:tweet: @TheFourthPeriod: So Panthers get GM Tallon inked to a 3-yr extension, and he's working on the finishing touches on what's likely an 8-yr extension for Barkov

Cash or Czech?

Definitely coming into his own in his third NHL season, though he's missed at least 10 games in each of those campaigns. If they can get him at a lower AAV than they would pay after a bridge deal, it's probably worth it for how talented he is as a player.

He's pacing just over 60 points and just shy of 30 goals, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of money they try to tie him up to.

Saad plus?

Yeah, that's kinda what I'm thinking. Saad's at what, $6M flat? Barkov probably gets at least that, maybe a little more.
