Blocks, Takeaways.
So the centers
scoring center top 20
you look at centers with like production results they are in the 3.75-4.5M range.
hit the UFA market and it is 5.25M
2 arbitration years likely at 4M and 4 years of bought out ufa years @ 5.25M
4.75-4.875M is not unresonable.
The successful cap structure for playoff team forwards.
18M for your top 3 Forwards.
14.5M for your 4-7 forwards
6.7M for final 7 forwards.
this years level of cap would add 6M for the forward group.
