The more I think about this contract, the more I like it. At worst, it's like the first Zubrus deal -- reasonable cap hit for a solid 2nd or 3rd liner who brings a lot to the table, and good number of years, which is nice, because there's a decent change a stupid franchise might try to overpay him. We may not always be happy with his productivity (I certainly complained about Zubs sometimes), but by the end of the deal, we'll be pleased with the value we got. At best, he proves last year was just a sophomore slump, builds on his rookie year, and the contract is a steal. Short of injuries, I don't see this contract being a negative in any way.
