    You know, when you read the headline "Devils closing in on 7 year deal with H", and you see it finish with "ischier", and then you see that number.....

    Put it this way, I'd say the chances five years from now of him being worth $5 million a year are considerably greater than the chances of him being worth $10 million a year. So the chances of him being a good but clearly overpriced player are considerably higher than the chances of him being a major star bargain.

    Yea, basically how I feel.

    $7.25 is a number that protects you from having to give him $11 or whatever....but I don't think Hischier has shown much to suggest he's going to get to that point.

    I think at worst he’s a decent top 6 guy for most of that term, so it’s unlikely to be a total disaster. But that deal is unlikely to have significant upside either.

    Shero could be a genius if Hischier starts putting up around 70 points, which is not unrealistic for him. this is only his third year

    Reading the pointy forums, a lot of NJD fans are happy with this deal, despite its risk.

    Wonder if in Shero and NJD management's minds this their move to soften the blow when they trade or don't sign Taylor Hall to a max money deal.
