I'm a guy that mentioned Niskanen months ago but honestly the more I think about a 7 year deal the more I think it could backfire. What if he just a good year and doesn't end up being what we thought and we're stuck with this guy and a big contract. If the Wings sign him I hope it's not over 5 mil per. 5 year/25 million would be a great contract but that's not going to cut it.
With EVERY CONTRACT, there are always risks. ...and yes while 5/25 would be much easier to swallow, as you said: "that's not going to cut it."
So either Kenny steps up, makes his best offer... or he doesn't.
EDIT: I'm glad that there are more options than just Niskanen. So if KH does step up and make an offer and someone beats us out for his services it won't be the end of the world.
