Very hard to predict because he is a bit older and has had a rougher time adjusting to the NHL. But that is most likely because he was thrown to the wolves on a bad defensive team

He has consistanly put up decent points even with playing bad defensively, and not looking super dangerous offensively like he did in the AHL

Right not he is worth 3 mil for the next 2 seasons, and probably should get a bridge contract. The problem is, if he continues to progress and put up more and more points, he could be asking for 6 mil in 2 years (better play + rising cap)

I would be ok with offering a risky contract which would be 4.75 * 5-6 years. Right now its an overpayment by about 1.5 million for 1 or 2 years, would be fair value for 2 years, and then could potentially be great value in the future when the cap is higher and comparables are making 6 - 6.5 million

I think his agent would take it as its guartneed money for a good term
