AAV at 3.075 is a win for Sather based on comparables so for arguments sake I am going to say that Stepan conceded total dollars and Sather concded structure as the cap will go up and the team will have more room in 2 seasons.
This is part of the negotiations that take place. Give in one area to get in another taking furture conditions into consideration.
We don't even know how the deal is structured yet is my point regarding the QO. I agree that 3.075 AAV is favorable for Sather.
But after the long calm, there are now beginnings of a stir. The reunion at hand may joy, it may bring fear. But let us embrace whatever it brings. For they are coming back. At last, the promise has been made.
