    8 years, $8.5 million is an awful lot for a player who doesn't really produce well without McDavid.

    Holy hell, McDavid and Draisaitl together make $21 million starting in 18-19. That's flat out obscene. That's the same that Toews and Kane got together for winning 3 Cups as UFAs.

    Pricey. Well see if the Oilers can fill out a good team between him and McDavid now.

    I believe the splits go 60% GF with, and 44% GF without? That's an enormous difference.

    Draisaitl is a good player but there's no reason that he should be paid this much more than Tarasenko or Gaudreau.

    What a silly argument... Toews and Kane didn't win those cups alone. McDavid today is better than either of those players, and deserves more. Drai has a lot to prove.

    High price, but he's worth it. At least he's locked up to 8 years.
