Magnus' next contract?

What do you think he's worth? I'm kinda thinking 1.5M for 2 years.

Thoughts?

When is his contract up?

After this year there's no way he should be over 2 until he can prove that he's getting his game back through another couple seasons.

End of this season.

1.5 is a little high honestly. He has taken a step forward this year, but his offense is still extremely underwhelming. On pace for what... 25 points in an 82 game season?

That cream puff hits more than Horcoff. We're getting rid of him too right?

I'm a big Magnus fan. He's taken a positive step forward this year. As long as we're not overpaying for his services, I want to hold onto him.

At the moment I believe he's making $900k with a potential $625 in bonuses.

I'd keep it low, he has started to slip into not engaging as much as he should physically again. If he wants a big payday he needs to be consistent and play more aggressive.

I would like something in the 1-1.25 range, but 1.5 is fair IMO for Magnus.

Hopefully it is nothing over 2 Mil/Year

Anything 1.5 million and over and the Oilers get taken to the cleaners. He's not prime for a potential type contract, he isn't doing anything right now that gives him bargaining power, and he hasn't been around long enough to get a "what you've done in the past" type contract.

This is the type of player you lean on when it comes to a contracts in the NHL. Hell, he wouldn't make the starting roster of most of the teams in the NHL yet, you simply don't open the vault for that.

I am a big Magnus fan, he is my second favorite oiler behind Yak. So I would offer him a little more.
2 yrs-4.5m - 2.25 per yr
3 yrs -6 m - 2 per yr

Gives him time to prove he is worth more on his next contract. If not the oilers are in it for 2-3 yrs at a lower end cap hit.

1.25 M for 2

He only does two things well: skate and defend, which without any physicality (and he has nothing despite his size), makes him a 3rd liner on a non-playoff team. Magnus embodies what is wrong with the Oilers.... incredibly easy to play against. And part of the reason he's turned out this way is he's surrounded by marshmallows.

I wouldn't trade him, I'd fix the team first and see if he can evolve. But for the love of god do not over pay this guy who plays so small.

I'm going to say a QO, which is 990k. He had a good 3 week stretch a while back, but still doesn't engage physically or drive to the net consistently enough. Why would we reward inconsistency with a multi year deal? Might cost us more next year, but I'm OK with that if I know what I have at that time.

This guy gets it.

I was stoked when we drafted Paajarvi, but he has disappointed me big time.

What are you guys talking about?

Magnus and Gagner are going to get matching 7 year, 6 million dollar contracts.

yeah paajarvi is just fine as a 3rd line winger right now, and he should only get better... swedish players are well known to take a bit longer in adapting to the NA style of game if they didn't play junior over here.... paajarvi is slowly learning

as long as he comes in around 1-1.25 or so, i think on a 2-3 year "bridge" deal would be a good idea... i would expect that he signs something similar to that

2 years at 2 million per. Honestly though, he has been our best forward outside of Hall and Yak for the last 20 games, so he may ask for more.

It will be a 1-2 year bridge contract. 1- 1.2M cap hit is my guess.
