<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Vortex</b></div><div>bud thats an overpayment for just 3 years, I would agree that would be to low for a 6-8 year deal but damn for only three years?? Marner should nab that. IMO Marner is worth 9,160,000 for 6 years, i mean how many bad contracts have been signed as far as RFA's go, the only one that comes to mind is the sissons deal that was signed today, I mean you see Aho at 8.4yadayada for 5 years and hes the best player on his team AND hes a center. Meier and Lebanc signed SWEETHEART deals, Im willing to bet that affects the Marner situation.</div></div>
I agree that in terms of money for player, 3x8.5 is fair, but I meant in terms of specifically Marner, that contract wouldn't work. Also, no matter how good they are, neither Meier or Labanc had 90+ point seasons. Eichel, McDavid, MATTHEWS all got huge contracts right after their ELC. I think Marner and his camp will (and probably have) especially used Matthews contract as a comparable. Don't think Marner would take a pay cut considering he's produced at such a high level.
