Cole Caufield contract: the file is nearing completion, reassures Tony Marinaro

Cole Caufield’s contract is the talk of the town, and with good reason. After all, he’s RFA and the Habs’ most popular player. The question is: when will he sign?

We know, according to Tony Marinaro, that a contract of at least seven years is possible, but that the principal interested party will not make more money annually than Nick Suzuki in order to respect a certain salary hierarchy.

Today, Marinaro, speaking live from Laval’s Café Milano, reassured fans that the matter is nearing completion.

“We’re nearing the finish line! – Tony Marinaro

When he entered the restaurant (he’s become a lot more popular since he started working at TVA Sports, that one), several fans asked him questions. They asked him about the information he reported a few days ago. Marinaro stuck to his guns and still believes that the American will sign a long-term contract, at an annual salary of less than $7.85 million (captain Nick Suzuki’s salary).

As pointed out by the popular Habs Fans TV site, Tony did his best impression of NHL Networkinsider Kevin Weekes.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

So there’s no need to worry, Caufield should be in Montreal to stay. Let’s hope the deal closes by the draft, which is 24 days away.
