Why have a rib eye when you can have a box of KD?

:lol: :roll:
If the team is playing awesome and the ownership/management/coaches are great to you in a superb city, it's a fairly confident move and a sure sign they'll re-sign without any issues. VAN is not like a shitty city like Edmonton where everyone wants to get out asap unless you're overpaid.
You lock up your franchise players full stop. Wake up and get your head out of Gomer’s ass.

FFS Mick, you just linked an article the other day in which Tanev was suggesting he might be open to a one year deal.

Franchise players getting shorter term deals with a more affordable cap hit after their ELC's include:

Crosby and Malkin 5 years (championships)
Patrick Kane and Toews 5 years (championships)
Getzlaf and Perry 5 years (champion)
Matthews 5 years
Seguin 6 years
Giroux 3 years
Voracek 1 yr, 4 years
Bergeron 5 years (champion)
Stamkos 5 years
Kucherov 3 years
Point 3 years


Only the Oilers bucked the trend and paid McDavid/Draisaitl full cash up front after their ELC's, Sabres with Eichel and the Leaves got suckered with Nylander/Marner all three teams who haven't fared well imo.
Capitals 13 years for Ovie, Avs 7 years for MacKinnon and Landeskog but cheaper AAV's.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

You don’t sign your franchise players to five year deal and walk them to UFA at 25 or 26. It’s pure stupidity.

If you need to bridge one of them do it for 2 -3 years. All things equal, getting their names on 8 year deals is optimum.

Just don't be surprised if they aren't signed to 8 year "max $" extensions as a ton of franchise players across the league don't get that very often after their ELC's.

I should add I'm not entirely opposed to that 8 year extension, I just don't see that happening, could be wrong tho. :D

We have agreed on many things over the years. Sometimes I think we were pretty close to agreeing on a few more things over the past four or five years but nobody would budge that extra inch or so :lol:

Little early to be saying 8 for 8 for both. Should at least try and stagger the terms but if nothing else, wait a bit. Not five though!!

What he said Micky was "Whether it’s one year or many years (on the next contract), I’d love to play my whole career here. Who knows what’s going to happen?"
