    If he was a 19 year old rookie I'd agree. But considering his age and resume prior to the NHL I have significantly fewer reservations.

    If he signs for 6.5 per year, it would be for 2 or 3 years only, not 6 years..

    6 years or more will be a significant jump in salary.

    Itll either be a 6-7 mill for 2 or 3 years OR else it'll be a 8 year massive deal

    Two year bridge should be the move here. They're going to have to pay big money for UFA years regardless, might as well mitigate your risk while maintaining his RFA status.

    That is the 2nd worst option of all the options.

    Based on what?

    The off chance he becomes a 50 goal or 100 point guy within two seasons and you then have to pay him 10-11M instead of 8-9M?

    Based on the fact that he could decide he wants to test free agency and just take a one year deal

    Electing arbitration after the 2 years and going right to UFA after 3.

    I could see a 1 year deal. A 2-4 year deal is awful. A 5 year deal is less than ideal. 6-8 is perfect depending on the AAVs

    If that's his goal, he'll just take a 3 year deal. Minny isn't really in a position to strongarm him in any amount of year they want. He can just go back to the KHL for a juicy contract if the Wild doesn't bend over to his desires.

    I think with it being flat cap for near future Wild might luck out on having Kaprizov sign relatively cheap and with term.

    Unless if he doesn't care to leave and go somewhere else. I don't really know what he's like but he's a dynamic talent from what he's displayed and I'm sure Wild fans are nervous what's gonna happen.

    All the best Wild fans.

    The “juicy KHL contract” is going to be a third of a reasonable NHL contract. And it’s a 3 year wait. It’s not as much of a threat as you might think.

    The top paid players in the KHL right now make under 2M and the KHL has a salary cap of 13M USD per team. He also has no arbitration rights and isn't eligible for any offer sheets.

    I pray your post was sarcastic, but I can't tell. You'll have to let me know.

    If he doesn't want a 6-8 years deal he won't take it.

    IMO, the 2 year deal is not as bad as you make it seem. Unless something goes terribly bad in the next two years, he should be willing to re-sign if he was potentially willing to sign for 4+ years.

    To me that's about as much of a danger as him asking for a trade after 2 years of his 8 years deal.

    2 million in Russia is plenty of money. He can pull a Radulov if he wants.

    And if the Wild don't want a 3 year deal it won't be offered.

    Some people believe this is how contract negotiations work.

    But to pretend Kaprizov has all the leverage here is just ignorant.

    He doesn't. He can't dictate the price. However, I think he can force a short term or long term deal depending on what he wants.

    He's their best forward by a mile. The only one with a chance to even come close in the next few years is Rossi (unless they get a top 3 pick). They cannot play hardball with him.

    It’s still the 2nd worst option, and should be avoided if at all possible.

    He’ll be paid extremely fairly, without our getting bent over.
