Leon Draisaitl Contract Talk

With the news on McDavid today, seems like enough discussion going on in all the threads that this probably deserves its own thread.

I'd aim for a 3 year bridge deal to keep the dollars reasonable.

Agreed.

If McDavid is coming at 13+ Leon needs to take at least a minor "hometown" deal.

7.29 for 8 years would be what I hope for. The pipe dream he signs for less than 7 unfortunately looks like it is sailing away.

I knew Draisaitl's agent would be a *****
If Draisaitl wants to stay here he should hire a new agent. Otherwise, he's out of here

I'd do a 7.75 million dollar x 8 year deal...both Drai and Connor signed for a combined 21 million

get it done Chia

Leon just hasn't done enough to prove he's a 9 million dollar player. I hope this doesn't happen. If he can center his own line and score 80 points doing that, maybe.

Try for a reasonable AAV. If you can't get there, bridge him instead.

There's simply not a reasonable enough sample of him producing like a star player without a better star player on his line:

15/16:
With Hall: 2.80 GF/60
Without Hall: 1.50 GF/60

16/17:
With McDavid: 3.67 GF/60
Without McDavid: 2.28 GF/60

I agree with this. We have an extra RFA year on Draisaitl. We should be taking advantage of it.

Exactly, such a large payout for a small sample size... We can't afford to get handcuffed with contracts. I think we are better off with flexibility going forward... I don't think teams can win anymore with two contracts like this.. not easily at least and we certainly don't have the prospect pool to support it. There's enough decent players we can sign who will want to come here and trade for to put a deeper team around McDavid. I'd rather do that than pay a guy a huge salary for one good year of play.

I think the Oilers would love to do that. There is no way that Chiarelli is anywhere near certain in regards to what he has in Drai.

The problem--and probably the ONLY reason we are talking about 9mil AAV--is because of the threat of dumb teams (like Montreal) offer sheeting him.

Let them do it and let's take the picks. Then sign some decent players who would love to come here and play with McDavid and roll on with tons of assets. That to me is a better situation then having to dump talent every year to keep an overpaid player on the roster.

It's not going to happen, but if a team really wants to pay him 9.8 - the number that they should stop matching - I'm all for 4 first round picks. Pretty easy to turn around and put together a package for Matt Duchene with some of that.

Take the four first rounders and use the cap space elsewhere in trades/free agency. He isn't worth anywhere near 9.8 million.

Draisaitl knows he's in a position of weakness having only been elite for one of his 3 years, and that year can be argued to be him being the beneficiary of McD. If he hit the ground running like Connor did, he'd be able to argue a 9/10m deal. I see him taking 8x8. I also doubt PC would lock up Kris Russell if he didn't already have Draisaitl locked down, and if he wanted a ridiculous number the contract wouldn't be good to go for July 1st like it appears to be.

What do we do if someone sends him a 9.6M offersheet, worth 2 1st's, a 2nd, and 3rd?

The offersheet talk is silly. I can't believe Ryan Rishaug is dumb enough to even float the possibility.

A team would be trading 4 first round picks and 10m in cap space for a dude with one elite season on the wing of the best offensive player in the world. I'm not sure a worse move has ever been made by an NHL GM.

The way I see it, there are 4 teams who could benefit from a Leon Draisaitl offer sheet who have the space.

MONTREAL - Desperate to win now, in desperate need of a 1C, might lose Radulov to UFA status, have been looking to deal Galchenyuk after he couldn't play C.

ARIZONA - Bold young GM who isn't looking to make friends necessarily, team in need of a high profile star, division rival

CAROLINA - Franchise in need of a No.1 C and a star to market around, former Oilers in management (Rick Olczyk).

SAN JOSE - Might lose Big Joe + Marleau, yet have enough pieces to still make a go of it without rebuilding. Division rival who they lost to in the postseason.

Only 1 of those teams has sent an offer sheet before - Doug Wilson sent one to Hjalmarsson when Chicago had cap issues before.

The guy has one good season...playing a lot of it on the best offensive player on the planet's wing...and he is worth 8m+?

No, definitely not. Go with the bridge deal. See how he does in 2-3 years. If not, take the 2/3 1st round picks and run with RNH as your 2nd line centre. Use the first rounders to get us a very good defenceman and to balance out the rest of the roster.

It would be extremely stupid, to be sure. And if I was the Oilers, I'd take the picks and run. NO ONE knows if Drai is a 6 million dollar player yet. Let alone a 10 million dollar player.

That said, there is a lot of stupid out there. I furthermore don't believe the 'offer sheet' idea is all Rishaug's doing.

I honestly think the top option should be trying to get a 2-5 year bridge deal which should be as long as we can get while being able to maintain a reasonable dollar figure on the deal.

I'll be happy with anything under 8 at this point. Hoping for closer to 7.

Assuming an 8 year deal.
