Great contract for the kid. He carried is to the finals last year so he deserves every single penny.

Also he makes less than Jeff Skinner so that makes the deal look even better.

I really like Miro, and I can see his potential.


He doesn't yet have the full body of results that would garner a contract like this, and as they didn't get a discount for going long (as I don't think he'd get much more than this in 3 years time) I would have bridged him.

I have yet to decide whether that makes this a bad contract or not.

Edit: I think I'm leaning towards a no vote. The opportunity cost of not bridging him is too high for a team looking to win and the risk he never puts it all together and hits that upper echelon make this too risky for my taste

I mean Miro is good but if he is making 8.5, Then what is Makar and Hughes gonna get? Dallas is gonna have to shed some contracts because dang they got a lot of people making big money

Tough to swallow right now, but I bet this contract looks pretty good when the cap starts to rise again.

The new reality of the NHL.
If you are a top player you get paid. If you aren't you ain't getting squat.

The gap between the top and everyone else is growing even larger in the flat cap world.

Chabot type-of-deal

Those two will be UFA at around 30, so potential to make even more money on a second contract

Smart move by Dallas to lock him up long term

Curious what Hughes Fox and Makar get now

First opinion is that I really like this for Dallas. I think Heiskanen will only continue to improve and this deal will look real nice in a few years!

Chabot got 8x8, if that’s a baseline then I think 8x8.5 is fair

Little to much I feel 7.5M probably would’ve been more appropriate.

Any cap hit that is south of 9 million is good for the Stars IMO.

His career as an elite NHL defenceman is just beginning.

I voted yes smile

Not too much at all. This is a great deal for one of the premier elite players today.

In 1 or 2 years people who are saying this is an overpay are going to be eating their words. This is a great deal.

Agreed, Heiskanen brings a lot of extra tangibles to his game.

Slightly too much for me, but I'm not complaining.

We're talking about a guy who has played his off side with Oleksiak or his main side with Polak throughout his whole career with elite results.
