    If the Oilers, say, promised a one-way deal coming out of that ELC for 19-20 (and beyond), that would probably be enough to entice Persson to give up the bidding war.

    Otherwise, he's putting up way too much risk. If he regresses back to a Swedish Div 1 player, all of a sudden there's no contract coming to him from anyone.

    Well you could also argue that if he does regress, at least he got the signing bonus. It's almost like the free frogourt discussion on Simpsons from way back.
