Better treat them right, or you can kiss them goodbye as soon as they hit UFA. And kiss those "hometown discounts" goodbye too.
I'm not sure hometown discounts have existed for awhile. Z and Franzen's cap hits are low because of term. Kindl and Smith seemed to get pretty fair deals. Kronwall might have left some money on the table though I'm not sure how much. Howard's deal is fair.

Rather than looking for a hometown discount, I think the best bet is looking to make deals similar to Kronwall's last one - over pay early in the hope you get to underpay late.
