$7M? Overpayment.... No more than $1.5M per please. Maybe $5M for the term.

He'll get more than 1.5. It's a short contract, the salary will be higher.

See LeftWinger, we do sometimes agree on things. :lol:

I would even be somewhat surprised if it is as high as $5M though. My guess has been all along and still stands at around $1.25M per, so $3.75M over three years...

I'm thinking somewhere around 1.8 to 2.2... Even then, I wouldn't be surprised to see 2.4 or 2.5 per.

I don't think 2.3M/yr is overpayment. That third year could end up being a bargain.

Although Holland is terrific with his RFA signings (see: Sheahan, Riley) so I wouldn't be shocked at 1.5M per either.

Happy dance. Happy dance.

Now just give us DannyD and I'll be happy.

EDIT: Make that "I'll be totally happy". I'm now happy enough to be doing a happy dance. When we sign Danny I'll be doing a happy backflippy kind of dance. Right now it's more of a happy cha-cha.

It may only be retaining a player we certainly should have retained, but this is still very good news. It's easy to forget the time when Tatar was buried in GR and getting frustrated. He's a talented young scorer that we have locked up for 3 years of what will be his peak physical ability. And if he becomes a perennial 25 or possibly 30-goal scorer, he'll be worth well in excess of $3 million per year by the end of this deal, so I won't lose too much sleep over whether or not this feels like an "overpay" when the cap hit comes out.

Couldn't care less either I'm just happy we have him locked up for 3 more years. If he can score around 20 - 25 goals annually that would be absolutely fantastic - to quote 'Babs :) -

It's a good day. I saw DeKeyser earlier say on Twitter he was confident a new deal would get done sooner rather than later so yes, a good day.

Think about how this compares to Damien Brunner - Brunner was a horribly one-dimensional player with little NHL track record but already in his mid-20's, and there were those that pissed (at the time) that the Wings wouldn't go to 2.5 or 3 million per on a 2 or 3-yr deal.

Tatar posted a 19-goal season in really his first full season (on a team decimated by injuries and surrounded by other young players). To get him on a 3-year evaluation period AND he's still an RFA at the end of the deal is terrific. It benefits Tatar, too, but it's a good signing for the organization, nonetheless.

UPDATE: And I see that it's $2.75 per now. You can see from my posts that I was preparing the mob for this :) I think it's perfectly valued. Maybe he's worth just shy of $2 million now, but if he progresses at all, he's easily a $4 million player in year 3. And if he doesn't pan out, qualify him conservatively or cut him loose.
