Do you want to pay 7 million plus per year for a 20 point 5on5 defensemen. Is he capable of playing tougher minutes without breaking. Since I don't watch Blues games on a regular basis, I can't speak to whether he's sheltered or whether 20 points at 5 on 5 for a defenseman isn't good under the circumstances. What I do know though is that he has 42 points, which is good for fourth among defenseman and blows away what Severson has. If those points are coming on the powerplay, well, powerplay goals and points count. So far as the money goes, who in the organization will be in line for a huge pay raise to make that number unworkable? Hall will probably see an AAV bump up to $7.5 or $8. Maybe Severson becomes a $4-$5 million player. If some combination of Zacha, McCleod, Speers, Wood, Santini and whoever the Devils draft this year are in line for big money three to five years from now, that's not a terrible problem to have. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
