It will be interesting to see how much Connor McDavid signs for once he's eligible to sign a contract on July 1.
Typically players coming off their entry-level contract don't have much in the way of negotiating power as they're restricted free agents without arbitration rights, but obviously McDavid is a unique case. It seems unlikely that Edmonton would risk playing hardball with a player that has already won the Art Ross Trophy at age 20. In fact, this looks like a case where McDavid holds all the cards and can basically set his own price should he be willing to agree to the maximum length, eight-year contract. With that in mind it will be interesting to see if his new deal exceeds the cap hit set by Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews ($10.5 million each). Of course, if he leaves money on the table then Edmonton will have more cap flexibility to build a team around him, so we'll see how much of a consideration that proves to be. May 18 - 10:18 AM
