Right now in the NHL, we are obviously watching the two association finals. One pits the best team in the NHL (Rangers) against the reigning finalists (Panthers) and the other, the Oilers, our favorites in Canada, against the Dallas Stars.

Two good series that will definitely be ones to watch.

Afterwards, there will be the amateur draft and the free agent period which are always very interesting events. Personally, these are my favorite moments of the season when the Canadian is not in the spring tournament.

Today, in a text published on Daily Faceoff, Frank Seravalli gave his contractual predictions for free agents.

Here they are :

Obviously, Sam Reinhart and Jake Guentzel lead the charge with monster contracts of respectively $11.3 million annually for eight years (so, with Florida) and $9.25 million per season for seven years.

What should also be noted is the predicted contract for Jonathan Drouin.

Remember that the Quebecer had a very good season and that he helped extend his career in North America. Remember that at the start of the season, we were talking about Europe in his case.

In any case, he recovered in a good way and according to Seravalli, the Quebecer will sign a contract worth 20 million dollars, or five million dollars annually over four years. Not bad!

I don’t know if it will be in Colorado, because, let’s remember, it will be complicated for the two camps to come to an agreement, but one of the most influential journalists in the hockey world believes that he will have 20 million dollars.

Among the 75 names Seravalli compiled, Drouin would be the 18th highest-paid player annually, tied with Shayne Gostisbehere.

In addition to Drouin, seven former Canadiens players are on the list. Here they are in order from highest paid to least well paid:

  • Tyler Toffoli 4 years, $24 million ($6M annually);
  • Sean Monahan 3 years, $15.9 million ($5.3M annually);
  • Erik Gustafsson 3 years, $11.55 million ($3.85 million annually);
  • Max Domi 2 years, $7 million ($3.5M annually);
  • Casey DeSmith 1 year, $1.65 million;
  • Max Pacioretty 1 year, $1.5 million;
  • Mike Hoffman 1 year, $1.15 million.
