YES, extend both of them
NO, don't extend either one
Extend only STOLL
Extend only WILLIAMS
Exactly, we are talking about Mr Game 7 and Mr Erin Andrews here
I don't think Stoll will be resigned unless he 1) regains the wrist shot that won all those shoot outs circa 2012 or 2) accepts $2 million a year on the fourth line.
Williams will not be resigned unless he tears it up this year or (with a meh year that is not on par with Pearson) tears up the playoffs. So in my opinion, it'll be after playoffs next year before we get anything on this front. I do think he will eventually get resigned.
Kopitar's deal will be in the 8million range, but the most important number is cap hit and we might see a 10 year contract that starts 8.5 million but ends in a few years of 4.25 million for AAC reduction.

Here is something I have noticed about the players DL brings in. Most of the forwards have a style that can translate on any of the 4 lines. While it is not ideal to have a 4-5 mil player taking 3 or 4 line mins, it may be valuable in the mentoring process.
The reason I mention this is because signing a stoll or williams or even a kopitar into their later years does not mean they will not have value in the franchise in those years.
Lindey Vey is totally gonna take Stoll's spot.

I would love to have at least a month after all of the leagues July 1st signings before I have to stomach more trade/extension talks...because we just won the cup. That's just me...I don't want to think about what ifs and the end of next year...that's what Deano has to do. I want to party like it's 2012!
Do I want both of them retained? Hell yes. Heck, if I ran the team there would probably be a bunch of middle aged former legends on the team!
