I think we get Mathews cheaper then everyone thinks.  As Traveres is on his main contract aka the big one. but Mathews is only on his first pay day. the big big bucks will come on his next one, and the same for the other two.  I think everyone is over blowing the amount they should get.

I see no way Matthew's takes less than Eichel which isnt that much less than Tavares.

Yup. He's getting more the Eichel and is clearly the better player. Id be surprised if he got McDavid cash tho. Don't see it happening. JT money? Absolutely.

Not our fault Buffalo overpaid Eichel.

I'm pretty sure that's how this works. If another team signs a deal that could adversely affect the  salary structure Dubas wants he just has to call shenanigans three times and Matthews' agent is forbidden from bringing it up in negotiations.

Plays centre, and active in the NHL?

Yeah, quite scientific in the approach.  Really great job there, NHLNetwork.
