Experts Project Bunting's Next Contract, and You Won't Believe the Number

Michael Bunting will be a unrestricted free agent as of July 1st and rumors about his next contract are starting to come in.
A study by The Athletic reveals how much he should have and the number surprised many people.

A Six-Million contract for Bunting?

As reported by The Athletic:
"There is no forward on the market more valuable than Michael Bunting and it's not too difficult to see why. Since joining the Leafs Bunting has been on the ice for 58 percent of the expected goals and 62 percent of goals at five-on-five.

Very few players see a bigger jump in offensive creation than Bunting and he's scored 2.55 points per 60 at five-on-five in Toronto. That ranks 24th in the league over the time frame, narrowly ahead of Jonathan Huberdeau and Artemi Panarin. The only thing holding back his point totals is ice time, specifically on the power play."

But they also mentionned that the model that they used to calculate doesn't take into consideration that he played a lot of games alongside Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews. Can he have as many points if he's not playing with superstars?
Do you think he deserves a six-million contract?
