The thing that frustrates me about the Pearson signing is that now either Quinn, or Elias, or likely both will have to sign short-term bridge deals in order to fit under the cap for next season. When you have a 22 y.o. star #1 C and you know he's only gonna get better and more expensive, why not an 8 year deal? Same with Quinn. The entire team is gonna be coming off a relatively poor season and Benning could get tremendous value on a pair of 8 year deals. Both players could be point per game players next season and their values could skyrocket. Imagine if EDM had signed Draisaitl to a 3 year bridge, lol. He'd cost $12M on his next contract. Maybe Chia just got lucky on that one, lol.
