Kessel and Vanek will each get at least $7.0M-$7.5M. Let alone a center like Thorton, even at an advancing age.
Top players always get paid good money regardless it's the average and secondary players that are demanding these ridiculous deals. Makes it hard to get good value out of them in the future.

Lockout countdown.
