If the cap goes up as expected Arnott will likely fetch more than $3.5 million per. I expect Arnott to ask for a similar contract as Olli Jokinen (four years, just over $5 million per season).
Olli Jokinen - 27 years old, 69 points in 63 games
Jason Arnott - 31 years old, 60 points in 63 games
I'm not saying he'll get Jokinen money but I def. think he ask for it. Should be interesting to see what the Stars do with Arnott and Willie Mitchell this off-season. Rumor is Mitchell turned down $3.5 million per from the Wild. I would love to sign Mitchell and keep him on our blueline for a few years.
