Fowler had a really bad year last season so i can see performance lowering his value.

Shattenkirk could easily get more, i'm going to assume that he took a pay cut to stay with the Blues and play on a cup contender. Again.. assuming is the key word here.

Carlson is a prime example of why you would want a bridge deal if you were in his shoes. With the cap going up and his very good play this season, Washington is getting a top defenseman at a discount price. He could easily get 6 million as a free agent this summer. If not more if it was a long term deal. IMO, he's leaving 2 million on the table every year until that contract is over. Over 4-5 years that's 8 to 10 million. If i was an agent i would want 10% of that extra 10 million.

Same goes for Alzner.
