It's important to remember that the two youngsters, Guhle and Slafkovsky, will still earn $925,000 per year next season. There's one year left on their rookie contracts, but they are already eligible for a contract extension this summer.

It will be really interesting to see the amounts.

For Juraj Slafkovsky, an 8-year contract at $8 million per year is demanded by many, while the young Kaiden Guhle is expected to earn slightly less.

Our prediction? 8 years and $8 million per year for Slafkovsky and 8 years and $6.75 million per year for Guhle.

Let's see if Kent Hughes can pull a rabbit out of his hat in these cases.

Cases to follow.

Slafkovsky, 20, has collected 50 points in 82 games this season, including 20 goals.

Guhle, 22, has collected 22 points in 70 games this season, including 6 goals.
