Get out in front of the PR nightmare that is bound to happen when he is traded.
5 years at 6 per is more than reasonable for Callahan. MORE THAN REASONABLE
Him demanding 7 years is not reasonable for the team. The style he plays means that even at 5 years he's going to be less than useful after the 4th season. He wants to make sure he's got the remaining 3 years and 18 million in his pocket.
No problem with this tweet on any level.
More than reasonable is being generous.
It's an overpayment by about $1.5M. As someone else said, he is barely worth his contract now. Signing Callahan to a 5 year $30 million deal will lead to the fan base hating him.
No one will put up with a $6M forward made of glass that puts up 40 points. It's a massive overpayment.
