I think we can all agree on that. $42 million is not the number.
It's the number that you start with....maybe. I don't know the true facts here. I do know you start high and then you haggle...really hard.
I also know that any GM wants this guy on their team and in their locker room and on the ice in any number of key situations. The reasons for that will be clear for at least the next few seasons.
If we signed him for $38 - $40 and we won even one cup, it would be worth it. That's not even including the benefit this guy could be to this organization far into the future.
Bottom line: He's a winner and great leader. If it's reasonable then it's doable. I'd bend the time space continuum to keep him here.
