That's why I agree with you. It's just funny though.

I'd say the closest comparable to Nelson is Carl Soderberg, who's AAV is $4.75M but he signed a few years ago. I'd say Nelson getting $5M-$5.25M AAV is about where he'll be at.

Which is market value for a 50ish point forward in today’s NHL.

Really? You don’t wanna lock up Barzal for longer than 5 years?
- Wildschwein


No 5 years is enough. Only Lee should get more than 5.

I'll pass on that one. Not too keen on the idea of having Keith until he's 39.

- ses111

Meh, neutral.

What I think will happen: They're not adding a bigger name defenseman

My opinion: I don't know what Martinez's cost would be but probably not particularly cheap and I'm not paying a lot for him

But I know the salary cap doesn't matter at all other than in the immediate present, so what's the harm ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The most interesting thing in this hit was Dreger claiming that someone(s) is 100% preparing an offer sheet for Mitch Marner

Yup.

Bellows, Pelech and a 2nd should do it.

I still have a hard time believing it happens. The fact that the AAV is calculated by using the lesser of 5 years or the term offered really torpedoes the chance of it happening.

OK, gotcha. Anyhow, Soderberg is 6 years older than Nelson and is -6 compared to Nelson's +16. While I'd love to sign Nelson for the numbers you mention, he may be looking for a bit more.......I'd pay him up to $6 MM, but I wouldn't be happy about it.

- JohnScammo

Huh? I mentioned the exact numbers you did originally

Nelson is not a $6M+ player, I don't care what position he plays. If that's what his ask is then see ya later, Brock. I'm comfortable up to about $5.25 and I could live with $5.5. But anything north of that is dumb, unless it's on a 1-2 year deal, which is almost certainly not going to happen.
