Hopefully not too much above league minimum. Skinner needs serious work on pretty much all aspects of hockey other than puckhogging and diving.

31 and 20 goals in his first two season in the NHL. How many of those types of players earn 'not too much above league minimum' on an extension?

I know 29 other teams who would love to have that diving puckhog for a lot more than league minimum.

I'm pretty sure the puckhog/diving comment was meant to be a joke/sarcastic.. seems too obvious.

It's unrealistic of me to expect it, sure, but he's not really worth much more. He scores a lot of goals, but needs to be sheltered away from tough competition because he's terrible defensively, takes tons of bad penalties, doesn't utilize his linemates, and spent the entirety of his time after his concussion crying every time he got hit.

Lots of players would score 20 goals if they refused to share the puck or put in any effort defensively. Doesn't make them good hockey players.

Gotta be less. I think he gets a flat 5 million over 6 years.

Can't trust it until someone from TSN tweets it.
