I remember this was talked about here a few weeks or maybe a month ago and I think at the time I felt like JT's number, with the natural assumption that he'd be taking some sort of hometown discount but not play for basically free because he's still a really good player, would come in around $5-7mil. With that said things haven't exactly been going too hot for him since then, and he's now on pace for just 60 points this season. If that's where he's at over the next 1.5 seasons then I think I'd even take that range down just a touch.
I'm dreaming but I'm hoping they allocate 6M to Tavares and he gives 3M to his buddy Stamkos and they both retire together when McDavid signs and gets the Captaincy..
