We need to get that short term contract out of our minds. I have no issues paying him 24-28 million over 4 years.

You'll probably see those back loaded contract come to an end, unless you are the Rangers or Toronto. A lot of financial risk if they pull a Kipper and retire. I only say that because those 7 year deals to get them to 40+ are probably going to become a lot more rare.

Biggest issue with his existing contract is that you were paying 10 million per over the next 3 seasons on top of the financial concerns if he retires early, otherwise there might have been teams interested in a trade.
