You also said that he shouldn't be paid more than the 1.7 we were paying Eaves, the amount that he's making at the moment. You also said that he'd ask for more because he could make it on the free market. Yet all the reports say he was offered more to play on other teams, but took his 1.7 to play in Carolina.

It's the first year of a contract, playing on a crappy team. He likely won't put up the numbers that apparently need to be put up to earn the contract (How many did Eaves put up?), but assuming we don't trade him (because he still has that energy reputation to other teams), I don't expect his contract to be an albatross ala Wallin/Kaberle.
