I think the Marc Staal deal will be the benchmark, although I'd like to see something closer to 8 years as long as we're eating up all his RFA years anyways.

I'd be upset if we didn't lock him up for 6+ years. I imagine the Sabres front office wants him signed as long as possible, so if we weren't able to do that, it would surprise me. Something like 9 years, 49.5mil would be nice.

Has been my stance all along. Give him the same deal Keith got, just shave a few hundred K off each season.

12 years, 60 million? He'd still be able to get another contract after that.

Drew Doughty apparently waiting for Kings to make the next move

Don Meehan, one of the free-agent defenseman's representatives, says he hasn't spoken to the Kings about Doughty since June 23. The team is believed to be offering nine years at more than $6.5 million per year.

Not sure about the how much part, but how long? 10-15 years, I'd say.

I actually like the 3 year, 14-15 million range. If he get's a norris nomination, or hell, wins one in the next 3 years, ok, let's talk 8-10 year contracts. I love Myers. I just don't see the wisdom in handing out 8+ year contracts to a 21 year old at this point.

It depends how good he is next year. If he has another season like this year I'd say Johnson is a better benchmark. Johnson was signed at about 30 over 7 years. If he becomes a true #1 guy then it will be more like what Doughty ends up making.

I know we'd all love to lock up Myers now, but if I were Darcy I'd wait a little bit. Start talking with him know to get a ballpark idea of what he's looking for, and then come December or so I'd try and get him signed. This way you have a few months of the season to judge his play. Yes a front loaded long term contract with a cap hit around $5 mil or less would be great, but I wouldn't give him one just yet. He may have won the Calder, but let's forget that he hasn't accomplish a whole lot else yet, which is fine as he's still young, but that's just something to keep in mind when talking about his next contract. Let's not forget how poorly he started off last season. He still has a lot to prove.

I can see the Sabres waiting further into the summer before finalizing anything on Myers' extension but it will likely be a result of finishing all of the current RFA and AHL contracts as a more urgent priority.

I doubt they let Myers' situation drag into the season - and I doubt even more that they would hedge their bets on what they offer based on how he plays. He's proven what he's capable of and will only get better - and while he did start off last season horribly, he was close to his Calder form in the second half of the season. There's no reason to second-guess what kind of player he'll be or how important he'll be to the Sabres IMO.

The CBA expires after this season. Myers next deal may be the last opportunity to sign him to long-term, cap-friendly, front loaded contract. It's a loophole the league would like to close.

Not sure I follow - do you mean signing players to extensions before their current contract expires? Or are you referring to the 'loophole' that allows front-loaded contracts?

99% sure he means front loaded.

Doughty closing in on a deal with LAK? Could be a decent barometer for Myers' contract, I'd think.

Bucky's take:

Quote:
Shea Weber's $7.5 million arbitration award gives some idea how much money it would cost the Sabres to lock Tyler Myers into a long-term deal. Weber is the best defenseman in the NHL, with apologies to Nicklas Lidstrom.

Myers isn't going to get Weber money, but you can expect him to collect about $6 million a year when his contract expires after the upcoming season. The smart play would be getting his deal completed before or early in the season before he gains more leverage. A five-year deal for $30 million makes sense for a young franchise defenseman who could become their captain.

Quote:
SPECTOR’S NOTE: If the Sabres were still owned by Thomas Golisano, I’d say we’d have to brace ourselves for difficult negotiations between Myers and the Sabres. Not this time. While it remains to be seen how much the Sabres will pay to lock Myers into a new deal, rest assured they’ll have little qualms with, say, $6 million per season, especially if he continues to develop into their franchise defenseman. As for when negotiations occur, it doesn’t appear as though GM Darcy Regier will open talks now, though one shouldn’t rule out the possibility of a re-signing at some point in the season. Uncertainty over the next CBA could also be a factor

They need to go longer term to the cap hit down around 4.5 - 5, IMO

A guy Myers' age isn't going to accept throwaway years like Ehrhoff. On a 10-year deal Myers would still be in his prime years when it expired. They can front-load a little in with signing bonuses before the CBA expires, but you're not going to see 1-1-1 at the tail.

Didn't he also predict Stafford would make over 5.5 million? I remember the guys on WGR talking about that before he signed for only 4.

Myers isn't getting 6 million a season. Both Weber and Doughty are better then he is.

Well... With Weber getting 7.5mil, and reports of Doughty offered OVER 6.5mil, for Myers a cap hit of 6mil. for contract longer than 6 years is absolutely possible and probable and in the final 3rd of his contract 6mil. cap hit isn't going to be as restrictive as the first 2/3rds with salary cap increasing over that time.
