4 years then. Landeskog needs a new contract, can't see him signing anywhere under what Raantanen is gettong, so 9.5 + considering UFA years Then after, you Have Makar (7), Mackinon (11), Byram all needing new deals before EJ's buyout is off the books. Oh and Flat cap during that era. And you need to ice a 20man roster too. I get why Avs ar trying to trade Graves salary to every fan base considering he's overpaid for a bototm pairing D, but everyone sees how Avs cap crunh will hurt them in a very near future... No one is taking Graves and giving you a 2nd rd pick for him, Let alone adding a prospect.
