Hello my peeps, I just wanted to follow up the speculation about Marcus Johansson’s coming contract extension because the beautiful crew over at Japer’s Rink has a great article discussing the pros and cons to Johansson’s game and franchise value.

They compare MoJo’s speculated deal to the deals of similar players such as Carl Hagelin and others, and it seems that they would be happy to keep MoJo on a 2-year contract.

We seem to have similar views on how we’d like to see the franchise handle the negotiations. A deal should be coming soon, and we’ll see how close our speculation is to the truth.
