Should we offer Skinner a Jordan Staal Contract?

As most of you are probably aware, Jordan Staal was signed to a 10 year, 60 million dollar contract with a flat rate of 6 million a year- a steal for a "top 15 player". This deal takes Jordan to age 33, and makes him the de facto franchise player after Eric.

My question to you is: should we offer Skinner a similar 10 year, 60 million dollar contract before the CBA creates such long contracts illegal?

Skinner
GP: 146
G: 51
A: 56
P: 107

Calder Trophy winner, one of 6 players after the lockout to score 50 before 20th birthday, one of few players to score 30 as an 18 year old. Is just coming off of a season riddled with concussions after playing at a 40 goal pace for the first 30~ games of the year.

60M seems a little high. If they can get him signed to a long term deal around 5m per I'd be thrilled.

He won't get 10 years because of the new CBA, but something like 7yrs//35m or 5yrs//25m depending on what the new max length is, I'd be all over in a heartbeat.

I'd like to see something around James Neal's contract, probably slightly lower on the dollar amount.

I'd be happy with something like 6 years 5.25 per.

I just hope Rutherford is able to lock him up this offseason so there isn't any drama next year.

I'm fine with waiting on Skinner. Even if 10 year deals are outlawed in the next CBA, there will be a reasonable max (7 or 8 years.)

I think that's still a reasonable length of time for Skinner when the time comes to lock him up.

I say lock everybody up before the 20% rollback that's coming.

No, because he's not anywhere near as good as Jordan and never will be.

I wouldn't put Skinner on a long-term contract of that nature. Too much chance of injury slowing him down and making us regret it.

Agreed. He could become Shane Willis for all we know.

A lot of players in the league could suffer a major injury and not have it dramatically affect their game.

Those players are not waterbug goal scorers.

Dumb reason not to sign him. You see a wealth of top-6 players on our roster?

I agree. Lock up Skinner now, we really can't afford not to. We have a chance to do something this year, with the addition of Jordan Staal.

We don't need uncertainty with another one of our core players. We don't need a disgruntled Skinner, we don't need any distractions.

Lock him up and move forward. With Eric being motivated (hopefully) for the entire season, Jordan coming aboard, what I predict will be a breakout year for Jiri (I say 30 goals), and Skinner signed long-term, we can maybe go on a run here.

If not, next year we sign another top-6 player and reload, try again.

We don't have the luxury of toying around with Skinner and his contract. Just get it done.

If he has another 30-30 season this year, sure.

This season will determine what kind of contract he gets. I think it's more likely JR overpays to keep him here than anything else though.

Skinner's skillset is such that his continued production isn't the uncertain mystery that a lot of more generic players are.

Despite being 'riddled' with concussions.

I agree with this. I think he earns a Staal11 kind of contract only with continued production, but not before proving that. If he doesn't, then I think he can be signed for significantly less next off-season.

If you want a more comparable contract, look at Eric Staal's first post-ELC contract: 3 years, $4M, $4.5M, $5M. Then he signed the 7 year deal. Jordan's 10 year deal bought out 10 UFA years.
