Avalanche Low Balling Stewart and Mueller?




From THN:

 

Chris Stewart of the Colorado Avalanche is another good example. He led Colorado in goals with 28 last season and emerged as a budding power forward. Conventional wisdom might suggest the Avs would want to sign him to a long-term deal, but they’re only offering two years and Stewart will probably have to settle for something in the $2.5- to $3-million range. The Avs are being even more aggressive with Peter Mueller, to whom they’re offering about $1.6 million a season on a two-year deal.

 

This seems a little low to me (esp. Mueller's offer), but as the article points out neither of these players have really established themselves as long term, high level players.  It could be that at these contract levels in two years everyone could be complaining about how they are overpaid (Scott Hannan anyone?).  I do think the Av's may be shooting themselves in the foot though if they are playing hard ball and creating animosity between the players and organization.  Hopefully this all works out for the best in the long term... for the players and the team.
