  1. Main thing is teams technically aren't allowed to talk actual salary or numbers until July 1st.
  2. Clarkson is a closer comparison imo. Both 26/27 in their breakout year (Turned 27 late into the season, Clarkson in March, Bels in June) Both put up almost twice their career high goals (Clarkson 30 from 17, Beleskey 22 from 11) Both had almost twice as many goals as assists (Clarkson with 30 and 16, Bels with 22 and 10) Both had career years in the playoffs in long playoff runs (Clarkson with 12 points in 24 games, Beleskey with 9 points in 16 games)
  3. I would be absolutely 100% shocked if Beleskey ever matches his play this season. He benefited from being on a great team with 3 forwards spread over 2 lines that require planning around. That leaves room for the other 9 forwards (And specifically the 3 remaining on the top 6) to get more ice and more quality opportunities. Beleskey has not ever showed even an inkling of a reason to expect him to put up 25-30 goals, 50 points, until this season which so happens to be in a contract season 1 year removed from David Clarkson, who shares several qualities with Mr. Beleskey, cashed in big time on a contract. If you don't think that played a part in why Beleskey played so well this season, then I don't think you're thinking clearly. If that wasn't at least a part of why he played so well, then A: He's doing something wrong, and B: His agent is doing something wrong. Players notoriously over-achieve in contract years. Clarkson, Semin, Bickell just to name a few. Beleskey is not a 4-5m player, he's just not. That type of money is reserved for players who create offense on their own and a player you build a line around, not a player who gets the majority of his scoring opportunities because pressure is averted to a different player on the ice.
  4. Agreed, hope he gets the biggest contract possible, I honestly don't see any possibility of him living up to the contract he's going to get but I wish him the best.... So long as he doesn't go to a team I hate
  5. Chris Johnston ‏@reporterchris 3m3 minutes ago Matt Beleskey is heading to free agency, per #Ducks GM Bob Murray. Says team's best offer was "rejected immediately."
  6. He can try, He's a RFA so he's not in the same freedom area. He hasn't proved he's worth a big offer sheet, and the Ducks would match any reasonable offer sheet.
  7. I will always love Beleskey (Unless he goes to Dallas, LA, Ottawa or Montreal) but I have a strong feeling he's going to be Bryan Bickell/David Clarkson 2.0 and I'm pretty happy that it looks like it won't be us ponying up the money to allow that to happen.
  8. Darren DregerVerified account‏@DarrenDreger Unless talks with the Ducks escalate unexpectedly this week, plan is for Matt Beleskey to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. #TSN
