It’s high for right now. But when you factor in the salary cap rising every year. Combined with the fact He’ll probably play with Kakko and put up ridiculous numbers, this contract won’t look bad in a couple years.
Everyone was gasping at Draistl’s contract and think of your view on it now. These contracts always look better a couple years in.
the way the league is shaping up you need atleast three elite or semi- elite players on your team. It’s shaping up to look like we have that possibly with Hughes and definitely with Elias. It’s more favourable to do this through the draft but I wouldn’t be against signing a legit all star.
where it straps us are the deals like LE. We don’t get to play with money like Tampa. Which is why I think bringing back Gillis isn’t the worst idea. Let him deal with contracts and let Benning find the talent.
