If you really would have had to possibly pay him say 9 Mill a year over say a 6 year contract....what is the big deal in paying him that extra 3 million a year x 6 years=18 Million you saved up front on cap hit and pay him that over the last 6 years? Sure big cap hit for a 38, 39 and 40 year old...but what the hell is 3 years of overpayment when you get him at a steal from ages 28 to 35ish...and you can sign other players and make a run at your 5th, 6th, 7th Stanley Cup in the coming years in just under 2 decades.

Zetterberg is a Wing for life and a steal for the next 5+ years.

Just goes to show why Ken is one of the best in the business.
