Don't see how the terms can't be considered great. In an "off" year last year he had 19g and 26a.

More importantly he has a history of having an "off" year followed by a "good" year, and this should be his "good year." Even if not, if he can get you ~20g and ~25a for $1.1 million it's a steal.

He's also versatile and can play LW or center.

He can replace Naslund's production for 1/4 the price and give us greater depth. A move may be coming, and I am concerned he might be at the expense of Anisimov, but the value of the deal can't be ignored. It's a great signing.

Shouldn't ignore the pattern!
