Then, you're overvaluing your players and don't know enough/haven't watch enough Matthew Tkachuk games. That is as simple as that. It's alright to be wrong, you know? A prospect, even an A level prospect, is still a risk whether you want to or not, since there is absolutely no guarantees that he'll develop as promised. Holtz is a good prospect, but he ain't a top 10 NHL prospect, not even top15. Nemec is higher than he is on his own team's prospect list...
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HabsRafiki</b></div><div>Jones will get top money or term, probably not both. Romanov? I am not sure what kind of $$$ you imagine he'll get, but unless there is a marked improvement next season (year 3 of his ELC), he'll get a modest bridge that starts with a "2". Suzuki is a more interesting question. His numbers suggest a Domi-like contract, which is $5.3M. He'd get something close to that if the Habs can get 5 years of term from him. Otherwise, he'll get 2-3 years in the high 3s and go for the big number on his next contract.</div></div>
I was pointing out the fact that in his projection, there wasn't any "provision", cap wise, for the salary increase of those 3 players.
I'm ok with what you're saying. I'm not foreshadowing a huge contract for Romanov, even with a great season next year. I'd say a 2x2.25-2.5 would be realistic, if he continue to develop.
For Jones, since he's willing to test the market, I doubt he'll settle for less than his true worth, which is between 8.25 & 9.25 AAV on a 7 years deal.
#14, now : I've seen enough of the kid and what he's capable of that I would throw max term right now! I mean, summer 2021, not after his ELC ends in 2022. Sign him NOW for max term and get yourself a HUGE bargain deal for the years 4 through 8 (maybe even starting year 3). GM'S have to take risks and that Suzuki kid is totally worth it.
