His type of player (elite puckmover) is:
1) At a premium in todays' NHL
2) Slow to develop, and going with NCAA over the Juniors/AHL route did him no favors on the ice.
The other issue is how we acquired him sets the table for future contract negotiations. We've already been through one UFA-style negotiation with him.
I'd like to see the Oilers get creative on his contract. Maybe give him a 4 year escalating deal starting at $3M and ending at $6M.
Plus it seems obvious that we really need better players - both forwards and defensemen - to develop him to his potential.
