Dylan Larkin's Next Contact

10/17/2022 at 7:54pm EDT

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

There’s no question in my mind that CAA Sports will want to introduce Mathew Barzal’s recent’s eight-year extension, paying him $9.15 million a year, into the Dylan Larkin negotiations with the Red Wings. For starters, CAA did the Barzal deal. But I also think they see overlapping numbers and factors between the players. Barzal is a year younger than Larkin and has a higher points-per-game career average, but there are certainly similarities. Having said that, Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman isn’t one to get bullied in contract negotiations. I suspect he has a number in mind for a Larkin extension and has a limit to where he’ll go. It’s worth noting that Larkin’s full no-trade clause kicked in back in July, not that I ever thought the Wings would even entertain moving him this past summer. I think we’ll eventually see an extension done here.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
