To me, there are very few players in the NHL deserving of a max years contract. It's too risky. However, Bogosian is a no brainer for max contract offer. He is really starting to exhibit his pedigree on a night in night out basis. We saw 'offensive Bogo' for the first time really in Winnipeg last game, and it gave me chills. He loves Winnipeg, has a house here. He is a fitness freak and he is just a great team and community guy.

I don't know about dollars yet but I think the Jets try and lock him up long term.

Edit: I apologise if my man crush on Bogosian invaded the Wheeler thread. I agree that a 4 year deal is best for Blake, somewhere around 4.5 per.
