Wow. Granted he only just had his breakout year, but I was equating him to Briere. 3.5 could win up being a huge steal for him all things considered.

You could do:

5-year 21m contract offer:
Y1: 8m
Y2: 8m
Y3: 4m - the biggest drop can be 50% of $8M
Y4: 500K
Y5: 500K

50.7 "100 Percent Rule" for Multi-Year SPCs. The difference between the stated Player Salary and Bonuses in the first two League Years of an SPC cannot exceed the amount of the lower of the two League Years. Thereafter, in all subsequent League Years of the SPC, (i) any increase in Player Salary and Bonuses from one League Year to another may not exceed the amount of the lower of the first two League Years of the SPC (or, if such amounts are the same, that same amount); and (ii) any decrease in Player Salary and Bonuses from one League Year to another may not exceed 50 percent of the Player Salary and Bonuses of the lower of the first two League Years of the SPC (or, if such amounts are the same, 50 percent of that same amount).
Illustration #1: An SPC provides for $2 million in Player Salary in Year 1. The SPC may provide for up to $4 million in Year 2 and up to $6 million in Year 3.

Illustration #2: An SPC provides for $1 million in Player Salary in Year 1 and $2 million in Year 2. If the SPC provided for $4 million in Year 3, such SPC would not be approved, as the difference between Year 2 and Year 3 ($2 million) exceeds the amount of the lower of the first two League Years ($1 million). Therefore, the SPC would have to provide no more than $3 million in Year 3.

Illustration #3: An SPC provides for $1 million in Player Salary in Year 1 and $3 million in Year 2. The SPC would not be approved, as the difference between Year 1 and Year 2 ($2 million) exceeds the amount of the lower of the first two League Years ($1 million). Therefore, the SPC would have to provide no more than $2 million in Year 2.

Illustration #4: An SPC provides for $2 million in Player Salary in Year 1. In Year 2, the SPC may not provide for less than $1 million, or provide for more than $4 million.

Illustration #5: An SPC provides for $950,000 in Player Salary in Year 1, and $950,000 in Year 2. In Year 3, the SPC may not provide for more than $1.9 million.

Illustration #6: An SPC provides for $1.9 million in Player Salary in Year 1, and $1.9 million in Year 2. In Year 3, the SPC may not provide for less than $950,000.

Illustration #7: An SPC provides for $750,000 in Player Salary in Year 1, and $1.1 million in Year 2. In Year 3, the SPC may not provide for more than $1.85 million ($1.1 million plus $750,000 (the amount of the lower of the first two years of the SPC)).

If another team offered Gionta $5M/yr, I wouldn't blame him at all for signing that offer sheet. I would wish him well with his new team and be thankful for all the draft picks coming the other way.

That being said, I don't think there's a team out there that will offer him that kind of money and I don't think he would sign an offer sheet for less.

You, sir, are correct. And Gio's agent has basically said as much. And Gio didn't file for arbitration because of it. If a $5 mil offer sheet comes up -- the draft picks coming back alone would exceed his trade value anyway. And no team would trade all those picks AND 5 million dollars for Brian Gionta and his one break out season, "new NHL" or not.

(And I wear the guys jersey to every Devils game...)

Nope. Try Again. This violates the Max Salary - 20% of cap in years 1 & 2. The Max Salary (20% of $44M = $8.8M) is for the salary in any year of the contract, not the average.
