Lol at people saying 3 or 3.5 million, no way he gets anything under 4.5. Back to back near 30 goal seasons and back to back to back seasons of being one of the teams top scorers he's well worth 4.5+. We're lucky he's an RFA and not a UFA because there are teams out there that would offer 5+ easy.
Everyone in this thread has come to accustomed to Kenny and his lowball "market value" offers, fact is good players get paid and Goose is a good player.
Saad, age 22, 23G 29A 52 PTS - 6M
O'Rielly, age 24, 17G 38A 55 PTS - 7.5M
Kadri, age 24, 18G 21A 39 PTS - 4.1M
Nyquist, age 25 27G 27A 54 PTS- ???
O'Rielly and Saad being comparable to Gooses productivity and Kadri being slightly below Gooses productivity (Kadri's never scored more than 20) it's easy to say goose is a 4.5M+ player.
If you had to go to Free Agency to replace Gooses productivity it's going to cost 5 Million plus for a near 30 goal 50+ points scorer.
An offensive defenseman under 30 with a RH shot on a short term deal? Even if he does end up being subpar on the back end, it's really hard to find fault with this deal. When you consider what's out there (or what isn't out there) and the prices that those guys are demanding, kind of hard to find any negatives to it.
From this day forward no red wing shall wear #90... That's what you get for trying to get around using #19 or #9 Give me a break... Nyquist has scored more goals in the last two years than Tatar plus is a better all around player. I would be happy if we locked him up long term after he played for peanuts the last two years
