$6M is a little steep, but the market is definitely inflated and young players are getting paid big time early.
they are just getting paid what they are worth as opposed to 10-15 years ago when RFAs got 50% of their worth and UFAs got 2x worth. I have no problem with doing it this way, players in their prime should get paid prime dollars.
Watching that goal against Chicago still brings chills and a little tear of joy to my eye. I've watched it probably close to 100 times but it doesn't get old. One of the biggest goals in Canuck history imo.
That's not my point. People around here continue to ignore what Gillis is doing when talking about what these guys are going to sign for, including your assessment of Edler's contract. I'm actually a little surprised he went above 4m but better 4.5m than 5yrs or more.
If you are surprised than Burr got $4M+ then you really, really need to re-evaluate what you think you know. The same likely goes for every other Canucks deal. Take what you think is right and add 500-800K and you'll probably be ok.
