There's a lot of assumption and avs fan logic there.

Im sure he'd love to go to arbitration (with them) after the signing of Duchene and Landeskog, as well as many other new, high contracts for younger players. Including his own. At this point, he'd probably not only get the $6.5, but through arbitration, he'd get it on a one year deal and he'd walk for nothing soon after he takes a second one year deal the following season, due to being butt hurt by the organization. If you think your scenario is a real option, you better hope he has a terrible season.

Avs fan needs to take a seat in the press box and actually look at their situations from another perspective that doesnt have blind fandom written all over it. I swear you guys come up with these crazy strategies you're going to use on your players and then you sell the bill of goods to everyone else thinking they're just as blind, using the, "you dont watch him like us" angle.
