Long-term contract worth 25 million for Sean Monahan with the Canadiens?

On Thursday, on the BPM Sports airwaves, Martin Lemay and Mathias Brunet debated on a very interesting topic. What type of contract will Sean Monahan receive for the rest of his career?

Firstly, Brunet shares interesting information that Monahan would have turned down more lucrative deals elsewhere to sign in Montreal, where he had the opportunity to play more, garner more attention, and potentially sign a better contract later.

What's peculiar about this statement is that Monahan was still under contract with the Canadiens when he signed his extension on June 20, 2023. Theoretically, no other team could make him an offer or even talk to him before July 1.

Regarding his next deal, it's his last chance to sign for several years at a good salary, as he is 29 years old and has been hampered by injuries. Martin Lemay would reportedly offer him a 5-year, $25 million contract.


Mathias Brunet disagrees. For him, five years is too long for a 29-year-old player who has had significant injuries. How about you? Would you sign Sean Monahan for 5 years and $25 million?
