Apparently back loaded so his contract is worth 10 million on the final year. So to qualify him, it will be a 10 million dollar one year deal. Will be interesting how that will get played out.

 

Might be a new loophole to get their player paid well but keep the cap low for the next few years.

If BB6 is waiting on these RFA deals to be signed as a gauge for his value, he might be screwing himself because these are lower than expected (Johnsson, Kapanen, Meier). This deal is going to look damn good in a couple years when Meier is one of the best power FWDs in the league. Hell, he already is top 5 in that department!

Wow, that is a sneaky move by his agent if true.  It could make him a UFA a year earlier if he isn’t worth the qualifying offer.

 

I didn’t raise qualifying offers were based on just the last year’s salary.

Yeah I never thought about it either, but just read a tweet about it. Getting to UFA sooner makes sense or get paid the big bucks assuming they progress into that player over the 4 years.

lower cap hit to not buy UFA years.  I hope we pay a little more and longer term for Boeser.  An 8 year x $7 million deal would be pretty good

Point totals are almost identical and games played. It’s a good comp. Hopefully you’re right.
