We have a lot of of money tied up on the wings and we're going to have a lot of kids looking for wing spots after next season.
I want him to do well, but I do want to see what he does before penciling in a $5 million cap hit for another two or three years.
I don't think any talks about extending him happen until late in the season. I agree. While he seemed to have something left in the tank at the end of last season, there is a point where age begins to start showing. I think MSL has a couple years left in the league, but can't say at what level he will be playing when he finishes, and perhaps the offer price is less than his current pay. We will see. Way to early to discuss, I hope.
