Saad is a 22 year old left-wing with 203 lbs who just won a Stanley Cup i.e. COULD be an emerging star. Nyquist while a very good player is turning 26 soon, a bit undersized and hasn't won a Stanley Cup. So would I pay him 7 mill yet? no but for sure something in the 6 mill range, to buy out some UFA years.
Actually this is his second cup.
