And yea, Yakupov will get 6 million as well. It'll be well worth it. We (and other NW division fans) know what we have.
Yes we do. You have an incredibly fast and skill team that has great individual talent. However as a team you lack in many areas. My only issue if you also sign Nail and Schultz to large contracts is you have a core of players taking up a significant portion of your cap that have a very similar skill set. Its great to have these players and any team would want them, however to have a team of only fast, skill players would worry me.
