<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MG1986</b></div><div>Food for thought. When Kerfoot was on Colorado, both in his rookie and sophmore season, he had extremely solid, if not great years as their 2C. On a Leafs team that features Matthews and Tavares, Kerfoot was being asked to do things he wasn't used to, and may not be fitted to do. I do think on the right team, he could be a solid 2C, as he was with Colorado, provided he is not shouldered with too much defensive responsibility (d-zone faceoffs, PK time, etc.).</div></div>

Well of course there is a chance he could end up being good enough to warrant a first rounder eventually. I'm just saying that right now, I don't believe that to be the case.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>GMs</b></div><div>Pionk wont get over 5M IMO
Danault at 7M is insane, 6M not 7M
Copp at 3M is too much</div></div>
If Pionk plays as well as he did this season, the Jets would be happy to give him $6.25. It would be a nice symbol to have your two young, cornerstone defensemen making the same amount of money for the long term.
That's perhaps a little high on Danault probably, but at $7 million between those two wingers, I bet he would exceed that price.
Copp at $3 million is not that much of an overpay, if even at all. He's kind of the Jets' swiss army knife and versatility at not a high cap hit goes a long way. It's not even much of a raise from his current deal, which is a very reasonable one. Can jump up the lineup (not an ideal scenario, but he can hold the fort during an injury, plays PK and is a great third liner)
I hope that D corps in good enough by 2021! Other than a potential drop-off from Wheels due to age, that forward corps is elite. Well done!
