Both teams won the trade, purely sideways deal for both teams. We gave up a premier young elite goaltender at the time, a major asset. Who wins the trade is who puts in the most service to the team that acquired said assets, as they are both deemed equal to each other. If like how Blob is predicing, we only can sign Horvat for 4 years until his UFA eligibility, then walks, then obviously - the Devils win the trade, do to the length of service.

You can say the Devils win the trade or you can say Benning poisoned the well and the kid didn't want to be here due to the fact the team was a garbage fire. There's multiple ways of looking at it.

What do you prefer as a Canucks fan.

Yup I concur, overpay slightly and get him locked up 8 years.

Is $6 M enough.

Seems low if he becomes the 60-70 point guy and the captain.

Bo's potential is certainly evident, but haven't seen enough for him to warrant north of $6.

While eight years may be enticing, you have to up the ante to buy those UFA years. And there is increased risk that comes with dishing out a term deal for $48-54, particularly when trade protection kicks in as the deal gets on.

I'd shoot for $25 over 5, or $33 over 6 year term, max!

If he turns into the player we all hope he will be, and the team enjoys success over the next 3-5 years, he'll be re-signed at a fair price anyway. Vancouver has a good track record for taking care of their Captain's.

Besides, dude's gonna get paid regardless, why put undue pressure on the kid by dropping $54mil on his shoulders?
