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.
I'd pay Clifford 2M. He's not there to score points, but the fact that he can score a little just shows a bit of a well-rounded game. That should be worth something in this league. It certainly is to me.
