Do you think Rats is asking for a salary that is way more than what Mack is making? Could they be hesitant to make someone else the highest paid player?

He will clearly make more than Mack. Probably somewhere in the 10Mil per range

It doesn't matter.. it's dumb. Mackinnon is signed for 4 more, and nobody like Mikko is gonna take that LOL.

He should sign 10x8 and just get it over with.

Give Mackinnon 11x8 next round and let's move the f on. This is insane.

Did the kid not do enough, already? Gtfo.

It is the term that is the thing, pretty sure there is no issue giving Rants 10M/yr (or so). These guys know a new TV deal is coming, so sign a shorter term and cash in after, where teams want the term. (Referencing in general since there is a lot of RFA's without contracts)

If someone holds out over "tv money" and are about to sign a 10m a year deal, I seriously question how much they really want to play hockey there.

We are asking the same questions and feel your pain.

NONE of these kids deserve the money they're asking for. Not one.

Kutcherov had 41 goals, 87 assists, for 128 points! Those incredible numbers followed an impressive 100 point season the year before....He is a right wing...He is only making 9.5 million. None of these RFA jokers deserve to make more then Kutcherov. To be clear, I am not a lightning fan, I am an AVS fan. I love Rantannen, and he should get paid. Based on the numbers though, I think he should take a 8 year deal, for 9M per, 72M contract...Everyone talking about these guys wanting anywhere from 10 to 12M a year, I think its crazy....None of these guys came close to Kutcherov's numbers. Kutcherov put up 87 assists, that's as many total points most of these guys had, and then he tacked on 41 more GOALS! No way these youngsters can justify reasonably that they should make more then him...He set the top pay bar in my opinion, and they all need to follow along in scale.

Kucherov left money on the table, he could have gotten 11/12M easily on the market, So doesn't mean any other player needs to do that.

9x4 Bridge. Sound good? Or since CO always seems to have incredibly cheap contracts, maybe 7.5x4?
