Best Guess: no more than 4 years at no more than $4 mil. At the end of the day, any payment would still be based on potential. I love his game and I honestly believe he's the future up front, but can't pay for potential with long term commitments to Henrik, Girardi, Richards, Nash and likely Staal.
Too many other guys to sign to not sign Kreider to a 2 year bridge deal. When a player is oozing with realized talent at a young age like Mcdonagh Sather will sometimes skip the bridge deal. He did the same with Lundqvist.
