Logan Couture is a decent comparable to Evander Kane, no? Couture got a 2 year deal worth 5.75m coming off of his ELC.

The difference is one was a bridge deal only eating up RFA years, and the other is a (potential) 6 year deal eating up 2 UFA years.

This is a bad deal for Kane in terms of $$.

Should be 6 years, 35 million

Based on comparable players, I agree. However, the cap and player salaries continue to go up.

While the offer sheets need to exist, they should be used, not abused.
If you have a situation like what the Knicks had with Jeremy Lin, and they didn't attempt to initially set the market price for him, and they stupidly told him, see what offers you get, then they deserve what they got.

I can understand how some strategy is justified, though the crap pulled in Philly (front loaded terms of package) for Weber seems a bit excessive, IMO.

Each team knows the rough line they have to hold a guy, at what number he is better off keeping and using, or better off swapping for overpayment in assets.

That's what we have here.
The lower the # Kane is truly happy with, the better the chance for the Jets (or any original club), to keep their guy; but the more he wants, going over time, the more at some point it may pay to move him.

However, that is probably WAY too early for Kane now.
If I'm him I do a successive increase over 2-3 yrs, then look for HUGE payday.

Jets don't have to deal with huge payday now, but be aware of it later.
