<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NMAvsFan</b></div><div>I don't see him being offered an 8x10; I'd say 8x9, max. If the cap stays flat for the next 2-3 years, the Avs may not really have a choice but to bridge and Makar and his agent might decide to wait things out and see what happens with the cap to try to get more later. It's going to depend on what Landy gets, what happens with Gru, who gets taken by Seattle, what other trades might happen, etc. It can be managed but it's going to be an interesting next few years in terms of keeping the core together, getting the younger guys in (which is going well, so far) and surrounding them with enough auxiliary talent to remain at the top.</div></div>
Why would Makar get less than Rantanen with more term? Makar > Rantanen.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xqb15a</b></div><div>I think the only one of those that matters is if he wants a bridge to maximize his earning. He is without a doubt the 2nd most important player on the team. Him and MacKinnon for lack of better description operate in vacuum contract wise not influenced by other players, because push comes to shove they cut loose any player not named MacKinnon or Makar to sign them. I agree whole heartedly about filling in the auxiliary players, but if the scouting department does their jobs guys like Kaut, Bowers, LOC, Kovalenko, Jost, even if one or two of Foudy, Mutula, Steinburg, Ranta, Beucage, or Rolston can fill out the bottom 6 letting guys like Compher, Donskoi, PEB, Nichushkin and Calvert to walk at the end of their contracts allows even more flexibility.
Here is one not so crazy thought, what happens if Makar wins the Norris this year? One thing for sure you would be begging him to sign an 8x10 deal.</div></div>
You'd be begging him to sign 10Mx8 even if he doesn't win the Norris. If Makar is smart he takes a bridge deal cause he's still improving.
