REPORT: NHL Insider reveals when he thinks Nazem Kadri will sign his contract
It is believed that Kadri initially priced himself out of the market asking for $9+ million on a 7 year deal.
Kadri set career high's this year scoring 87 points in 71 games, and adding an additional 15 in 16 playoff games en route to winning the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche:
It has been rumoured for a few weeks now that Kadri has already agreed to a 7 year $49 million contract with the New York Islanders, but it's being kept a 'secret' by Lou Lamoriello. We saw him do this with both Kyle Pamieri and Zach Parise last season.
According to John Shannon, a '' well placed source'' informed him that the deal will be finalized in the next week. While he was on the 'Sekeres and Price Podcast', Shannon shared the following information:
"I do think he ends up with the New York Islanders...it wouldn't surprise me that it gets done this week...Lou has to move some $...I got it from a very good source that is going to happen very soon."@JShannonhl on Nazem Kadri. #NYI @GreatClips
