With players like Pettersson waiting to see what they are worth, this may become the new normal for contract extensions.

Pettersson Vs Matthews

Many fans would say that Matthews is miles better than Pettersson but that might not be the case anymore.
Pettersson collected his first 100 point season this past season on a struggling Vancouver Canucks team. Pettersson has been hovering near and around a point-per-game pace on a mediocore Canucks team ever since he came into the league.
