Sbisa was signed at 3.6 having proved less at the time of the signing. Guddy will be commanding a pay raised based on what he's expecting to grow into. If he's willing to take a 1 year deal them maybe he will accept what he's currently making but not a chance he takes a cut. Anything over a one year deal 4+. Rackell was signed this year. Prior to signing the contract Rackell's career high was 43 points (he did this as a 22 year old). Horvat is on pace to be in the 50 point range this year (which he's doing as a 21 year old playing with higher D-zone starts), so he will be way higher than rackell Rackell had a break out season this year but that's after the contract was signed. Horvat's having a break out season before the contract. Better comparables would be players in his same age range. Monahan 6.375 Barkov 5.9 MacKinnon 6.3 Forsberg 6.0 You could throw in a comparable of Scheifele 6.125. Prior to signing his contract he had 3 years in the NHL where he put up 34 points, then 49 points and then 61 points. Horvat entered the NHL a year younger than Scheifele and has put up 29 points, then 41 points and now is on pace for 52 points. You can make a case that Horvat doesn’t deserve to be in the 6 range but he’s clearly in the 5+ range, Good points Forsberg! We shall see. Gudbranson probably does sign for 3.5, but in that case i try a 3 year deal. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
