Host: “That was Shane Pinto’s thirtieth recreation evening. He had 4 factors. He’s bought 25 factors in video games. His factors per recreation is .781 that’s .

What’s Shane Pinto’s subsequent contract appears to be like like? He wants one after this season.”

Like, would he get contentious in a contract negotiation? Would he get actually bullish? Like hear, he’s taking part in on a degree, a fee, so let’s simply say take away the playing, the suspension, all that different stuff, proper? Okay. So if a participant his age put up 25 objectives and 40 , 65 factors, that man could be thought-about a cornerstone piece of a franchise.

That man would get a contract for seven years and $42 million, proper? Possibly somewhat bit lower than Dylan Cousins (muffled) in Buffalo, proper? $6 million, $6.5, one thing like that. I don’t know if they provide him that given the historical past.

I’m wondering in the event that they’re like, hear, we’ll offer you a one-year deal for $3.5 (million). Do it once more, full season, let’s get our crew so as and then you definitely’ll get the longer-term contract.

I simply surprise however then, you understand, will Shane Pinto given what’s occurred, will he say no, no, I deserve now or will he be like form of culminating to a short-term deal? I’m unsure. I might, if I used to be operating the crew, I might suppose short-term could be preferable for me. If I’m saying Pinto long run, clearly, preferable for the participant.”

Host: “Yeah. Yeah, I agree with you. The, the whole, what occurred for the primary half of the season, what makes this very distinctive, I believe it’s way more lower and dried as to how this would possibly, the crew would possibly strategy it? How he would possibly strategy it had this been quote air quotes an everyday season?

However that is very distinctive, and I believe he was and when he got here again, I, he was very appreciative that the crew had his again. Each clearly, behind the scenes, however even publicly as nicely. And, and look, you’re not going to depart a bunch of {dollars} on the desk. I perceive all that a part of it. However I do suppose that possibly that comes into the equation somewhat bit within the subsequent negotiation.”

Johnson: “100%. Precisely what I’m speaking about. Like the place did his, you understand, he would really feel very grateful for the help that he had publicly, privately, all the remainder of it. He would really feel a way of loyalty.

Now I might at all times, to not be the chilly bitter ex-player, however like, loyalty is a quite simple factor as you guys know, in professional sports activities, proper? Like chances are you’ll really feel it they usually might really feel it to you however as quickly as you understand you’re not helpful, there’s one other higher choice, that loyalty doesn’t actually lengthen very a lot additional than your utility to the crew. So you need to do what’s greatest for you.

However I simply, I yeah, I might suppose that they might, the Ottawa would form of play that card. Like hear, you understand, let’s make you do it. Let’s, let’s have you ever do a full yr. Let’s have a standard prep. Let’s have, with our roster, lineup collectively for a yr and see what occurs. You recognize, it’s been an excellent, I suppose it’ll be 40 video games you’ll, 41 video games, probably play. However let’s allow you to do it for a full season.

Yeah, however each, each different participant with that sort of factors per recreation. It’s not like he was injured for 41 video games, proper? Like he had some form of harm historical past. It was a completely distinctive and never repeatable scenario that had him lacking half the yr. So it wouldn’t be like, nicely, you need to do a full, full yr. Like I wasn’t damage. I wasn’t you understand, I wasn’t inconsistent. I simply was not allowed to play. However I nonetheless suppose, yeah, one-year, one-year $4 million. One-year $3.5 million after which do it once more and then you definitely get your long-term deal.”
