The Athletic-magazine reel supplier Michael Russo believes he knows why the Minnesota GM Paul Fenton decided to sell one star, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2020.
Fenton ended up with a solution, that he did not want to continue granlund's contract next summer. He earns next season for 6.5 million dollars, and Fenton believes that Granlund requires a sizable salary increase.
Russo's view, it was perfectly understandable that Fenton wanted to exchange granlund's another top player.
– let's think about it this way: Is Granlund 8 million dollar player?
Russo thinks not.
– Such an important player as he was Wildille making other players better, it is difficult to give him a long contract, whose average annual salary is so high.
Fialan, 22, the current contract expires next summer, after which he becomes a restricted free agent. The new deal with young money rise bomb I'm sure the current 1.3 million dollars, but it is hardly yet reach granlund's level.
Russo says Granlund-trade press was also the fact that Fenton, who knows Fialan very Nashville-a year, really wanted to get just swiss Minnesota.
Now he found a way to do it, Russo knows.
