5x5 w/NTC is my guess..He took a "cut" his last deal.A 2.2mil raise isnt out of the question..Besides, Logan isn't looking to break the bank, not his style. When Juicy turns 28/29 then he'll get the 6mil+ pay day that he will more than likely have earned..This is still "JT's team" and Couture wont make more than JT, yet..
He'll probably be asking for more than that; something along the lines of ~$6M
And he deserves it...I'm hoping that DW will go the long term route w/ Couture and give him the same deal (or something very close) as Jeff Skinner or Jordan Eberle, both are pretty good comparables. Considering who Couture's agent is I'd imagine this is going to be a pretty easy one for DW.
I'd be willing to get they're also negotiating an extension with Pavelski as well - if they can get those two locked up long term for less then $12mil total I'd be absolutely thrilled!!
Good to hear. Gotta wonder if it means a vet could be on the way out though.
Not needed this year, but it is obvious one of (if not more) thornton, markeau, boyle, pavs will be gone in 2014-15 season when the contracts expire. If couture gets anything more then 5.5 good bye marleau or thornton i believe.
Boyle in my opinion is 100% gone either this offseason or next year at the deadline or they just let him walk.
