    Kucherov wound up our best player vs. NJ. He got shut down for the most part vs. Boston and Washington, but I think we're getting way, way, waaaay too reactionary about one of very few players in this league capable of scoring 100 points.

    I have a much easier time paying Kucherov 10 million than I did Stamkos I'll tell you that much.

    Point is more likely to get Johnson'd then Kucherov is to fall back from the elite group of forwards in the league.

    Kucherov is actually a franchise player I’d be fine paying him 9 -10 avv per season

    I don’t get paying Kucherov more than Hedman when Hedman is the best player on the team

    It’s because the cap is taking a major jump really they would be the same with the percentage of the cap when hedman signed

    Ya I know by far Kucherov is our best forward it’s not even close! Then point is our second best forward.

    Can't argue with that. He's got all the mojo which means Kuch should be on his line.

    He wasn't Hedmonster. None of our three cornerstone players had a good playoffs. Hedman has set the standard pretty high for himself.

    Sergachev impressed as a rookie but I'd hardly call that performance "beastly"......

    They were good, but Kucherov and Hedman have both had otherworldly post-seasons. I think Point might have one of those too somewhere down the line. He keeps getting better.

    I don't know that we can expect another 40 points from Sergachev (who turns 20 in three days, for those who GAF). He slowed down a bit after a hot start. I think he'll get back to that level, but I doubt it happens next year. Especially if we bring in another top-4 D.

    I think he can do it, his confidence was clearly back in the playoffs and he was snakebitten for a while in the season
