No idea what Eberle could be looking for. He's already getting $6 MM. His 10 goals and team worst -8, don't exactly justify a raise.
- JohnScammo

I can't imagine he gets much of a raise. Maybe a standard 10% raise so he'd be at $6.6M or something like that. Wouldn't be surprised if he took a pay cut either.

Sounds easy. What if Lehner wants a 5 year deal?

Sorokin even if he does come over. How he going to do in the NHL?

- nyisles7


I highly doubt anyone will go near 5 years with him.

I mentioned earlier that the most likely scenario would be a 3 year deal. But if the Isles want to keep him from hitting the FA market, I have no problem with the isles throwing in a 4th year to lock him down. 5 years is crazy though.

The (frank) you say?

You know some idiot GM is gonna offer him 7.25. Waddell for instance.

I honestly don't see how he could be asking for a raise. Has he ever topped any of his oiler numbers?

His best year was his sophomore season. He hasn't hit 70+ points since.

I think he'll still end up with around 25 goals...he's looked a lot better lately and I think it took some time for him, like everyone else, to adjust to the new systems and also new linemates. But, like I said, I don't know if I'd keep both him and Bailey. The offense needs a little more punch, and if they re-sign Nelson and Lee, RW is the only place in the top six that can happen.

I was just looking them up. he hit 59 points last year. not bad by any means. This year he's really slowing down. Might not even crack 40.

I'd let this season play out and see if he finishes strong. But seriously there's no way im giving him a raise. or even the same contract. 29 years old.

4 years @ 4.5 million. I wouldnt wanna give him 4 years at 5 million but these contracts lately have def been inflated. 4x5mil is TOPS what i offer him.

Yeah I get it but Lehner keeps it up, I'm not looking to trade him, I'ld look to keep him.

I hope Sorokin truly does come and plays well but on top of never playing an NHL game, just being paid big money already in his homeland i don't know if its truly gonna happen and would hedge my Teams future goaltending on it. Unless of course Lou knows a lot more than we do, which very well could be the case.

It will be interesting how this plays out.

Right you have lehner still and sorokin has time to adjust with him here. If sorokin is amazing you have lehner that can be moved and if sorokin blows you have lehner. Win win and griess bridges the gap till sorokin comes over
