I root for this guy alot and he will get alot of money on his new contract. Im not sure if he is worth 5 but teams are willing to pay him that for sure. I hope he resigns with the Devils simply because they gave him his chance.
Yes, he is performing better than Lucic right now but that is not to say Lucic didnt earn his contract. 5 Mill for 2 years to see if he can keep up this pace, if he can he will be worth the 6 mill Lucic is getting. (if Lucic is getting 6 mill... pretty sure it is though)
I voted yes because I think he could get 5 mil a year on the open market. It's amazing, i always looked at him as a slightly more talented version of Matt Martin. But over the years he's gotten so much better he looks like Lucic out there. Still, I would be more comfortable paying him 4 mil per. I could see him coming back down to Earth at some point.
