And I could name more recent acquisitions that went for less: Schenn, Bogosian, Lyubushkin, Petry, Edmunson (50% retention), Durzi, Klingberg, Ghost just to name a few... And a bunch of these got 50% retention or had RFA control after the season...</div></div>
And the Jackets recieved an additional 3rd for the retention; which if you read what I had to say, I wasn't bothering with as this is a Flames thread.
Out of your list of compatibles, only Schenn holds an argument..... who at 33 years of age when the Leafs made the move, was likely to get less. Why I don't see Tanev getting a 1st like most Flames fans would want. At full value.... he is a 3rd unfortunately. At 28, and having extension possibilities, as Savard to Tampa did, the tag is what it is going to be.
The rest of that list were simply cap dumps or don't measure up to Zadarov's play, or in Petey's case going to Detroit, doing right by the player.
