    The most reliable guy on HFOIL has this to say today.

    He posted that in the Draisaitl thread

    Looks like something is getting done. The guy is NEVER wrong. Take a look as his post history.

    My guess is $8*8

    If it's only 6 years, I can't see it being 8M+. I'll guess 8x8 which would be fair, not good not bad.

    Ouch that would suck. If its 6 years, it is closer to $7 IMO.

    That would mean that the team is only buying 1 UFA year so I can't see it being that high for only 6 years.

    2 years too short, or $2M AAV too much

    Unless you actually meant $8.25...

    I wouldn't mind six years at a lower cap hit. A lot of things can happen in six years.

    The Tarasenko deal methinks.

    8yrs x 7.5

    Same agent (as well as Gaudreau), same level of posturing, same eventual cave to the team's preference.

    Not a lot of teams can afford him that also have the assets to give up. I would say that the odds are nil that its a trade.

    That would sure liven this place up though.
