I could see him easily getting this via unrestricted free agency but he's restricted. Nystrom only got that contract because there were a number of bidders - there's a reason why Gordon's $3M he earned from us is by far the most he has ever had in his career.

14 points in the shortened season pro-rates out to a 23 point season. If 23 points in the NHL gets you $2.1M as a restricted free agent - yikes! TJ Galiardi just scored 14 points in 12 less games and signed for $1.25M. Clifford should be shooting for $1.2M on a short-term contract or $1.5M on a longer one.
