My first reaction was "overpaid" but when you look deeper, this looks like a good deal. The kid took his time developing into a pro, but is on a pretty good trajectory. When you look at his comparable contracts, they all have similar points for similar AAV/Cap%, but the comparables have played significantly more games than Mantha.
I look at Tyler Toffoli a lot here, because Toffoli played two NHL season and got a $3,250,000/year deal. He had very similar scoring numbers. Basically identical earlier stages of their careers, but you hope Mantha doesn't regress offensively like Toffoli did the last two season.
Overall, good deal.
