I would be very surprised if Leclaire garnered less than 5 million. The question remains however, are the Blue Jackets prepared to give him that much? They aren't any NHL-ready prospects in the system in goal after him, although Mason could be a starter in 3-4 years, but that remains to be seen.

I don't think Columbus can afford to let him go.

Bang on, we're talking about a guy who led the league in shutouts, and has a very bright future ahead of him. Anyone who thinks he'll sign for 4 million is crazy, it will be 5-6 million, especially with the cap going up.

IMO, this is the only area on the team where we can't afford to not over pay.

I've been called worse...

Look, Leclaire has had one decent season and even that was ended due to injury. I love the dude and think he is an essential part of the CBJ near future but the dude still has alot to prove... If he wants 6 million then his head is the biggest part of his body... 4 mln per for 3 years is fair until he proves he can win in the playoffs... (assuming he can last that long in one season).

The problem, Robert, is you're arguing like a GM at an arbitration. There's a whole other side to the issue--the player's side--that could easily make you open your wallet.

I've heard "he's only had one good year" often enough to know that it's not often the defining factor when it comes to how much a player will get. When someone shows as much potential as Leclaire did last season, he gets paid for his potential (just like Nash did).

4M minimum. He is a franchise goaltender and will be paid like one.

I would like a five year deal for just under $4 million a year, but it is going to be a 3 year deal for $4-5 million.
