8M is too much imho. Unless you’ve got a solid 3-4 years of excellent goal tending, i’m not sure i’d paid that. 6.5, sure. I mean look at Carey Price, he is arguably the best goal tender since Roy, does he even make 8?

That’s a lot of money when one shot could end a career, quite a gamble under the cap era. I’d walk away

$8M is insane for Holtby. I don’t doubt his talent but he’s just begun to show some consistency. Obviously $8M is a bargaining number but somewhere closer to $5.5M seems right. I’m not sure how an arbitrator could pick $8M based on comparibles.

Is your name Carey Price? He makes $6.5. Come back to me when your name is, literally, Carey Price.
