Earlier this month I wrote about just how big Johnny Gaudreau's new contract is going to be with the Calgary Flames. Well, in case you've forgotten, there's another high profile forward in need of a new contract, as well. Just like Gaudreau, Sean Monahan is negotiating his second contract and is in line for a rather sizeable raise. There seems to be a sentiment, however, that Monahan's deal is going to come in noticeably lower than Gaudreau's. I'm not convinced that's going to happen, however, and I'm going to tell you why.

After the excitement of last season, this year has been a disappointment at best, and one that has caught many Flames fans off guard.

We've used the word "money" in so many different ways over the last two years when it comes to Sean Monahan, and for good reason. For two straight seasons, Monahan has done nothing but exceed expectations all over the map. It's been a different story in year three, though. For the first time in his young NHL career, Monahan hasn't lived up to sky high expectations, at least not so far this season. I've got a few reasons as to why that is.
