I wouldn't)for 8 years, taking him to 36 years old, where you can front load a contract following these simple rules: 35% year to year rule + the 50% of lowest to highest.

Still a better outcome than this stupid bridge contract shenanigans.
It doesn't matter... it's another false objection.

So he's 28 when we have to renew him, doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Sooner or later you have to renew the guy as a UFA. Whether he's 28 or 30 or whatever...

Bottom line is we're going to pay more over the long run than we otherwise would've. Folks can try to dress it up however they wish, it doesn't make any difference. All we can do now is hope that MB learns from this and doesn't try the same crap with Galchenyuk.
