I'm not sure why it's taking Bergie so long.

Habs need D (well, they need everything really). They could use a young Bhutt and maybe even a DJ in the dressing room.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Boeser said he's not worried about signing a new contract right now, saying he has one more year left on his current one, just concentrating on the upcoming season.

HOWEVER IF Boeser gets injured again, he goes from possible $6.5-$6.9M per x 8 years with signing bonuses to last through the possible CBA holdout to a $3.5M - $4M x 2 or 3 years bridge contract just like that.

pros and cons for him and his agent, risk vs reward.

^ A career-ending injury would mean ZERO dollars.

Something we know he thought about long and hard after last year's injury.

"$6.5-$6.9M per x 8 years" would be at the lowest possible end of the scale.

The expectation in this day and age is more is more like $8M X 8.

Dilemma. And with it, precautionary positioning.

Nyet.

Perhaps you should check good ol' cap friendly m8, nobody in his age range is getting those numbers.

https://www.capfriendly.com/browse/active/2019

Boeser unless he's putting up MVP points in the playoffs ala Draisaitl in 2017, he won't be getting 8+ m.

IF he wants that kind of dough tho, he'll have to bridge contract for 3 years like Nikita Kucherov and dominate those years, which I'd be ok with as we keep the cap down for 3-4 years, then give him primo money. OR he can simply take the standard 6x6.something like Pastrnak, Johnny Hockey.

Lol, yeahno, you don't get to dis-include Draisaitl my friend!

McDave got $12.5M X 8... but he's at least 50% better than Boeser.

Eichel got $10 X 8... but he's 25% better.

Draisaitl got $8.5 X 8... we're getting warmer.

Your boy Pastrnak only got $6.66M-per but that's only a 6-year contract... YUGE difference.

Now... in regards to Boeser and your list, show me a single similarly-aged/similar-stats forward lately to sign anything like your:

"$6.5-$6.9M per x 8 years" :mex:
