I agree. When I just saw the headline I thought "okay-cool." When I saw that 2.14 million raise I said WOW. Kind of a ballsy move by Yzerman – or he’s extremely impressed by him as both a player and a leader/person. That high of a raise for the extension makes it like - almost paying for future potential. Last season was great - 65 points with a string of 13 or 14 game point streak, 3rd highest on the team. But that was one season... like I said potential. Hope he meets the new expectations now and stays at the very least consistent with last season's point totals (if not better).
Must have been his hatter the final game of the season that put him over the top!
