5 years- (8.4 per)
6 years- (7.0 per)
7 years- (6.0 per)
8 years- (5.3 per)

Any average per year above these numbers would result in us landing 4 1sts. Obviously, we would accept 5.3 per year over the 4 1sts, as is the case with 6.0 and possibly 7.0. At which numbers would you guys be tempted to take the 4 1st rather than Petro?
The answer should be none. This team NEEDS to win now, not 4 years from now which is what would happen if they let him walk via offer sheet. Any offer sheet that he tries to sign must be matched.
