    I find it hard to feel attached to any of the players, given what we've been through. I agree that I hope he stays but that I'm not holding my breath.

    I'd take him under $5M. More than that and it would depend on the term.

    Pretty much everything Matches said.

    He's too expensive to keep now playing this way. If we could somehow extract a mid-late 1st rounder from a competing team, I'd do that. Tierney for a couple more years along with all of the kids we have coming up in the centre position should be fine.

    Yeah with the season he's having it seems trading him would be the best option. I'd love to keep him, but by the time there is any chance we're good again, he'll be something like 29.

    Going into the season, the comparables would have had him around 4.25 long term, and at that price it would have been worth locking him up and by time we're good he could slot in properly as a third line center at a not unreasonable price.

    With the year he's having, it tips the balance - he's now too expensive for it to make sense to sign him, and his trade value is as high as it will get.

    Tierney's value is down, and he's gonna be RFA, so it would make the most sense to sign him now. I expect it'll be short term. No more than two years. Makes sense for us because we'll need a capable top six center while the kids are developing and with Pageau gone, and we can always trade him later. Makes sense for him because he's not going to get a better opportunity to play an important role and showcase himself so that he can capitalize with a big UFA contract at 27 or 28.

    Likely trade bait unfortunately, but I sure hope they keep him. I wonder what kind of salary and term he’s looking at. $5M / 4 years?
