Let's get serious, his comparables are guys like Josi (4M), Voynov (4.166M), Yandle (5.25M), Kronwall (4.75M), Erhoff (4M), and so on.

So the range is fairly well established at between 4-5.25M depending on the player's value to their team, performance in the contract year, etc.

This is the 2nd tier, which is where Schultz belongs. They Oilers should try to lock him in for 6-8 (max) years at around a 4.25M cap hit.

6M is for guys who have Norris winning or nominated seasons. Even then, some teams probably regret giving that hefty a pay day to their players (Mike Green for instance is more like a 5.25M player than a 6.1M player).

If Schultz has a 15-35-50 PTS, -5, 12 PIMS, 20:00 MINS/GM that still doesn't justify a 6M contract.

On a shorter term deal, I would actually hold the line at 3M. Subban is on a two-year deal for under 3M AVV ffs.
