You can argue that its only 1 season, But i think he will stay a ppg throughout the contract, or even higher then that. Good deal....But i think Minnesota has some other things to worry about like idk. Cap space

Minnesota fans finally get the star they deserve and he’s got some term.

It’s not ideal but you got this star for 5 years to run at the cup.

Guerin @ co. got played harder than Dubas did with Ferris and Marner's staff. Getting $9M after one year is just insane.

DOLLA DOLLA BILL KIRILL

Guerin let him win though. It's unheard of for a player to get 9 million after only playing like 50 games. The svech deal looks like even more of a steal now.

Pro: The Wild finally signed Kaprizov

Con: The Wild have massive cap problems for 5 years because they bought out Suter and Parise

Summary: The Wild have a great player but messed up their cap space to sign players to support him

Way too much for a player with only 55 games under his belt. Furthermore, it takes him to UFA status, so the Wild have no leverage to keep him after this.

Before this contract is up Minny fans will turn on him.

If he has a sophomore slump, they will turn on him before the end of the season.

This is a great deal for Kirill but not ideal for the Wild. But, having him available for the entire camp is very important. The young players need to see his commitment and talent on full display. I can't help but think how missing Quinn and Elias will get VAN's season off to a bad start.

It bought out 2 UFA seasons, though. It's not a contract that takes him directly to UFA. It's more like the Marner contract.

Makes the Marner contract not seem so bad. Definitely don't think Kirill is as good as Marner or Rantanen.
