The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher have lots of work to do this summer. 

While most expect some major changes and free agent signings, Fletcher also has some in house decisions to make. 

Scott Laughton, Travis Konecny, Ryan Hartman, Justin Bailey, Travis Sanheim and Ivan Provorov are all restricted free agents. 

Out of the group, Provorov will likely get the biggest payday and what a payday it's going to be. 

It's highly unlikely that the two sides can't come to an agreement, however the longer they talk, the bigger the chance they'll work out a bridge deal which will likely hurt the Flyers in the long run. 

If the team can come to an agreement before any breakdown, Provorov will get paid and according to an interesting prediction model formula created by Evolving Wild of Hockey Graphs , shared by The Athletic, we can expect a long term deal. 

The prediction model uses all possible comparables along with advanced number crunching. 

The result?

A six year contract extension worth $6.46million a season. 

Would you be willing to sign Provorov to this type of deal that would keep him around until he's 28.
