This is one of the hardest to figure for me.

I'm fine with a bridge contract, and if he plays to a max future contract, so be it.

Something like $4.0m then $4.5m with bonuses? More than he's worth but given the market and the cap wouldn't be insane.

I also think we need to try to hold onto puck-moving defencemen. I realize that's "don't eat the yellow snow" advice, but if he becomes something like Keith Yandle for us, that's pretty valuable.

If you look at the number of truly great defencemen around the league, it's half-2/3 of Sweden's Olympic team, all of Canada's, and half of the US team.
