5 Million +: Seguin [email protected], Skinner [email protected], O'Reilly [email protected], Benn [email protected], Zajac [email protected], Neal [email protected], Grabovski [email protected], Lupul [email protected], E.Kane [email protected]

4-5 Million: Marchand [email protected], Ruutu [email protected], Umberger [email protected], Cole [email protected], Versteeg [email protected], Fleschmann [email protected], Pacioretty [email protected] (steal), Hornqvist [email protected], Callahan [email protected], Voracek [email protected], Hartnell [email protected], Oshie [email protected], Backes [email protected], Purcell [email protected], JVR [email protected], Burrows [email protected], Laich [email protected]

4 Million or less: Parenteau [email protected], Williams [email protected], Okposo [email protected], Turris [email protected], Simmons [email protected], Perron [email protected].

I am predicting [email protected] Million for Gagner. A bit higher than we would like but he does have quite a lot of leverage.
Those comparables are all over the map.

I highly doubt he gets anything near $5M to be honest.

I'm really hoping on him signing in the lower-tier range with the Perrons and Turris'. Maybe he's a guy that drinks the kool-aid. I'm sure if he did, he'd get a little more respect around here.
