I seriously ......seriously doubt that. DPs deal is an average of more then 3.5 mill a year. Oshie has NEVER......NEVER scored over 20 goals and DP did it in far less games. I appreciate the hell out of Oshie, but it's all about production (mostly goals) when if comes to $$$$$$$. At this point we know what TJ is...he's a hard nosed two way guy that will give you 100% and tally up to 20 goals and 50 - 60 points. Would even argue that many in the organization may have viewed his ceiling higher before last season then they do now.
Now, It also depends on what you consider 'significantly higher'....I could see Oshie get 4 years @ around 4 - 4.25 mill a year (in part because of how much the fan base loves him), but not a penny more. The fact that he hasn't signed yet makes me think he could be looking for much more which may mean we agree to another one year deal.
