If Lowe offered $10.6 million, you guys would get 4 1st round picks for Dustin, as much as I'd love to have the kid on my team, that's waaaay too much compensation IMO. $5.5 is a possibility, especially if Lowe continues to have a hard time finding a goal scoring LW.
$5.5 isn't an option for Penner, not even from Lowe. $3.5 million per on a four or five would be the ideal RFA offer, since he's worth a first and a third, and it's just enough to really put the squeeze on Anaheim. You know Burke wants to bring him in for well under that.
The optimist in me is thinking that Burke is talking to Teemu about coming back for one more year and then figuring out Penner's salary.
if penner is likely to get ~3-4 million from the ducks how much more would it take for him to go to Edmonton and accept the offer sheet?
I mean maybe he rejects a 5 million offer...
I don't think Penner will sign an offer sheet, and I don't think Lowe will extend and offer sheet to Penner. I think this is just taking a little bit of time so that Burke and Penner can get a long term deal done. We're only 13 days in to free agency so I'm not too worried yet.
