False. By giving Staal more now on a longer term deal, we will actually be saving cap space down the road. How much do you think he's gonna get 2 years from now as an arbitration eligible RFA?
If you aren't sure about a player, then yes, it doesn't make sense to give him big money/long term when you don't have to. But is there any question about Staal? I don't think so. We want him here long term.
