I wouldn't question how much he makes. He's our franchise player and he's been quite loyal. Give him what he wants. He'd easily get more than 6.75 M on the open market. I'd bet that he could get 10 M for a couple years.

Considering his production, his leadership skills, his clutchness, his faithfulness to the franchise, and his guidance to the rookies, I'd say that this is a good investment.

I believe the closest thing to a "hometown discount" was merely his focus on primarily re-signing with the team, as opposed to having the Avs compete with other teams for his services.

Plus, a million dollar raise isn't too much of a hit, considering that it's a one year contract (meaning that if his performance takes a hit next year, the Avs can adjust the next contract accordingly), and many salaries are off the books next year.

Nobody can get 10 million per year .

Joe could have gotten more elsewhere, but that would mean possibly uprooting his family. I think he and his family are comfortable here, and I would imagine that figured into his decision to stay in Colorado. I don't know that I'd consider that a home-town discount; just a good choice for his family and for the Avs.

(i think Jori also made this calculation some time ago)
Yeah, I know. I meant $4M was how much space would be freed up. I said that in my original post, I mistyped in my second one.
