It's not like he took a massive discount, but if you go back to the 2007 summer, not many were predicting that he'd only make 6.5 especially considering what Drury got.
The rumour was it was $7M every season, they weren't front-loading it like the Flyers did. Seems like a pretty good reason to sign here - if his tiny elf body sustains an injury he can't come back from, he's set for life after a couple seasons. And I don't know about you, but I'd rather have $52M than $49M.
