GMs are paying younger players big bucks. Seems smarter than paying older players to decline.

Yup. Young man's league. This is a great deal for both sides.

That's OK, he'll be old too after three of those.

Same thing. Sasha is a nickname.

Yeah his first name is Aleksander, but I copy and pasted the details from the tweet.

He went by Sasha at least in Finland before he was drafted although I've seen it used a few times here but yes you are correct.

This is about as good as it gets for both sides. Kid without much of a track record, but sky-high potential, gets what has to be a huge payday in his mind. Meanwhile, Florida locks down 6 of his prime years at only a $6 mil cap hit. In three years this contract's gonna look GREAT to Panthers fans. I hope this becomes the new model for modern-day contracts locking up young stars.
