Hansen practically signed a contract that he didn't want because he had to, it won't necessarily be the same case next year.
Matt Cooke and Pavel Bure had roster spots and had proven that they are NHL players. Jannik Hansen has not been able to hold down a roster spot in 2 years. Until he can prove something, nothing is a low ball. Especially with our uncertainty heading into the season as to whether there will even be room for him in the top 13.

Why on earth would we sign him to a longer term contract? Are you aware of our logjam on bottom 9 forwards?
