O2K is Stepan's agency

Eustace King is the main agent

TJ Oshie. Tyler Ennis. Wayne Simmonds. Chris Stewart. Those players signed short term contracts coming out of entry level. Oshie signed a 1 year deal. The others signed 2 year deals. Under $3M. Scott Hartnell. Jason Garrison.

Logan Couture got 2 years/$5.75M in 2012. James Neal got 2 years/$5.75M in 2010. Same deal as Stewart in 2010. The value didn't change from the 2010 to 2012. The cap was $59.4M in 2010. $70.2M in 2012. $64.3M in 2013.

That should be Stepan's high side. 2 years/$5.75M. $2.875M.

Matt Duchene got 2 years/$7M as his 2nd contract but he was the 3rd pick overall in 2009. John Tavares got 6 years and $33M for a 2nd contract. Duchene signed a 5 year extension worth $30M which begins 14-15. Those guys had high cap hits with their performance bonuses starting in entry level.
