    Nichushkin is 8x$6.125M on his extension in COL

    that's a lot of $$ especially at 8 years
    I think it's worth it. Wonder if we'll see a Mackinnon extension before Lekhonen.

    • Wow I’m stoked they locked him up that long. That’s amazing. That’s we’re back paying you for a Stanley cup similar to what elway did with Von and DT.

        Not at all. This is actually pretty much fair market value for Nichushkin. He would've gotten 7 million for 7 years on the open market, maybe even more. The Penguins just signed Rickard Rakell, a vastly inferior winger compared to Nichushkin, for 6 years at 5 million per.

        If anything Nichushkin did us a favor.

        The deal is actually pretty team friendly too in that it's quite frontloaded. Most of the money is in the first three years so five years from now the contract will look much better (and the cap will have gone up by ~10 million bucks by then, at least).
        Anyone seen Jake Plummer?

          I didn’t mean it as derogatory. Just more surprised we did it for 8 years rather than I am the dollar value.

            He probably doesn't sign without that 8th year. That's the compensation for us not being able to go as high as $7M. There's probably a team out there that would've gone as high as $7.5 or even $8M at 6 or 7 years for him.

            Just wait until you see some of the crazy deals people start getting on Wednesday. Wouldn't shock me at all if someone gives Burakovsky $6M per.

              • Wishlist:
                -MacKinnon extended; every million under 12 on the AAV is a gift from him
                -Lekhonen @ ~4M per
                -Trochek @ ~6M per
                -Stastny @ ~2M - hoping he could be lured back on a cup chase/sentimental thing
                -JJ @ ~1M

                Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen
                Lehkonen-Trochek-Nichushkin
                Newhook-Stastny-Compher
                Cogliano-Meyers-O'Connor
                (Sedlak, MacDermid)

                Toews-Makar
                Byram-EJ
                Girard-JJ
                (MacDonald)

                Georgiev
                Francouz

                ~1M in cap space left over

                If they absolutely HAVE to make a trade it's probably Girard and Compher going out. I'd prefer to keep them.

                        Seems a little high for him but he played really well and is a perfect fit. Just hope it means we can keep Lekhonen after next year.

                          Agreed. I think it's the fit with the team and that since the Avs aren't going to be a major player in free agency, they are trying to keep some of these depth guys.

                          And I think Lehkonen is one of, if not the next, top priority.

                            I guess they figured all the 2Cs were too expensive. Roll into the regular season like this, trade for one if Compher can't handle it?
