Solid. I thought it would be a little bit higher tbh. Even taking into consideration taxes diff, etc etc its lower than the equivalent of Marner's.
Was expecting 10M before other RFA's signed, then I dropped my opinion to 9.5M when he was the only guy remaining. Its a lot of money still but there was ample argument it could be a little higher.
Either way, I don't think anyone in the league would not be willing to pay Rantanen 9.25M had he been a UFA right now. He's been really good the past two years.
